You may not know, but we recently bought our first home! It is a fantastic, well-built home and we love it; but it needs a LOT of cosmetic updating inside. You can follow along on instagram with the hashtag #ffcoastalfarmhouse (Feathers Flights Coastal Farmhouse). We’re starting in in the front room and moving through the rest of the house. The unfortunate thing about updating means I’m not putting up any pictures or art yet, and I’m not decorating for any holidays. My kids love when I decorate, so they’ve been missing out since I started packing in January. My sister recently created an alphabet bunting that you can purchase, but I get to share a free “FAMILY” version! (I also linked to a free “CREATE” and free “HOME”.)
I put this up to remind myself about what’s important. Remodeling my home isn’t as important as who is inside my home. Our home is definitely livable, so the remodeling doesn’t actually need to be done. Sometimes I’m a little stressed out about remodels, or I’m tired from staying up late painting. Having a little reminder about the importance of “FAMILY” is good for me to see on a daily basis.
Download the file and print it on cardstock. Feel free to use colored cardstock for something fun. Cut along the given lines. Add two hole punches along the top and thread some baker’s twine, yarn, hemp, or anything you have. I used some navy blue bias cut fabric that I had leftover from a project.
