Sunday, September 27, 2015 little important word

Hello is important. 
With that one little word we can let people know how we feel about seeing them. There is the happy and excited hello to greet an old friend, the sad and compassionate greeting when someone has lost a loved one, the stoic "gritted teeth" hello to a person we didn't want to see. A resentful "hello mom" from a teenager, or the annoying hello from sales people at my door are my least favorite. I do love the "rush into my arms hello" from a grandchild, the hello that brings unexpected flowers from my hubby, and the "hello is this Nellie's Cottage?" retreat inquiry. Hello can be hailed in as many ways that people are different. 
This project is meant to be a cheerful hello for my retreaters at Nellie's Cottage. Three pieces of vital information will be displayed on that cute pink chalkboard, the wifi info (first question they always ask) my cell (I am the go to girl) and the one word essential for a good retreat -RELAX!
This paper crafting art replaces a sad yellow notepad paper on the fridge at Nellies, hardly a fitting greeting for such lovely women that grace our door!

A scalloped acrylic piece is the project base.
A mix of felt, canvas, paper and sticker flowers adds a homey touch.
This fabulous canvas flower is from Heidi Swapp,
the cute flags from October Afternoon, metal bicycle clip-Maya Road
Vintage lace and buttons scream...Nellies Cottage!
Gold hello is from Thickers alphabet

May your hello's bring you joy and the comfort of family and friends who love to see you again and again:) It may depend on how you say hello!
