framed quotes I did last year here, but I still love it.
Ever since my husband and I got married 10 years ago (wow time goes by quickly), I have wanted to frame a few things that reminded me of our wedding day to put in our bedroom. This is the one place in our house that is just for us; a place for things that I don't need to explain what they means or share why I framed what I did. A place that I can put special things that only have meaning to the two of us and can make us smile and remember every time we look at them.
I will only share my first project now (the other might come later this month if I can do it with $0).
I have always loved the readings from our wedding ceremony. We were able to work with our priest to create our own ceremony by selecting all the readings. I immediately fell in love with the passage from 1st Corinthians 13:4-7. For those of you who think you are not familiar with it, I can guarantee you have heard it.
It goes something like this (there are slight variances depending on the version)
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves."
Author: 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
As mentioned previously with my Celtic heart knot project, we love Celtic knots. We love them so much my husband's wedding ring has a continuous knot around the entire band. So when I started to design this quote, I knew I wanted it to have a Celtic influence.
I downloaded a few free Celtic fonts from one of those font websites. I used CelticEels for the LOVE letters and Shrewsbury for the text.
Using Publisher (you could easily do this in Word too) I created two text boxes, one with LOVE and the other with the remaining text.I then rotated the 'LOVE' box by 90 degrees so that is was on the side of the passage.
Here is attempt #1 (don't mind the different colors on the word LOVE; I was trying to make it better). I really didn't like the pattern or the blue paper. Fail.
Have any of you come up with $0 ideas of your own? Are we ready to have a $0 Budget link party? If anyone is interested I can do one every Friday or every other Friday...just say the word :)
I will have a great guest post tomorrow so be sure to stop by.
