Personalized Letters

26 Jul

The English language is an amazing thing!  All the letters and the different combinations and how we communicate it just amazes me. I am someone who can really appreciate letters since I am a horrible speller, but I feel I make up for it by the amount of talking I do. Anyways, I have digressed.  I’ve been wanting to get our initials L & C in wooden letters to put on our mantel. I love the ones from Anthroplogie below, but $18.00 a letter just seems a little steep.

So I shopped around and found this great site for wooden letters.  You can customize the size and font. This was exactly what I was looking for.

Here are my unfished letters when they came in.

I picked up a smoke gray spray paint for both letters and gave them just a quick spray. Here are my final letters, I still need to sand them a little, to distress them but I was pretty excited how they turned out so I wanted to share.

To become inspired!  Sounds easy, right? Lately I have been trying to figure out what inspires me and what draws out my creativity. It’s not as easy as it sounds! There is no formula that I can figure out, and maybe that is the point.  We aren’t supposed to be able to debunk creativity! It certainly helps by surrounding yourself with colorful things and colorful people. You know how sometimes you come across a photo and it moves and inspires you? Here are a few natural and man-made that are my current muses. I hope you are all having an inspirational day!

And of course my favorite animal ever!

One thing that is not helping my creativity is my boring office.  My friend over at The Spring Tulip has some great ideas in creating a colorful work environment.  You should check her out!
