Suggestions Needed

I just ordered vinyl to put quote cutouts on my wall - I saw a ton in Salado a few weeks ago, and they were all like $50, but I can get some vinyl for $10 and make them myself with a borrowed Cricut, so that's what I'm going to do. But now I can't decide what to put up there... My room is mostly windows, so there's not just a ton of space, but I have all of the walls above the windows to work with. I'm looking for non-cliched, fairly short, inspirational quotes. I'm sort of tempted to put "I sound my barbaric yawp" on the main wall, because it tickles me to think of my little crafts as my own personal barbaric yawp, but I'm open to hearing other suggestions.

Per Casey's suggestion (thanks, Casey!), a photo of the room... I wasn't really thinking about the area over the windows when I took the picture, but you can see what's up there.



And this doesn't show the space over the windows, but you can see more of what the room looks like:

I'm having WAY too much fun with this. And I think the heathens have noticed my absence, I must go. :(

Those are awesome. I love the Alice one especially.

Casey said...

I like the Alice one. Can you show a picture of the room for inspiration?

Bonnie said...

Good idea! I'll add it to the main post.

That Dryden quote is beautiful! I love love love it.

I think you HAVE to use the Dryden quote, that is just beautiful. I love that room by the way and am totally jealous just so you know.

I think quotes above the windows are such a great idea, what a perfect place for them! I can't wiat to see what you decide on and how it looks

Made me think of you when I read it. Slightly altered, but it's from Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, which, incidentally, you need to read like yesterday.

I think I'm going to need to buy more vinyl... I love so many of these. I do have four walls to work with...
