{ Eat Fresh } Kitchen Valance

Hello…I hope everybody had a great Christmas.  Now I am ready for a refresh of my home, starting in the kitchen. One thing I really want to do for my family (and myself) in this new year is to “eat fresh”.  I am not one that loves to grocery shop but eating fruits and vegetables requires a little more effort than I have been giving in that area. So I am planning to make visits to the produce department and farmers markets part of my daily routine this year.

So with that goal in mind, I made a small reminder to myself right where I will see it.
I used inexpensive muslin fabric folded in half and ironed. Folded the edges in about an inch and used some fabric fusion to keep them in place. With a sharpie marker I wrote “fresh” in my own ‘imperfect’ cursive. Then placed the word EAT slightly above with simple stencils and traced each letter. Then filled those letters in with the black sharpie marker.
I like when kitchens have the single word EAT in them but I don’t need to be reminded to just EAT – I was thinking at one point to put DON”T EAT in my kitchen.

The valance is simple and light.
With my New Years Resolution written all over it….
EAT fresh
My little boy asked me “Is this for Subway?”
