Great Ideas — Typography Projects {1}

Hey all you TT&J-ers out there!  
I’m just doing some blog-sitting this weekend while Jen’s off enjoying her London adventure.  {Are you as jealous as I am?}

My 3 Monsters is my humble little on-line abode where I blog about fixing up my humble little real-life abode, my crafty endeavors, and the challenges and joys of raising three super-fun {and a little bit wacky}kids with my BFF husband.  I also sell cupcakes with my 13 year old daughter, paint murals, and run an Etsy shop called Suburban graffiti. I’m a long-time fan of the Weekend Wrap-Up Party, so I am honored to have this opportunity to spotlight some of my favorite this week.

I love words and meaningful quotes and typography in any form.  My family laughs sometimes that all we have are words on our walls, not pictures.  I just can’t help myself!  

Look at all these lovelies this week:

I adore these kitchen towel pillows from The 36th Avenue.  The color combination, the sentiment . . . perfection.  These are going straight to the top of my “must-make” list.
This vacation memories keepsake frame from Echoes of Laughter is stunning.  Love that quote in there.
Love this beachy-chic DIY wall art from Love of Family and Home.
Beautiful inspirational printable from Taidye Original.
I told you I was a fan of typography, didn’t I?  This summer sign from Once Upon a {Craft} Time is cute as can be!
Even the printing on the selvedge edge of fabric can be pretty cool.  Check out this awesome bag from Diary of a Crafty Lady.
This cereal specimen chart from Simple Simon & Company made me laugh out loud.  This would be  real conversation piece in our home!
This sentimental Father’s Day gift from Something Created Every Day is really touching.  {Do I still have time to whip one up?!?}
Fun outdoor chair makeover with burlap coffee sacks at Megan Brooke Handmade.
I’m loving the look of this old window makeover at Crafty, Scrappy, Happy right now.  The meaningful quote, the shells printed on book pages, the chippy old table . . . *sigh* . . . Too lovely.
Here’s another goody from Crafty, Scrappy, Happy.  She’s cornering the market on sentimental, inspirational typography this week.  The story of this picture got me a little bit choked up.  Beautiful.
My heart went pitter-patter when I saw this chalkboard project from Charcoal and Crayons.  Stencils.  On a chalkboard.  Genius!
You can even “typogrify” your baby.  How fun are these onesies from Craftinated?!
Pretty ruffled and rosette-ed Welcome pillow from The Little Things.
This Proverbs printable over at Wool & Flax . . . and other Beeswax is ever-so classy.
And how about this keyboard clutch from See Kate Sew?  Too cute for words!
Whew – I don’t know how Jen does this every weekend!  There are soooo many awesome projects linked up, it was almost impossible to narrow them down.  I’m feeling really lucky that I get to post some more of my favorites tomorrow, because there are a ton more out there that I love.  Have a great Saturday, folks!

    I knew you would spotlight those pillows! I fell in love with them the minute I saw them too! Funny I saw a beach bag with a bike on it the other day and I had a aha moment and thought pillow, but this is much cuter than what popped in my head. I LOVE everything about it and it would be PERFECT in my home too! I hope she doesn't mind copy cats! 😉
