Wall Art and Chocolate Covered Cherries

It's been a busy week. I have done so many projects and the time has just flown. So, you know all of those quotes that are floating around Facebook these days? The ones that get posted to your wall and make you annoyed? Until you read it, and depending on what it says you get even more annoyed or perhaps a little less before you remove it from your wall? Well I saw one of those on Pinterest and actually was impressed. It said, "I want to have adventures with you". It was cute and simple and I loved it instantly. So I decided to make it my own:) I had two old canvases laying around so I slathered them with white paint and designed this cute, two-piece wall art. I painted it freehand, so it has a sloppy look to it, but it's meant to look like that, so don't be too critical;) and the color I used is Martha Stewart's Duck Egg. Then those stinking cherries. They are so much work, and half of them didn't turn out due to contaminated chocolate... But what I learned from this experience, and my last making these is that it is better to use stemmed cherries. Much, much easier to dip them that way, and I personally think they look cuter. Ok, just one more big project on my list this week before I can sit back and relax. For a day. Before the crazies of the holidays are here! It's going to be amazing!


  1. Those chocolate covered cherries look awesome! We might have to make some when we are up since Anders can't have Idle-Isle.

  2. Hey, that's a grand idea! I'll bring the stuff for it so we can. I now know what works and what doesn't so I think if we put our talents together we could make them to perfection!
