Not Me! Monday


Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
********************************
The boys and I did NOT tag along with Jason on a business trip to Atlanta, GA this week. For some reason, I did NOT think that a week in a hotel with my three {very rambunctious} boys would be more relaxing than a week at home without daddy. I might have been a little wrong!
We did NOT a pretty good time despite all the rambunctiousness.

We did NOT go swimming,

go the movies for free,

go to an Atlanta Braves game,and eat lots of yummy food from

{picture from our last visit to Atlanta in 2008} and here!

We also did NOT stop over in Birmingham for a little trip to the zoo while Jason was at a meeting. I did NOT tweet that when we got to the zoo, we increased their wild animal population by three!
I think I was right on that one:)

Art in the Hall

This project has been on my to do list for a few months now. While the boys were at VBS last week, I finally got out my supplies and started working on it.
********
The clothes line for the boys' art has been hanging in the hallway for a few years now, but it always seemed kind of boring...you know, except for all the cute art hanging on it. So after I got my Cricut in January, I knew that I had to find the perfect quote to hang above the boys' art.

What do you think?!?
I decided on this Pablo Picasso quote a while back when I did a blog post using the quote. I printed it out just to make sure that I got all the letters cut correctly. Then I went to work {or really the Cricut did} cutting out the letters on black vinyl.
I laid out all my letters and then worked out the spacing. I used transfer tape to line up the words and then attach them to the wall. I also drew a pencil line on the wall to help keep the quote as straight as possible.
Now the hallway seems much more complete!
I love what a little bit of vinyl and a little bit of time can do for a space!
Do you have any vinyl words or decorations in your house?
