Keep Calm and....

Check out this cool site:

Keep Calm-O-Matic

These "Keep Calm" signs have gained in majoy popularity, but the primary one I've seen is "Keep Calm and Carry On", which isn't particulary inspiring...kind of a whole "pull yourself up by your boots straps". I prefer these signs that were create over at Family Brings Joy These are all lines from hymns that bring actual calm as your family walks out the door each day. She used the above "Calm-o-matic" sign generator to create her signs...easy peasy! She (at Family Brings Joy) talks about, in her post, how she got the frames from the dollar store, then just sanded down the edges to distress the frames. Love it!

Keep Calm and Give it a Try!

Lauren, thank you for this post. It is so funny. I never thought this post would be so "popular." Sometimes I spend a LOT of time on a post and don't receive any feedback at all. It was really cool that the creator of the Calm-o-matic dropped by my blog and said Thank You. It is always nice to be recognized. Honestly, sometimes recognition can be better than monetary compensation. Don't you think? It was interesting to read the history behind the sign on the site as well. I am completely honored you chose to highlight this and I thank you very much! Have a super day, Lauren! :D Love your blog too!

Thanks, Shan. Yes, I completely agree about just needing to be recognized and that being better than a paycheck sometimes. :) Thanks for checking out my blog. I love yours, too. How long have you been blogging? It looks like we've been "at it" for a similar amount of time?! Thanks again!
