Hope Canvas Art

When I saw this sign on Crap I've Made I fell in love with the design and knew that I wanted one in my house but I didn't want it to say "love" - 
I wanted something else.

Nothing against love - I just didn't feel it would work in the room and it just didn't sit right.
Does that ever happen with you?
 I just knew I needed a different word.

And so I thought and thought and thought.

And then I had the opportunity to attend a fireside where Stephanie Nielson (NieNie) told of her story and how when we go through trials in our lives we need to have have hope. (she is completely adorable in real life!)

Hope.

I love that.

And it was perfect!


I tried using the same chipboard letters she did but the H and O were so much wider than the P and E that it looked so dumb - and then I found these cute little letters and they worked out perfect!
I painted the letters the colors I am doing in my family room -
I am excited for it to come together.
