A Banner That Will Make You Smile

I felt that my room needed something else to make it feel more “complete.”  I wanted to do something crafty that I could hang on my walls which are still a little bare that would bring color and happiness into the room.  I decided to make a banner to hang above my window.  I was inspired by Kate’s thankful banner and Meg’s peace banner.  I had first wanted my banner to say “Imagine” because it is something I’m doing all the time and it is a variation of “dream.”  I decided it would be too long, however so I chose “smile.”  The word smile makes me happy and I thought it would help to remind me to not get overly stressed out from school.

A paper mache pear, but it wasn’t just any paper mache pear, it was made out of leaves!! It was so cool, with the perfect shade of green, but I found it to be a tad big (it was about a foot and a half tall by a foot wide) and I did not want to spend twenty dollars on it when I had no idea if it would match anything in my school apartment. I passed it up, but I thought about it for the next two weeks where I scoured online shops and even emailed my favorite Youngsters about it, with no luck. Luckily, I did get some good buys while I was there, which I will share
