Monogrammed stuff is everywhere these days, so I decided to jump on the Monogramming band wagon and get branded! I am making a gallery wall for over the sofa and I wanted to add something different. I was thinking a Monogrammed letter would be cool. Ok, first I have a confession, I originally had a cool letter N from Hobby Lobby that I was going to paint black and put on the wall but in a horrible moment of anger I threw it on the ground and it broke. Sigh. I know. Bad me. I’m working on that and also just trying to keep it real around here. So after I broke the letter I figured I better find a cheap and easy way to make the N. I opened up Google Docs because we don’t have Microsoft word and Google Docs is free. I did it as a drawing instead of a document and I found the font I wanted and made a big letter N to print out. It didn’t print out all nice and colored in, darn.
In a light bulb moment, I grabbed a black Sharpie marker and colored in the N and then cut it out. It actually doesn’t look half bad.
My husband is a big music kind of guy, he plays about 70 different instruments and also plays by ear. You know the person that everyone is jealous of their musical ear? That’s my husband! I love listening to him play and hope that some of our children inherit his musical talent! I found a great printable at Graphics Fairy Queen .
So here’s my monogrammed picture for the gallery wall, one 8×10 frame that I already had at home, a printed off sheet of music and a sharpie colored black N. Can’t wait to get the wall done! Not bad, huh?
