 Sometimes projects are really hard and time consuming.

But this project – Printer’s Box Word Art – was as easy as it gets.

The only time consuming part was figuring out the easiest way to do it.

I have been working on another gallery wall – this time in our office.  One little corner is just about done.  There is lots of bright color and pattern so I want to contrast the color with graphic black and white.  And, I have a things for surrounding myself with words.  Gentle reminders throughout the day.  I have this belief that there will be times when the words we surround ourselves with will be just what we need.

So, I took a vintage printer’s box and spray painted it black.  But really any color will do.  Or, you could just leave it natural wood.

And then I used scrapbook letter stickers to spell out the words.

And then, I hung it on the wall.

Yup, it is that simple.

“Do Small Things with Great Love” is a quote by one of my heroes, Mother Theresa.

So many wise words came from her mouth and so many wise deeds came from her hands.

I am not sure who exactly said “Love what you do”.  Do you know?

But just for fun and just in case it is exactly what you need to read today, here are some other wise words from Mother Theresa.

“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.”
Mother Teresa

Laura, I am sorry to have to do this, but I am going to have to copy you on this one. Is that okay? I’ll link back here of course so everyone is sure that I wasn’t the genius behind this idea. Also, can I use one picture (with link) from this post to show your original idea? Because I HAVE to do this for my craft room. LOVE. ~Angela~
