Several years ago, I bought a large W at Canton Trade Days. I wasn’t sure exactly what I would do with it, but had been looking for an oversized W for a while.
We, my husband and I, both come from musical families.
As a matter of fact, both of us are musical or were musical. Jake played the Tuba and was drum major for his high school band and for Carolina Crown Drum and Bugle Corps in his younger days.
I took over as the pianist at my church in TX when I was 15. I traveled with Life Action Ministries for a couple of years while I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. I still don’t know, honestly. Since then, I’ve played keys and sang in a variety of praise teams and choirs. I think I’m officially in retirement from all that, though.
Back to the large W I bought in Canton…To incorporate it into my decor, I took an old hymnal that belonged to my grandmother, who was a self-taught, very talented pianist, and decoupaged a variety of hymns all over it. It ended up being a beautiful decor piece in our kitchen 3 houses ago!
My husband’s dad spent about 42 years as a music minister. He had a beautiful baritone voice and had a heart for people like no one else I’ve ever met. He could make a friend everywhere he went! He was also a talker!
After he passed away in 2014, after a long battle with kidney cancer, my mother-in-law gave me the hymnal he used every Sunday morning to lead the choir. The intent was for me to use the pages of that hymnal to create her a hymn covered W. A few years ago, I even bought a large W to tackle this project but ended up using the W I bought on my own mantle. Oops!
So here I am, almost 7 years later and I still haven’t made her W. Well, after today, that’s no longer the case!
We’ll be meeting her at the beach in June to celebrate her birthday. She’s also moving into a new house toward the end of the summer. I’ll hand-deliver this gift to her, that’s no longer a surprise!
This decoupage hymn covered W will be the perfect birthday/housewarming gift for her.
(Debbie, act surprised when I give this to you in person!) 🙂
My intention was to complete this project for a DIY gift round-up last month, but in true Jen Wade fashion, I forgot to order my W and it didn’t arrive until after the challenge was over.
