Short and Sweet - Easy Wall Art...

In my last post of 2018, I mentioned some changes that I wanted to make on the blog.  One of those was the "Life Hacks" series...I hope you are enjoying it.

Another feature I am adding to my blog is called "Short and Sweet".
It will be a post of 2-3 paragraphs with 1-3 photos once a month.  It will not take up alot of your time but still show you something from around the house, a quick recipe or something cute I've found while out and about.  I would like to do this with other bloggers to make it sort of a "blog hop", so if you a blogger and are interested, let me know. :-)

For the first in this series, I want to show you how easy and inexpensive it is to have cute wall art.
I wanted something for one of my guest bedrooms, but didn't want anything oversized or another "saying" to hang on the wall.  Lauren, at Bless'er House, has some amazing images suitable for printing and hanging.  I looked around her site, found what I wanted and downloaded the file.   I saved the images onto a thumb drive, took them to Office Max and had them printed on cardstock to the size I needed.  I purchased some inexpensive frames from Michael's (when they had a buy one get one free), cut the images to fit the frame and hung them on the wall.

Short and sweet, easy, peasy!

  2. The art looks fantastic there and is, indeed, sweet! I like the idea of your "Short and Sweet" posts, because I am a person who can never get through reading all of the blogs, etc. that I could like to. Keeping it simple and short really encourages people like me. Still loving the look of your blog these days!

    1. Thank you so much! It was easy and inexpensive! Since I change my mind on wall art all the time, I like the inexpensive route. 😊 I think I am going to enjoy the “short and sweet” also. It takes so much time to pull a post together and I know people don’t have time to read long posts all the time either, so I’m hoping this will be a good alternative…for writing and reading! 😊 I’m really trying to keep my blog streamlined! I love the new look of yours also…in case I forgot to mention in my previous comments. Love and hugs sweet friend!

  3. The prints are just perfect for the guest room. I do like the short and sweet concept. You get to the point (not that I don't like to hear what you have to say!). Enjoy your weekend. It's going to be a nasty one around here. -5 degrees Sunday night... We're headed to the store but you know folks will be in there buying bread and milk. xoxo

    1. Thank you so much! I was very glad that I found them on Lauren's website.

      I like the concept also...it's easier to write and doesn't take up a lot of your time reading it. I like cold weather, but -5 is a bit much for me...and yes, I'm sure the store was a madhouse! I don't want bread, milk and eggs during a snowstorm...I want hotdogs, French fries, potato chips, etc. Stay warm and have a great weekend! Love and hugs!

  5. Love this idea and it looks great on your wall! I have a couple of frames around the house that I switch printables for the seasons. There are a few years worth now. :)

    1. Thank you so much! I was really glad that I found a treasure trove of printables on several other bloggers’ sites. I like switching the prints around also and this makes it so much easier and so much less expensive! Love and hugs!

    1. Thank you! I have my photos printed and hanging in other rooms of the house also...it makes for easy/inexpensive wall art. I change them out periodically and just reuse the frames. Love and hugs!

  8. Hi Benita! This would be sooo fun and I do like a short post. My post today was short with five pics, I think. Shared a few of the new house we are now in escrow on... Yeah!!! So excited to get back indoors and not have a washer make me nauseated when it goes into the spin cycle! Lol... ;0)

    Count me in for "Short and Sweet,"
    Hugs,
    Barb :)
