Quarantine Blues... Every little thing gonna be alright...

I gotta confess, a good portion of last week, I was kinda in a FUNK, a little cabin fever, a little depressed... did the bare minimum with the kids, put off projects, binge watched netflix shows til 2am, and just didn't want to get out of bed. I guess I had gotten the quarantine blues, if that's a thing. But, I snapped out of it (thanks to my hubby & my bestie) and I'm back to the grindstone. Thank GOD!

Yesterday, one of my orders from Etsy was for a wall art piece I had created years ago! I forgot I even had it up on my shop. But, happy I got it and happy for the reminder, that "Every little thing gonna be alright!" This was one of my favorite Bob Marley songs. I used to sing it to my oldest daughter when she was little, which resulted in this wall art piece I made for her bedroom.  

I cut all these out with the CRICUT and adhered all the pieces together with Beacon Zip Dry Glue. To be honest, I usually use Scotch double sided tape, literally for everything. Over the years, I've used well over a dozen types of adhesives and the double sided tape was my "go to" mainly because it was easy to apply and most of all, the least messy. I got this Beacon glue sample a month ago from when I attended Alt Summit and decided to give it a try. I really like it! It's clear, not too messy, and doesn't wrinkle the paper when it dries (like some liquid glues tend to do). It was perfect for this paper-crafted wall art piece! 

I used some foam squares to give it a raised look and added some rafia ribbon

This customer wanted a frame included.

Rise up this mornin'
Smiled with the risin' sun
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true
Saying', ("This is my message to you")
Singing' "Don't worry 'bout a thing
'Cause every little thing gonna be alright."
Singing' "Don't worry (don't worry) 'bout a thing
'Cause every little thing gonna be alright!"

During my time in the quarantine blues (lol), my kids and I checked out TikTok. I gotta say, it's kinda addicting and very time consuming... almost like how Pinterest can be for me. But, that's another story! My daughter suggested I should start making videos. So... below, is my first TikTok video.  There was sort of a learning curve in trying to make it... but I figured it out.  I feel old. hah! 

You can get this wall art piece in any color scheme you'd like. Click here to purchase. 


Easter's almost here... smile with the rising sun,
