Important Wording

I have seen lettering that you gals have put on your walls and was anxious to try my hand at it. Hubby and I were at Hobby Lobby one day and on an end cap I saw the containers at 50% off. This makes them much more affordable and they are on sale quite often. The company is called Once Upon a Wall. Cute name, isn't it?
I searched through the sayings until I found a couple I wanted to put in specific places.
I had a wide area between a large window and our front door and decided this was the right saying for our household. Hubby helped me put it up after I measured it . They are relatively easy to adhere and can be taken down with a hair dryer and not harm your paint.

A little closer look. You should be able to enlarge by clicking on the pic.

I sit in my office, as I'm doing now, and can see the saying perfectly from here, also. A reminder to live up to the words I'm seeing.On the other side of the entrance, which would be coming toward the office, we put these words. We taped them up to see where we wanted to position them.

The final product.

A closer look at the words. I hope people do feel this after they have visited here.

Hope you enjoy your weekend with family, friends and worshiping. Thanks for visiting!

I love your saying!!! Hubby and I put one up also over a group of family pictures. You're right, it was very easy!! Well, I stood there and watched hubby do all the work, but he said it was easy and the result is beautiful. Would love to find your saying and place it somewhere in my house. My father loved that scripture!!!

I couldn't enlarge the office pic, so I don't know what it says....but I love them!

I had taken pictures of my lettering, before, during, after, but then my camera went through the washing machine and I lost the pictures!! I will do a post on the letters as they look now. What a shame, I lost the pictures of my mother's birthday party as well! Oh well, as you can see I have a new camera, RED, so it will stand out and not get mixed up in the tablecloth again!!!

I love wall words and could go wild with them in every room! Those are perfect for your house, because you mean them and live them! We entered practically "strangers" and left close friends!!

Love those words, especially the ones over the front door...perfect way to accessorize the wall and you don't have to figure out how to get up there and dust like you would if it were a piece of artwork!
Hope all goes well with your daughter!
