This is a picture of my fireplace mantle right now. The chalkboard art is left over from New Beginnings. I was never happy with the top though and ended up erasing it and adding the boat/water scene. I love it so much better now and will probably leave it up for awhile.
I ordered the clock/scale on the end a couple of weeks ago and it came in the mail last week. I was so excited when it arrived that I quickly found a place for it on the end. What I haven't been so sure about is what I wanted to put in the top. After going back and forth with a few ideas I thought it would be fun to add holiday decor.
The first of a few projects I have in mind for the whole mantle is this little egg box. It's a digital cut by Jamie Cripps and I thought it would look really cute in my clock/scale. I added a few Samantha Walker files to Jamie's for the weaving detail on the sides and the grass.
I have a banner in mind as well as a few more things, but one project down and a little Easter/Spring love going on.
We have been enjoying the typical Spring weather here in Utah. Sunny and warm one day and rain/hail storms the next. Sunday was beautiful and we ended up getting a walk in after dinner. I was so excited to see so many trees in bloom.
Also caught these two boys holding still for a moment. I take so many pictures of them, but sometimes I capture a picture that makes me stop and realize just how quickly they are growing up.
