Adventures in Pinterest: I Love You Because...

100% my favorite thing about getting our new place is doing all the projects I've pinned on Pinterest.  I'm slowly getting around to them (Christmas is putting a bit of a cramp in my style, but y'all can expect some homemade gifts coming out the  Stress Casey house this year, for sure!), and I am just loving the results!

I've seen a few versions of this guy floating around on Pinterest


Sarah, at Life {Sweet} Life, is amazing!  First of all she uses fleur de lis in her decor (enough to make us best friends already), and she shared multiple colors of the awesome printable she used for this project!  Totally sweet, right?

When I went to put this project together, I was confronted with the fact that I don't have all that much surface space.  Trying to cut down on clutter, and I just simply don't have much of it in my home.  So where better to put this inspirational little ongoing love note than the beating heart of the home - the refrigerator. 

So one could say I actually merged two Pins into one with this project.

Inspiration:


My Results:

True story, HH is up before me every single morning and crawling into bed hours after I've fallen asleep most nights.


Dying to know what's in that other frame?  Your wish = my command.



I love this little project, and I Think my favorite part is the chevron print.  I am thinking the frame could use just a little bit more oomph to really make my fridge look darling.  Maybe one of the burlap flowers sweet Stephanie added to her charger chalkboard?  Who knows!

I love it!! I'm actually making one of these for my mom for Christmas :-) I think I'll be pulling it together tomorrow night at my "craft date" so hopefully it'll be a success and I can post it on the blog next week.

OMG...the "we moved!" pic is PRECIOUS! I'm trying to plot a way to get a pic like that on our Christmas card this year! SO SO SO cute!!

Oh-and the dry erase memo board is just precious! I love little notes from the man-candy! :)
