This Is Our Happy Place

Happy New Year Everyone!!  As we enter into a new year, just remember that you have 365 blank pages to write a book, make it a good one.

I just want to share a quick project with all of you.  The saying, “This Is Our Happy Place” has special meaning for me.  When my husband and I bought our retirement home in October of 2015, he still had 7 months to retire.  On Fridays we would drive 2 hours to the house and spend Friday and Saturday here and then drive back to our home in Cranberry Twp.  We called the  retirement home,  “Our Happy Place” because when we came here, it was a time we could just get away and have time to ourselves and just relax.  So, I have always wanted to have a sign made that had this saying on it. But, being the “frugal” person I am, I’m not willing to pay the price or the shipping charges.

So, I decided to print the saying onto heavy card stock paper that I purchased at JoAnn Fabrics- also available at Michaels. I used a darker color paper because I decorate primitive style, but you can do this on white if you like the farmhouse look.
I went through some of my old frames and found this 8″ x 10″ frame and after some trimming of the card stock (because it’s typically 8 1/2″ x 11″)  framed the quote.  I used a piece of homespun material on the back to hang it with since I only have one nail in this stone fireplace and the frame is made to hang from 2 nails.  The one thing I dislike about the real stone, it’s very difficult to put nails into it without drilling a hole first.

I have included the saying in a PDF format here–>  This Is Our Happy Place if you want to download and print it for yourself.  Just click on the link above and then use the save as feature on your computer or laptop.

Thank you all for visiting my blog today and if you are a frequent visitor, thank you!  I hope in 2019 more people will leave comments….I see so many other bloggers that have people interacting with them and I just don’t know why I never have that?  If you have any suggestions, please let me know!!

In the meantime, here’s to a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous New Year!
