Season of Thanks

Autumn is my favorite season. I love the colors of the leaves, and the crispness of the air. The fragrance of wood burning in fireplaces is a scent I wish Yankee Candle would make...it's all good. Because I loathe the over commercialization of Christmas, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. There's not much that can be done to distort being thankful, and I like that.

I bet you're wondering what this picture is of. It's a Decor Element. What's that, you ask? Well, it's something I haven't talked much here (although SU! added them to its line earlier in the year), mostly because I didn't know how to describe it. I wanted to show it to you. And I was waiting for this design to debut in order to do that. This is what a Decor Element is: a vinyl, self-adhesive design that can be added to your household to bring style to your walls, windows, and mirrors--pretty much any flat surface will receive them. It looks pretty boring as is, but it's FAR from it. Let me show you just one of the gazillion things you can do with it.

What do you think? I love this! The shadow box was purchased at Hobby Lobby. I removed the protective backing from the vinyl design, applied it to the glass, rubbed over the lettering to transfer it. Then I added some Autumn Vine DSP and fake leaves, and created something beautiful for my walls.

Would you like to make this for your home, or as a gift for someone you are thankful for? I'm going to host a class at my house, and I'd be willing to mail all the elements to anyone who'd like to make this but who doesn't live in my neck of the woods.

The Decor Element will be available beginning Oct. 1, and the cost is $14.95, plus taxes and shipping & handling. If you aren't inspired by this project, but have other designs for this Decor Element, know that it is temporary. It can be removed from anything you apply it to without damaging the surface. It just can't be reapplied. With this in mind, wouldn't this make a great greeting for a front window or glass door? Other designs will be available that celebrate the holidays.

Please leave a comment if you'd like to order one or want more information.
