Q is for Quotes

You didn't think I could do it did you? When you read about me doing Decorating A-Z you thought, "Sounds like a neat idea, but I bet she has to skip Q, X, and Z."
Well, little naysayer, here I am:

Q Week and I have a post!

I love a good quote. In most of my papers (for my undergrad and master's classes) I manage to squeeze in a good quote. I sprinkle them into conversation from time to time.
One I used just the other day:

"If you don't have something nice to say...come sit by me."
spoken by the one and only Truvy from Steel Magnolias.
(she and I must be kindred spirits. I am sleeping in her beauty shop!)

I'm not completely sass and meanness. I also like to use quotes to inspire from time to time.

I have been known to recite "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again." when I want my students or my kids to keep going.
(That might qualify as sass and/or meanness, depends on your point of view I suppose!)

I could fill my classroom with quotes, if I had a cricut
(cricket? criket? how in the hey diddle DO you spell that thing) I probably would.

One of my favorites, I couldn't wait on a cricut for, I painted on a canvas and it hangs in my classroom:

Another favorite quote is painted on the wall in Little Man's room:

You can see how I did it here

I also love vinyl and have been looking for the perfect quote for my entryway. I was going to paint the verse about the Lord knowing our comings and goings, but I decided to search for the same quote in vinyl.
It took some time, but I found it and am now anxiously awaiting its arrival.
This is not my entryway, this is the picture from the website.

It was less than $20! I found it at
Granted I would have preferred the "non-KJV" version, but I still love it.

Stephanie over at Under the Table and Dreaming is having a great give-away from Wonderfully Wordy. I am going to link up to her because I think this post fits in perfectly! Wish me luck, cause I already have an idea where to put the prize!!

It is also time for Ms. Jenny and her Alphabe-Thursday.

I'm not making any promises, but I just MIGHT have another Q post later this week.
I know, I'm amazing. It's a curse :)
