Giveaway - Word Posters

AND THE WINNER IS .... queenoftheclick! Congratulations! What a cute idea to use them in a classroom. Love it.

I can't believe this Saturday the moving truck takes our stuff to our first house! I'm excited to get there and revamp so I've been brainstorming about some new things that will make a big impact for a small price (Pottery Barn style on a Target budget as they say). In the process I've designed a few posters with my favorite sayings, proverbs, wise words, etc.


The plan is to print a couple of them out to put in big Ikea frames with white mats (one above the fireplace and one hanging in the office maybe?) and then switch them out every few months. They're nothing fancy but I think they will make the space feel bright and modern, and remind me of the important things that are so easy to forget. 

SOOOO.... if you think one of these would look great in your family room or in a small frame on your desk or nightstand here's the deal. I'm giving away the 16x20 printable files for all four posters AND the winner gets to customize one poster to the color of their choice. (smaller sizes available as well)

TO ENTER: Leave a comment on this post with your favorite quote or saying. What words inspire you every day?

For extra entries: Post this sentence... awesome giveaway from Tiny Bird at ... on Twitter, facebook, your blog, etc. and come back here and leave a comment with a link to your post.

Winner will be picked Monday morning, 10am CST.

Love these!! I'm moving in a few weeks, too, and I was thinking about doing this very thing in my new place.

My favorite saying:

What would you do if you knew you could not fail?

P.S. Love you work!


Lauren said...

Great Idea! Good Luck with the move.

Don't count the days. Make the days count.

I am planning on doing a picture wall of my favorite pics of the boys with that saying somewhere in the collage.

Where do you suggest printing them?

"Chin up, chin up
Everybody loves a happy face
Wear it, share it
It'll brighten up the darkest place
Twinkle, sparkle
Let a little sunshine in
You'll be on the right side
Looking at the bright side
Up with your chinny chin chin"

I love the idea of sharing inspiring quotes!

It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.

To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the whole world. (we had this quoted on our wedding favors)

Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest. (mark twain)

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain. (loved this one when we lived in Seattle!)

I love it! i have been wanting to get a whole song sporadically written out in our home but didn't have a clue how to do it, you are my inspiration! the song...

Im trying to be like Jesus
Im following in his ways.
Im trying to love as he did,
in all that i do and say.

At times I am tempted to make a wrong choice, but i try to listen as the still small voice whispers,
"Love one another as Jesus loves you.'

Try to show kindness in all that you do. Be gentle and loving in deed and in thought for these are the things Jesus Taught

Im trying to love my neighbor
Im learning to serve my friends.
I watch for day of gladness when Jesus will come again.

Its kind of long but i think it would be really cool and a good reminder.

Love love love these, Tyan!

Here is a quote I keep on a "sticky note" in my phone:

I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I love today.

And the best one...

You are so talented Tyan! You never cease to amaze me with your creativity. My favorite saying is:

""I don't want to get to the end of my life
and find that I lived just the length of it.
I want ot have
lived the width of it as well."

Miss you all!
