Dates to Remember

I can’t take credit for this idea.  I saw it on Pinterest!   If you haven’t realized my love for Pinterest yet…let me tell you, I LOVE PINTEREST!  You can follow me and all my pins here or you can click on the “P beaker = {Follow Me on Pinterest}” button in my sidebar (more on those fun buttons later!)    If you need an invite to this awesome site, send me your email address and I will be happy to invite you!  You can leave your address in a comment below or email it to me at thatswhatchesaid {at} hotmail {dot} com.

So here is my pin from Pinterest:

She made hers with a Silhouette, but like I talked about before, I don’t have all the fun gadgets yet, so I made mine on PSE and printed it off using a Winkflash Daily Deal.  If you don’t have access to Photoshop, you could also use Picnik, which is a free software.  You can choose which ever dates are important to you!  I love this idea.  It’s abstract but personal all at the same time.  I love multi tasking 🙂    Here is mine! 

And here is what it looks like printed, framed and hung on the wall. 

I will upgrade to a larger, matted frame soon, but for now this is what I had on hand and I love it.  Now my husband has no reason to forget our important dates!  We’ll see if it works!

Let Him Sleep…

I simply adore the wall vinyl that reads “Let Him Sleep, For When He Wakes, He Will Move Mountains”  However we are renting so I don’t want to purchase one, only to have to throw it away later on.  Most say they are repositionable but not reusable, and some say may cause damage to textured walls or not adhere to textured walls well.   Not only are we renting, we have textured walls.  So, I did as any DIY’er would do…I made my own on PSE and framed it for Ryan’s room!

You can remember how I rambled on about not having decorated a nursery and might remember me saying  I would do the best I could with the renting and budget situation.  I am happy with it!  I used a daily deal from Winkflash and got the 8×10 print for $0.75!  (I actually ordered 3 separate 8×10’s and (1) 5×7 and with shipping my total was only three dollars and some change!  Rock on!  I used a frame I already had with a matte I already had, to size it down to 8 x 10.

I am using Orange, Turquoise, Yellow and Lime Green for color inspirations for Ryan’s room.  We have a dark beige color on the walls so I chose to go bright with the background.  I also changed up the colors on a few copies, so if the colors work for you, feel free to print them out for free!!  Just click on the photos below and download away!  If you like this printable, think about subscribing to my blog or following my page on facebook!  You never know, I might have something else you will like also! 🙂
