Be Still

Wednesday, August 4, 2021
Happy Wednesday! I'm still off work as I recover from vocal cord surgery - but am now able to speak. My voice isn't what I'd like it to be so I'm doing my best to be patient. I'm currently camping with my youngest as I thought it would be a fabulous way to rest by reading and taking things easy as I recover. Plus, it's a wonderful opportunity to use my new-to-me trailer (caravan/small RV).

Imke is our fabulous hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and she's chosen the theme "Just Because". I made a bit of wall decor for the trailer. A few months ago, I picked up a wooden board (with a hook and rope for hanging already on the back) and decided it was time to put it to use! I dry brushed the wood with white and grey paints (the colours I painted the interior of the trailer) and then got out my incredibly dusty Silhouette to cut out the letters. Be still and know is actually from a Bible verse - and I thought it was fitting for the trailer as it's my getaway place to be still and try to forget the busyness of life!!

Here's my finished wall art:

which started out as:

And before and after photos of the dinette area of the trailer, just because!!

I'm almost done the trailer with just some final decor items to create and hang. Once everything is finished, I'm excited to share the full reveal! I really am so happy with how things have turned out.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created for their "Just Because" projects - and then create and link up your own! We always love having you join our fun!

Wow, what a transformation! It turned out very nice, Kate. And the self-designed artwork fits perfectly.

My gosh, Kate, your camper is inspirational! I totally love all the improvements you've Made (sign included!)'s truly an oasis to get away in. Almost makes me think I could enjoy camping, it's so wonderful. (: I'm glad you were able to get away for some R&R while you recover.

What a transformation! Really cool artwork, as it's handmade you won't find one just like it.

You have breathed such awesomely lovely new life into that fab space on wheels. Way to revamp and make this wonderful camper all the more inviting and your own.
