The other day, you know, before Snowmageddon 2014, I bundled up for what I thought would be one of my last days of break for a girls' day! I joined my sweet Maw Maw for pedicures, lunch and shopping and then met two of my most dear friends for lunch and catching up. So good for the soul.
I posted the above [albeit fuzzy] pic on Instagram [@Joidan82] and I really wish you could see my shoes! I found them [on accident] at Journeys for Kids and they have the best leopard detailing on the side. Who knew my size 8.5 foot could fit into girls' sized shoes. Duly noted!
After lunch we stopped at TJ Maxx and Marshall's and found this cute little sign.
I loved it for Theron's room and it wasn't expensive at all. I think it was less than $10. However, the fonts weren't doing it for me.
I snapped a picture of it on my iPhone--seriously, how convenient is life in 2014?!--and decided to make my own version at home.
I've made a lot of copycat images at home on PowerPoint but this time I used PicMonkey. I LOVE PicMonkey. I pay the $4.99 a month for the premium membership and it is totally worth it. I would say I use it just as much, if not more, than I use my photoshop. It's so user friendly and easy to navigate. And, this is not an ad for them--promise!
To make my own version I simply downloaded a free chalkboard background via a google search, and used the available fonts on PicMonkey. I played around with the sizing and saved my image. It only took about an hour or so. I uploaded it to Walgreens and spent less than $3 printing it out in a 5x7.
I used one of the tens of frames I had in the basement and planned on hanging it in Theron's room. But after I saw it, I knew it'd look best smack dab on the TV wall in the living room next to our "This is so the happy place" DIY copycat art. David and I like to think we're 'Young, Wild & Free" but Theron Drake actually lives it. Ha!
I think I need a nice green plant atop that brass Target table for some height!
