I am a quote junkie. It's funny how reading a certain quote can bring a smile to your face or jump start the creative wheels for a layout. I love reading through quote books for inspiration. The reason why I made this frame was that I decided it would be a nice touch to have handmade decor throughout our house. Usually I don't do the home decor thing that often but I thought it would be easy to make up little framed quote cards. I picked out a quote and picture that I liked. Set it all up on my computer and then printed it for a stitching template. The stitching did take a long time but I enjoyed it. To me, it's relaxing to sit in front of the TV with the family and stitch away!

Drew Update

He's doing great! Which is a huge relief to me! Looking at him and seeing how active he is you would never guess that just a week ago he was in the hospital. I've finally managed to get some sleep too. Hopefully everything will be back to normal soon!

Thank you so much for all of the kind words!

It's good to hear that Drew is doing much better. That could be very scary!! Great frame too!! I was thinking about stitching a title for a page ans just wasn't sure about it. I may try it on a LO. You're such an inspiration!! LOL Talk to you soon.

I'm so glad to hear that Drew is feeling better and that you are getting some sleep. :)

I love your picture! The only decor in my house is photographs of my loved ones. I had decided years ago it was a waste of money to buy fancy decor when I could decorate with photos of those I love so dearly!

Glad your son is getting better...LOVE the stitching creation. I have a sewing/stitching phobia so I don't do much of it, but love the look. Maybe I'll give it a try....soon.

Fantabulous stitchin'! That's a really cool project. And what a cute 'funny face' pic. Glad he is feeling better.

He's a fighter!!! Just know we have been thinking of you and praying for you here on the home front. I had no idea Drew had to go to the hospital!

Congrats on your fabulous stitching and your shutterfly albums, I posted them on my blog.

Although all of this is minimal compared to the blessing of Drew being 100% again.
