I am so grateful for the creativity I am allowed at work. Sometimes it takes the form of creating posters, or wellness programs, or tshirts, or in the case a commercial. Through a grant we received, we have the opportunity to by ads on TV, billboards, and radio that will send healthy messages to the community. After inspiration at a conference, I worked up an idea to highlight some of the outdoor opportunities that Waco has to offer. I worked with our graphics department and we put together this commercial.
We have decided to build a whole campaign around this commercial and "I'm Healthy and I Know It" .
I think it came out great and turned out just the way I thought it would.
Just a quick look at nursery art I created for a friend.
It is a Jungle themed nursery so this seemed like a good idea. I used giraffe print scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby and 14inch MDF letters. I painted all the letters first. Then I cut out all the giraffe spots and glued them on. The little animals are just extras.
Our fireplace has been bugging me since day one. I love having it, but it is a boring and the colors just dont match with the rest of the house. The surround is the same as the entire floor! Just has I made up my mind to reface the surround with plywood, Pinterest came along to save the day.
I found a picture of painted tile! Why had I not thought of that? I have painted almost everything else!
So I took the plunge. I started by taping and priming. I used Exterior white paint that we had left over from our porch and used a foam roller brush.
It looks great and since this is a VERY low traffic area, I'm thinking it will hold up fine. This is the same paint I used for the kitchen cabinets as well, and those still look great.
You can see the trim we added around the insert for a more polished look. Also, some of the old grout color was showing so we used liquid nails to put it up.
For a $15 project, I think it made a big difference. It feels so much brighter and bigger and it matches much better. We have plans to do the floors soon anyways so I'm sure it would have needed a change anyways.
