Dream it, Wish it, Do it

So following on from my post about throwing things out, decluttering and re-vamping things around my office I thought I would recycle some cardboard I was going to throw out and an old frame.

It's so simple that the steps should be a given... however I shall tell you my approach. The outcome is so rewarding when the project is so quick.

1// Either buy some cardboard or recycle some of that scrap you might be about to throw out. Go on save a tree. Measure it to the FULL size of the frame and then cut it to size.

2// Pick your favourite quote, lyrics etc and write it down. The messier the better. It's a kind of "in the moment piece", so go crazy, we don't want any of that in between the lines shit. Also, if we did we'd go and by a print.

3// Blu-tac the cardboard to the frame, and then the frame to the wall. It's a nicer approach than hammering nails in to the wall.

4// Voila. 2 minute project, which can give you endless hours of joy and inspiration for those days you really need it.

5// If you get sick of that quote why not take another moment in a month or so and replace it with a new one, or another cute idea would be a letter or drawing from a loved one (after all they're the words/ illustrations that should be on show)
