Where There's A Will...

There's A Yard Stick!
I was kicking myself for doing this southern Christmas tree on Canvas board instead of a nicer real canvas.. How should I hang this oddly shaped piece of prim Christmas art? And then I saw my trusty yard stick. An icon of many a household. Used for everything from a spanking tool in some people's homes to an extension to place tape up high in a classroom.

Well my yard stick is now a piece of the art. What better way to both mount the art together and operate as the mechanism to be hung by. And it just looks so darn country/prim cute!
I'd like to sale it, my hubby wants us to keep it. What do y'all say?

What a great idea! I'm like you, I will sell any of my artwork that isn't screwed down. My husband on the other hand gets attached. I would love to come have some hot cocoa with you and help out if I wasn't weren't so swamped right now.

You could sell and and make another one. And you can get more yardsticks, too.
