I was not made to be Ordinary

Oh how I love this saying, I was not made to be ORDINARY.  The entire theme of my blog is finding your style, making it your own and filling your home with things that speak to YOU.  The very first step to achieving that in your home is realizing that you were not made to be ordinary or regular or fade into the crowd!

I have long wanted to make a decor piece that said something along these lines and today is the day!  I am loving the simple encouraging words paired against a clean simple wooden plaque from Oriental Trading.

I also loved the quality and thickness of the wood pieces and they came in a package of six, so you can make a plaque for yourself and five friends!!

Not Ordinary Plaque

This month we are working with rickrack and I loved the color combinations I was able to create in my project.
