Create Your Own Child’s Monogram Decal

Designer Poll: Which Version is Better?

In honor of the new year, we’ve added a bunch of motivational vinyl wall quotes, many of which have been designed to compliment an exercise room or home gym. This particular quote from Jillian Michaels says: “Unless you puke, faint, or die, keep going.” I created several variations of the design itself, so tell me, which one is your favorite?

And the Winner Is…

The winner of this week’s giveaway for “The Laughter of a Child is the Light of the Home” is Anna Schrimpf, Congratulations!

Color: Chocolate, Size: 28" x 17.25"

She’ll be getting the design in Chocolate, Size 28″ x 17.25″.

I love this design because it really captures what drives my life.  I am lucky enough to be a stay at home mom of two little ones.  Everything I do is for my children.  Life gets so busy and stressful that I sometimes wonder if I am really doing a good job.  But when we have those precious moments of fun and silliness, their sweet laughter is all it takes to make me realize they’re happy and I’m in heaven.  If I win this design I would love to put it up in my family room to remind me that there are some little toes that need to be tickled!”

-Anna Schrimpf

Designer Poll: Which Version is Better?

The most popular wall quote at Wall Written is an homage to home and family. It reads: Home is where love resides, memories are created, friends always belong, laughter never ends. I wanted to create a few more options as far as the look of the design, because I have a feeling that the sentiment of the phrase itself is what appeals to so many. I also added a few variations to the phrase itself, changing some to say “friends are always welcome” and/or “families are forever.”So, which version would you choose?
