Keep Calm

It never hurts to change up your art in your house every now and again so it doesn't get borning. I loved my art print from my brother, but it was time for a little change. Here is the main wall in the "craft room/eat-in-kitchen. It's supposed to be an eating area, but since I usually am cooking while trying to entertain the kids we turned it into a craft room for them so they could get creative while I cook dinner.  Here is the wall as it looked just a little while ago.

And here's how it looks now.  I found the cute "Keep Calm and Carry On" poster at A.C. Moore during my son's birthday party he attended there. I got to sneak off and look around the store a bit. The poster just happened to be on sale and also the color was perfect.  A nice teal green.  


I also took the wooden painted skeleton keys that were hanging in my entry way and hung them on the pin boards. I thought they needed a new home since the front entry way started looking a bit crowded after I painted the horizontal stripes seen here.



You'll probably also notice that the clock is gone. I relocated to above the green hutch. I like the way the wall looks now.  It's also a nice reminder of daily life with 3 kids.  Sometimes I look at it, take a deep breath and keep going (especially during certain days when I just want to scream or run away.) LOL. I promise you I won't, but I certainly think it on occasion.


And just in case you don't know about the history of this poster you can read about it here.  You can also find this memorabilia on Amazon

Now just Keep Calm and Carry On my friends. :-)
