8.  For those at a loss for words we have some of our favorite quotes about Dad's. Use them to personalize cards, photobooks or scrapbooking pages.

Any man can be a father. It takes someone special to be a dad.

Fatherhood is pretending the present you love most is soap-on-a-rope.  ~Bill Cosby

I don't care how poor a man is; if he has family, he's rich.  ~M*A*S*H, Colonel Potter

"My father didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it." -- Clarence Budington Kelland

{DIY} West Elm inspired curtain panels

We adore WestElm. They have super trendy home decor and the color palettes are dreamy! If you love west elm than this DIY tutorial is for you. Get the look of these fab curtain panels on a shoestring budget!

Ikat Ogee Linen Window Panel 59-79 dollars each.


Materials Needed:
*Acrylic paint
*Fabric Medium paint {helps the paint adhere to fabric}
*Roller brush {you can also use a stencil dabber at certain parts}
*Curtains of your choice
*Stencil
*Blue painters tape {or any preference of tape}
*Drop cloth or something to lay under your curtain

Create your own stencil or buy one...this stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils

Take the time to prep and be sure you have everything secured down. Optional: tape down the drop cloth so it won't move and cause problems, and also tape down the curtain to prevent any slipping.


You can use a stencil dabber or soft roller to paint.
Fabric Medium is the secret to painting on fabric.  You can buy it at Micheal's or almost any craft store.  It helps keep the paint softer and adheres to the fabric better than if you attempted to paint directly to fabric without the medium.  Mix the two together, and if you're using paint with color, it doesn't effect the result of the color.




Lay the stencil back over a partly painted area to make the pattern continuous for the 3rd and 4th section.  Just be sure to take your time and pay attention to the details.  


Fabulous! PB&JStories I think we just might like the painted version better!
