DIY Gratitude Linen

Our lives are busy. They are sometimes stressful. It takes conscious effort to stop and smell those roses. We appointed October a month to focus on gratitude, an issue that is of great importance to recovery. 
We chose a quote that got to the very heart of this issue and exercised a little creativity by hand painting it on linen to make a thoughtful wall hanging.
We began by lightly penciling in the stenciled message with a ruler. This ensures the placement is as you want it, and also that the lines are straight. 

This way, when it comes time to paint, it goes by quickly because you have a guide.

Take your time and enjoy this peaceful activity.

You’ll be surprised how good it feels to have such an uplifting message to read everyday. And maybe, just maybe, you will take your own advice and live a good life. A sober life.
