Hello lovelies! I have a confession to make. I am officially obsessed…with script fonts. And chalkboard art. No matter how hard I try, when it comes time to decorate my mantel for the season, I end up back in the same place – with some scripty-font-chalkboard art in my grandmother’s old window. It’s just such a perfect combo! Gah! #sorrynotsorry
Now that spring is officially here I thought I’d share my latest creation using this Ernest Hemingway quote from A Moveable Feast.
“When spring came…there were no problems except where to be happiest.”
Amen, brother! The glimpses of sunshine and rising temperatures are making me swoon! At last, we can throw open the doors and get outside without so much fuss. Mamas, you know what I mean? With so many tiny ones in the house it can be hard to get outdoors in the colder, winter months. I’m pretty sure it takes me 2,357 minutes to get them all dressed in their snow gear for about 2 minutes outside before the first meltdown. Don’t get me wrong – it’s totally worth it! But it’s an event to say the least. While our family makes it a priority to get outside no matter what, these spring days make it much easier to send them running about in tee-shirts and rain boots. Funny story: Our 3rd born tromped through the woods wearing just that the other day. Literally *just* that. He had an unfortunate incident with a puddle and afterward refused to wear his pants. Eeek! Haha!
And here is that gorgeous scripty-font-chalkboard art printable I mentioned earlier. It’s all yours for FREE, my dears! If you like what you see, subscribe to our mailing list and follow along on social media!
Once you’ve downloaded and saved the chalkboard art printable you can email it or take it on a thumb drive to any office supply store and ask for them to print it as an engineer print. I had this 18×24 sign printed for $2.41 at FedEx! Plus, they’ll even trim the edges for you. I “float” it in my window frame using tiny squares of good ol’ Scotch tape in the corners.
