Play on words...
Having 6 sons, you gotta embrace all things manly. Like armor. My boys love the stuff. So this is my latest paint project. I used stencils I bought at Walmart and just threw them up there- the kids helping decide what words to use and where. They love standing in front of the steps and reading them out loud. I think me and the girls are gonna need a spot somewhere for the "Fruit of the Spirit." Just sayin'.

what a great stencil project! I think I would have gone from the bottom to the top (so it could be read going up the stairs), but it looks fun and a wonderful "reminder" for your family...

Gives me ideas for adding words to a "coin" quilt...

I love this!!!What a clever idea! I need to repaint Ethan's room. Something like this stenciled on his wall would be perfect for him!

Love the vest!

Have your tried using that smaller pink crochet thread that I sent you yet? I knew you would be up for the challenge! :)

I LOVE THIS!!! I've got me a set of stairs...or two or three...that could use something like this!!! Can't wait to show my girls your "'nother good idea!"

Love you leaps and bounds!

Nice, nice. In a whole other area, I like the sign over the doorway there just as much.

Maybe the hallway to the guest room would be a good girly space...blends with hospitality, ya know.

XOXOXOXO
