Enjoy Chickens

Do you ever become obsessed with a craft idea? Heather and me? All the time. Then once you've finished said project, you find excuses to go into the room just to look at your work. Well, in my case I don't even look for excuses, I'll just stop in the middle of doing something and go look at it with no shame.
The start of the obsession...my mom made me a really cute table runner. At first I really liked it, but once I got it home and on my table I realized I LOVED it. I never pick out such bright colors and it just made me happy.
My obsession turns into a new focal wall. I had a painting in my kitchen that I hate(d). So now I will have a new wall, centered around my table runner. What the heck, let's mod podge some wooden letters with coordinating papers.

Hmm...I need more, pizazz. I turn to my new favorite decor item, CHICKENS (more on them later)! And my new favorite crafty material, FELT. Using the same funky colors I put together some art for my new wall.

And, here you have it!

Okay, I gotta go look at it again.
PS If anyone wants more specifics on how to, let me know, I'd love you fill you in ;)

We've added this to Amy Lou Who's Sew & Tell Friday's, go check out the links and link up yourself!
