As we continue to renovate our new home, I am always on the lookout for more cute decorations. I stumbled across this Literary Lovers piece:
Gwen and I didn’t have a very traditional engagement, and definitely had an extremely small wedding (less than 40 people); therefore, we didn’t get many of these cute lovey type items. I’m also a bit of a sap and really do enjoy these types of things. When you combine that with my love of books, this project was really a no brainer. As I read the blog post attached to the pin, I found a template available and downloaded it. I used my regular word processing software to modify the names, fonts, and couples as appropriate for our life. Specifically, we went with a slightly more visual set of couple names and added in some same-sex partners. Once I had it updated to the way I wanted it, I printed the page. Then I went and found an unused 8×10 frame I had hanging out with the photographs and trimmed the 8 1/2″x11″ piece of standard paper to fit. Once I had everything together, I put the piece in the frame and closed the back.
It’ll look very lovely on the dresser, or maybe the bookshelf, when we finish the Master Bedroom renovation.
