Eat The Marshmallow ~ Positive Affirmation Wall Hanging

I was so excited to be partnered with @kittykill for the Positive Affirmations Swap :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes: I went with her own affirmation, “Eat the marshmallow”

I bought digital paper (a first for me) from MaebyWildPrintables on Etsy, I thought the sprinkles and watercolor circles fit well with the quote :heart: And because I had a plethora of time away from my craft space I filled it with making fabric beads from @Magpie’s zoom class :kissing_heart: When I was assembling I thought it needed something between the beads but nothing was working :stuck_out_tongue: so I embraced the scrappy and used fabric bits to fill the spaces between beads. :grin:

This was fun to put together and I’m quite happy with the overall look :slight_smile:

And here’s an explanation of the affirmation, stolen from the source :wink:

Beautiful, especially the fabric beads. I always wondered what her saying meant.

Ha-- I read something recently talking about the marshmallow experiment, and pointing out that the kids who didn’t eat the marshmallow mostly spent their time poking it or licking it or trying to build things with it, and the whole adult concept of it being about willpower is nonsense.

There was also a protractor/compass involved… and some math… and c-a-r-e-f-u-l cutting :grimacing: I got a little crazy with overthinking & trying to make it perfect :sweat_smile: I got all the paper bits as suuuuper precise as I was able… them went crazy scrappy with the fabric and lace! :joy:
