This is my first entry for a Craftster Challenge. I painted a wall hanging I found at our dollar store.

I was inspired to paint this from a book my daughter (pixieval) gave me, "Moving on After Moving In: AFter the boxes are unpacked". My husband and I just moved to North Dakota from Oregon to be closer to my daughter and grand daughter.
This was a challenge for me because all the little pieces were in the way of the paint brush, and it was very time consuming to paint without smearing all my paint!

I love how you took a generic dollar store item and made it something personal and special and it looks fab.
