20 cent Wall Art

A couple of years ago I had bought this sign as a reminder to enjoy life and use my time wisely. To enjoy every moment and spend as much time as I can with my family. Just a reminder that the time I have been given will not come back again.... be it with my kids or hubby.

my camera switched to 2004 again! :(

I decided to change it so..... I got to work!

I purchased a scrap book paper from Michael's for $0.20, cut it to fit the board and modge podged it on the sign. 

yay my camera is back to 2011.

Then, I free handed the following on the sign:

'The Best Things in Life aren't things' with a sharpie. (I messed up on the apostrophe in spite of going over contractions with Ishaan recently.)

Here it is on my gallery wall
