Little Project....

As I was redoing my office space I needed to fill a wall. Being an impatient person by nature & wanting to complete my room I thought of something in black frames that would look clean & crisp next to the white dove or dove white(always get the exact wording of this benjamin moore paint that I love mixed up.) anyway, I came up with an inexpensive yet sentimental project that would fill my wall. I simply went into microsoft word & played with fonts & sizes of fonts until I came up with the style & size that would look great inside an 11X14 black frame. I made note of the style & size of font but can't locate it right now. Just go in & play until you have something you love. It can be anything you think of- I decided to do a collage of numbers that are my kids & grandkids birthdays. So simple, so inexpensive & looks great! I chose a black frame with a white mat & simply placed the print out (on regular copy/printer paper by the way) inside & placed another piece of white paper on the back to make it more opaque. VOILA! Instant gratification. The only hard part was measuring. I always try to skip this important step & try to eyeball the exact locations. My super practical hubby always talks me out of doing this & measures for me-he is the best! We hung them & I love the way they look & the sentimental meaning behind them. Still adding to the office & still waiting for my sisal bound rug. Hope you are busy doing projects that put a smile on your face. I am going thru the whole house repainting & sprucing rooms up for a much anticipate SPRING. Have a wonderful rest of the week! xo


  1. Very nice Chris~ love the crisp clean look!
    Happy early spring!

  2. Love, love, love the idea... you are so talented. The frames look fantastic. Did I say I love it yet? LOL I hope all is well with you, I bet you cannot wait for spring...I know I cant. I moved to Athens Georgia and its been really warm here for the most part anyway, starting to see lots of flowers and trees blooming. If you get the time stop by my blog I posted pictures of my wedding. Miss talking to you.

  3. Love this simple clean idea yet still french and feminine. Do you know what the font is? I do not have anything like this in Word. The closest I could find was French Script but not similar at all! Thanks! And yes, I too am amazed how my style has changed over the years from the pink and roses to the cleaner more simple design of khaki, black and white...who would have thought!
