The BIG Idea!

A few weeks back I mentioned on Facebook that I had a big idea. The problem with big ideas around here is implementing them. Soooo many ideas, not enough time! Except, I LOVED this idea. I loved it a lot. I loved it enough to get it done and show you because I think you will all love it too.

I'll be honest. There are a select few people in my life that have had a peek at this new, wonderful idea and THEY all LOVED it as well.

I know, I know.....get to it already!

As you know, the last item we introduced was the Wooden Monogram Letters. Monograms are popular. I started thinking of ways to make the monogram idea a little more interesting. Why just do the same monograms as everyone else? Then the idea came to me and here it is for all to see.

I struggled with what to call them so for now they're just Initial Name Letters. Kind or boring but I guess, that's what they are after all.

These are BIG. Not everyone-is-talking-about-them big, although I hope that's the case soon, but big as in large.  We cut a large, 24" high letter out of 1/2" thick Baltic Birch (no MDF here!) in the classic, Times New Roman Font. This letter can be finished in a variety of finishes from solid colour to rustic to a shabby chic damask. More finishes will be available in the future.  THEN we cut the name 10" high in a gorgeous, cursive font and attached it to the larger letter. Are they fantastic or what?

The possibilities are endless! My sneak peekers have all been raving about family  names. Last names done instead of a child's name and then the established year added. What a great wedding gift for a new couple or Christmas or anniversary gift for someone who's been married for years!

I love feedback so tell me what you think and don't forget to pin these babies!

New! Monogram Wall Letter Sets

Finally! I've had enough requests for them and after realizing that they're  hard to come by here in Canada I decided it's probably high time to develop a line of Monogram Wooden letters. I carefully went through pages and pages of font styles and picked three that I thought were gorgeous, worked well for decor and were different from others out there.

Monogram Wooden Letters are all the rage! Big and bold they sure make a statement. Fantastic for weddings, family photo walls and nurseries they are classic and will give you the longevity you look for when shopping for home decor. These wooden monogram letters will be sure to last through the years and grow with your child regardless of room theme changes!

At this time we're offering them in four different finishes: Solid colours, Dazzling Metallics, Glitter and Unpainted for the Do-It-Yourselfers. Soon we will be adding rustic, shabby chic and two-colour monograms so stay tuned and make sure you follow our Facebook page for updates!

Each monogram has one large letter that is 28" high in a fancy font of your choice. The smaller letters are in the classic Times New Roman font and are 8" in height. Cut from 1/2" thick  Baltic Birch when you purchase our wooden letters you are getting top quality. No MDF here! Every letter is painstakingly hand sanded, hand painted and finished with a protective spray. 

As the Monograms are a larger item we found the best way to hang them is with two-sided tape. This gives a nice, flush mounting with the wall and provides a sturdy connection to assure nothing will fall off. If you wish to have hooks instead you can choose so in the options when purchasing your piece of art.
