home improvements

We are moving soon and therefore have been somewhat renovating the house we are moving too. I have some good tips on home improvements and some DIY projects but I need pictures to show you and just haven't taken those yet, so that will have to be a later post.

However, I was thinking I wanted to do something like one of these...


in the aeroplane over the sea
The top picture retails for about $400 which I am unwilling to pay and the second was a DIY project.
If I did the first one, I was thinking of the lyrics

"Whenever I see your smiling face, I have to smile myself because I love you" - Could be because we are listening to alot of James Taylor and Jimmy Buffett lately
or for the second picture which is a whole song, I was thinking of "The Way I Am" by Ingrid Michaelson with the lyrics as follows...

If you were falling, then I would catch you
You need a light, I'd find a match

Cuz I love the way you say good morning
And you take me the way I am

If you are chilly, here take my sweater
Your head is aching; I'll make it better

Cuz I love the way you call me baby
And you take me the way I am

I'd buy you Rogaine when you start losing all your hair
Sew on patches to all you tear

Cuz I love you more than I could ever promise
And you take me the way I am
You take me the way I am
You take me the way I am

So, my question to all you blog readers - good idea? and if so, any other ideas for songs - I am completely open to more possibilities!

I agree...

Too much work on the second one. The first one looks like felt cut out letters. Do that one

How about just doing "when I see your smiling face."

how about...
Flowers in the garden
Laughter in the hall
Children in the park

of course there are a ton of good Toad lyrics

SO I like both, but I really like the more time consuming one. I love that song. I think it would be way cute, but the question is, how much time do you have?

I agree-short and sweet. I didn't know that you were moving. Can't wait to see what you are doing. Also-I laughed out loud about the ying yang comment. Too funny!!!
Post some pics of the house-I WANT to see what you are dong. I am always looking for a good copying project!!
