It’s here ladies! The Creative Chick Parade is starting today, and our theme is Mod Podge Mahem. This is a blog hop, so if you link up either here or on another co-host’s blog, it will show up on all of the hosting blogs.
I was so excited when I found out that today’s theme would be Mod Podge Mahem. I’ve had a project on my mind for awhile (what’s new), and was glad to have an excuse to actually get it done! I came across this tutorial forever ago from How Does She, and instantly knew it was something that I need to have in my house.
Here’s how mine turned out (the classiest part is the tack that it’s hanging on):
You see, I’m Canadian, and Canadians remove their shoes when they enter someone’s house. Seriously, it’s a cultural thing I think. Maybe it’s partly due to the fact that it’s often snowing and shoes are wet, I don’t know, but I could probably count on my fingers how many times in my life I’ve walked into my parents house with my shoes on (please don’t tell my mom that it’s even that many times, I promise I felt really guilty each time). I can honestly say that last time I was in Canada, I literally crawled on my hands and knees (careful that my shoes made NO contact with the floor) through my sister’s entire upstairs to get from the front door to the back entry. Actually, I think I did that twice last time I was there! Ada takes “clean” to the next level, and I was not about to mess with that!
Anyway, so now that I’m living in the US, I think this sign will come in handy. I still feel guilty when people say “leave your shoes on” and I listen. I just can’t help feeling like I’m doing something naughty and wrong. Now, if you’ve ever been to my house and have left your shoes on, please know that I still love you! …But I’ll love you even more next time if your shoes are left at the door :).
If you’re wondering, Leslie from My Tulip Garden did the vinyl lettering for me. She was super quick and it turned out exactly how I wanted it.
Let’s keep today’s links strictly to Mod Podge projects. You’ll have chances to link up different themes as the week goes on, so no worries :).
Come back tomorrow for our Sew What? themed party!
