I've begun making a banner for Avery's party. I was back and forth between using fabric and paper but ultimately decided on paper mainly because I had a hard time finding fabric in my red, pink, white & grey color scheme that I liked.
I made a pennant template and traced it onto my scrapbook paper. I just need to punch some holes in the corners and string it up! I haven't decided if I'll add lettering to it or not yet...we'll see.
The patterned red & pink paper looks almost identical to my tablecloths that I scored at Homegoods on clearance after Valentine's day!
Avery & I also ventured to the paint store to pick up a few red paint chip samples for the office closet...or is it closet office. (office mood board)
She insisted on holding the samples on the car ride home. There was a slight meltdown when I tried taking them away so I decided to let it be. I was just hoping I wouldn't arrive home to find a half chewed piece of paper hanging out of her mouth but she was a good little assistant and tucked them in her seat.
I explained to the woman at the paint store my plan and she told me to take the chips home, tape them up in the closet (near each other NOT next to each other) and bring a lamp in (since I'll be putting a lamp on the desk as the light source.
So that's what I did.
I sat on the floor looking into the closet for awhile...
I have to say the red I originally liked in the natural light looks totally different in there and one of the hues I wasn't that into is now growing on me. It is very important to check out your chips at all different times of the day so I'll be checking on them first thing tomorrow to see what they look like in daylight.
