I want to thank you for all the nice emails and prayers for the Hubs. We did not get the results we were hoping for on the tests run this week. He will have a Cardiac Cath on Monday with the possibility of stents and balloons if they find blockages that can be fixed this way. If there are blockages that can’t be fixed with stents, then we will need to move on to a bypass. We are hoping and praying that this will not be the case. This is just one piece of the puzzle. Once these possible blockages are fixed, then we have to move on to fixing the Atrial Fib/Flutter and bringing down his high heart rate. His heart is working too hard and cannot afford to weaken any more than it already has. Unfortunately, we still have several weeks of tests and procedures ahead of us.
On another note … I am thrilled and honored to have Peggy from The Decorating Files guest posting for me today. Peggy has become such a good friend and is such a thoughtful and kind person. She has been looking out for me in the “blog world” since the beginning and I feel so lucky to have connected with her. Thank you so much for being here today Peggy!
Hi everyone! It’s Peggy from The Decorating Files. I’m so happy to be able to help Missi out today as a guest blogger here at Havoc to Heaven. I know we’re all sending her and her husband lots of love and positive energy. They are both in our thoughts.
As I was organizing a closet the other day, I found some of my daughter’s childhood artwork. When she was little, she loved to draw. At this time of year she was quite prolific. And I, being the proud parent, wanted to display every masterpiece she created. That got me to thinking about the different ways we display kid’s artwork. I thought it would be fun to share some of the creative ideas I’ve found for showing off our kid’s latest creations.
Creative Ways to Display Kid’s Artwork
1. Rows of curtain wire and clips make it easy to change out kid’s art as they create new masterpieces. You can find this type of curtain wire at Ikea.
2. Dollar store clipboards and Styrofoam alphabet mats have been spray-painted in a dark silver metallic. The boards and letters are then attached to the wall for an ever-changing art display.
3. Wood suit hangers are repurposed as functional art hangers. Rotating new work is a snap.
4. This creative wall consists of a chalkboard, bulletin board, magnetic board and cork board. All are fabulous ways to showcase a child’s artwork.
5. Attach individual heavy-duty sheet protectors to the wall and then slip in the latest masterpiece. Several rows make for an impressive display.
6. Paint frames on the wall or use removable fabric decals to create perfect places to highlight a child’s creativity.
7. Create your own art gallery. Frame pieces of cork board in a variety of frames and then paint it all out in a shimmering metallic. Use decorative pins to attach each piece of artwork. Custom printed vinyl letters are used to further personalize the space.
