My new gallery wall in my living room


I finally got around to hanging my gallery wall!  I love that it's an eclectic mix of art that I made, bought, and purchased from friends!  Oh and the bentwood rocker belonged to my Mom (who passed away when I was six), so it holds a special place in my heart. too  I love the swirls and curls, though I may consider giving it a rad paint update! Dexter appears to like it too!

What I hung...
– An X I got at the Queen Bee Market at the Snap Conference 2 years ago (Yay, I'm going again in a couple weeks)
– Color Wheel clock from the San Fran Moma Store
– Pack-O-Fun art by my friend Silvia Chenault
– S photograph I took when I worked at DecoArt (it was a batch of store samples)
– Fresno is For Lovers artwork I did for an art show last year
– 7 art from Anthropologie (I think)
– Love Alphabet letter canvas (get tutorial here)
– Craft a Life You Love canvas I painted this year on stage in the iLoveToCreate booth
– Retro ladies framed print from Target
– KY state fair "World's Largest Food Processor" postcard (see it in full here...cracks me up)
– You Bring Color to My Life printable I designed (you can download it here)
– Embroidered Squirrel Quote art made in 1978 (the year I was born) and thrifted for $2 in downtown Fresno
– Cute Playing Card cat mixed-media art by my friend Laura of The Peculiar Palette.

I actually kinda wanted to create a gallery wall that went from floor to ceiling like this one on A Beautiful Mess, but I just couldn't go there for whatever reason (maybe a lack or adventure or fear, I don't know). I do think it turned out nice overall and is colorful like me!  And thank goodness I finally got this stuff hung.  You won't believe it, but I totally have had the clock for almost 4 years and I have never had it officially hung...shame on me! LOL!

Oh and I can't forget to mention PeeWee who's sitting in the rocking chair and the cool lamp my brother-in-law Joel brought back for me from Saudi Arabia!

Happy hump day, y'all!
