A New Post

I’m a horrible blogger… I should be grounded and sent to my room, (Please!) But I will try to flip over a new page and do a better job, there just never seem to be enough hours in the day to get all I want done. Plus read what ever book I’m immersed in.

The house is now officially unpacked! Yay, now on to the fun part… decorating it! Which plays a part in today’s post. My kitchen has soffits… (I do miss open space above the upper cabinets, but it is what it is.) I thought about antique or vintage kitchen gadgets, but apparently so had everybody else. Because they are impossible to find. Next… my much-loved and hidden for the last couple of years, apple plaques, nope to big, I wanted something fun and easy and not red!  Light dawns, I have stenciled quotes and such above the cabinets in a few places,   this time I didn’t want a whole quote per se…. nor did I want to use stencils… I love the look of mixed fonts. Sooo off to PicMonkey, I just love PicMonkey. There I type in a bunch of random cutesy short little quotes. Printed them out. Now how to get them on the wall, pencil. That’ll work and it did as you’ll see.

See mixed fonts, cutesy saying what’s not to like?

Color the back of said quote with a pencil, make sure you cover all the words, top to bottom.

Tape it to the wall where you want it, with another pencil trace the words

Fill in with paint, and look a fun border like deal.

What’d you think?



Took an afternoon to do, a couple of artist brushes, and some craft paint that I had on hand. I like, the other upside is when I get bored, a quick coat of paint… and a new canvas appears.

What do you do with the space above your cabinets?     Till next time, XOXO
