If you must say it, Say it on the Wall!

A few weeks ago, I was on a site called While He Was Napping. While there, I entered a contest to win $20 worth of vinyl, for use on walls or signs or ceramic tiles or...whatever!

I have been in the homes of other people where I saw nifty quotes on the wall, and have always admired the look and the way it really personalizes a home. People use sayings from favorite authors, or from their wedding vows, or from a favorite song, you name it!  Because the price of a vinyl printing machine is a little cost-prohibitive for me right now, I lusted from afar, and crossed my fingers when entering the contest.

Oh, did I tell you I won?

The contest sponsor was none other than:

I spent a couple of hours over the course of two nights, trying to decide how I wanted to use my gift certificate. I finally decided on these two:

I will adhere this one on either my front door or mailbox. Maybe both!

Of course the vinyl will be my own last name and established date. Since I lack any sort of creativity on my own, I will probably try to make a wooden sign similar to this with my vinyl.

They also allow you to customize any saying that means something to you, in a variety of sizes, fonts, and colors. I picked a personalized saying as well as the above two selections. I was very pleased with the speed with which they processed my order, even though I was a "freebie" customer. They also did a great job of verifying my customized order before sending it out.

Although I didn't select the samples below, they are some of my favorites:

Perfect for Thanksgiving!

I love this one--Shut the Door! (How many times a day do we say this?)

As you can see, the possibilities are only limited by your creativity (which I why I am so glad they provide lots of amazing photos!) Check out their site to see the many options, and to purchase vinyl for your own home or for Christmas projects with meaning. And if you end up spending hours browsing, like I did, don't say I didn't warn you!  *smile*


  1. The title of this post reminds me of a couple Chris's brother knew years ago. They had one wall in their kitchen on which kids could draw or write things and it turned into a wall that others wrote on, too...friends and neighbors signed the wall when visiting. It would be hard to paint over that when moving away.

  2. Congrats!!! You made some great and creative choices. You know how I love the impact of certain words. Boy, would I have a ball with this decorating task!!

    Thanks so much, Randi, for your friendship and prayers! It really means so much to me :)

    Sending hugs and hugs and hugs!!! Kelly

  3. I love the address number and "Welcome" for the front door. And "Shut the Door" is brilliant!

  4. Auntie M: What a fun idea! I would love a wall that had sweet thoughts from all my friends and family. I am storing that one in my brain for future reference.

    Septembermom: Thanks! I saw that you won something this week too! What can we say, we're winners. :) And you are so welcome, Kelly.I hope things are looking up. You'll be in my thoughts.

    Jill@Controlling: Isn't that "Shut the Door" great? I can see printing my mother voice all over the house: "Wipe your toothpaste off the mirror," and "Did you know your dresser drawers close as well as open?"

  5. I love vinyl. I cut "wash down your spit" and put it in the bathroom my kids use because I couldnt stand finding dried toothpaste spit in their sink. It worked for a little while :-(. How is you Nanowrimo coming? I am a little behind. About 18,300 words.

  6. kisatrtle: Wash down your spit--I love it! Vinyl is amazing. Sadly, my NaNoWriMo is not going so well. I'm at 6099 but I can only count 2724 because I started it before November. I had wretched computer problems for the first part of November, so I am hoping I can catch up. Great job on your 18,300 words! Have you done it other years?

  7. You are the winningest person I know!


You won't be paid for it, but at least you'll know that you have contributed intelligence to the universe...
