Remember this post?
And how I decided that my mantra for getting through these last years of school would be "Keep Calm and Carry On"?
I'm trying to become immersed in that.
It's hard after having to fight a three year old to take a bath because he's so beyond tired.
Anyways... I'm trying to keep reminders around me... I'm actually scouring Etsy to find a necklace with it so I can carry it around. I've found tons. :)
Wanna know some fun facts about "Keep Calm and Carry On"?
Of course you do.
*It was originally produced in 1939 by the British government at the beginning of World War II but was actually NEVER used.
*It was only intended to be used as a last case scenario in case the Nazis invaded Britian.
*Two and a half million copies were printed but only a few were distributed.
*The poster was the third in a series of three that included the sayings "Your courage, your cheerfulness, your resolution will bring us victory" and "Freedom is in Peril"
*In 2000, the slogan was rediscovered in a second-hand bookshop and eventually redistributed
*The slogan 'Now panic and freak out' has also made it's rounds in debut.
On to the project...
So I started with a frame I had on hand from Hobby Lobby and hopped on the computer to type the saying up in a font I liked
I like the simple block font that it's usually in:
Isn't the frame pretty?
I think I intended to use it for wedding pictures... oops.
So I got the font and cut out with my exacto knife:
I love burlap.
I just popped it into the frame:
I love the fabulous reminder it gives.
I'm just in love with this saying.
I'm really excited/nervous about classes starting on Monday.
However, I got a supply list for my therepeutic activities class that involved going to Hobby Lobby.
Very good sign.
