I’m a words girl. I get inspired by quotes and clever phrases.  I needed a little inspo, so yesterday I decided to use thirty minutes to come up with a wall hanging for my office. I wanted something that would remind me to put my head down and grind- but also to have fun. I looked at a bunch of quotes, but realized that they were too hard to read, or too long, or too serious, or just not right. So I went simple. I brainstormed single words that if I looked at on my wall I would react to. The winner was  “HUSTLE”. Maybe it’s from years of high school sports, or maybe from too many rap songs, but I love the word hustle. To me it’s about working hard, with a little swagger.  If all else fails, if you are hustling, stuff gets done. Put your head down and do the work, instead of stressing over the details. So I got hustling and made this cute little DIY sign.

^ I used stickers on 8 x 10 canvas to write out my word. Make sure the stickers are down super tight, and using thick stickers makes it easier to remove them after you paint them.
