Personalized Song Lyric Picture Frame

Hi! It's Jilly. Hubby and I have been married almost twelve years. TWELVE! So crazy! One of my favorite things in our house is this personalized picture frame my friend and I made as a anniversary/birthday/Christmas present for Hubby. (I had the idea for a long time and it took me a while to bring it to fruition.)

I wrote my husband a song and sang it to him at our wedding reception as a surprise. I was sooooo nervous, but it was worth it! He loved it, and there wasn't a dry eye among my mom and aunts. Ha ha!

I wanted to display the lyrics somehow, plus display one of our wedding pictures. This picture frame was the perfect solution!

Want to make a picture frame with special lyrics on it for your honey?

First, get a picture frame with a wide, white mat. You'll want plenty of room for the words.

You can either use a Cricut or Silhouette to cut out your lyrics on vinyl, or use alphabet stickers. I had my friend cut vinyl letters for me with her vinyl cutter.

Carefully lay the letters on the mat. If using alphabet stickers, brush a light coat of Mod Podge over them when you're done. You don't need to if using vinyl.


That's it! It's such a great way to make a meaningful, personalized gift. And, it's easy, too. ;)

Hubby was really touched by the gift. He says it's one of the best gifts I've ever given him! (Ignore the pajamas. It was Christmas morning!)

Finish This...

Hi! It's Jilly. Time for this week's "Finish This". Let's see what sentences I have to finish today!

My favorite vacation spot is... 

I pretty much like to go anywhere on vacation, but somewhere near the beach or a lake is awesome. I love the feel of the coast and looking out over the water. There's something thrilling about it. We're going to Baltimore for Spring Break, and I can't wait to hang out at the Inner Harbor!



If I won a million dollars I would... 

Ha ha! My husband and I actually talk about this all the time. It's fun to dream about what you would do. If I won a million dollars, first I would pay off hubby's student loans, then save the rest to buy a house on a decent sized piece of property wherever we "land" after residency.

If I found a genie in a bottle, my three wishes would be...

Hmmm...this is a hard one! Do I ask for the things I would do with the million dollars?! Do I wish for other, non-tangible things?! I don't know! It's such a tricky question. Then there's the issue of how you word the wishes. For example, if I wished to get rid of my habit of yelling at my kids, what if they were in danger and I literally couldn't yell to them because of my wish? Or if you wish for money, what about inflation? I just can't decide.

My favorite clothing item is...

My first instinct was to say flip flops, but my feet in recent years have decided those are not great for me. Lately I've been loving cardigans. And jeans are a staple I can't do without!

Finish This...

Hi! It's Jilly. Time for this week's "Finish This". I'm really enjoying this game. It makes me think about things I usually wouldn't think about, and share things I usually wouldn't share.

On Saturday morning I usually... sleep in, while the kids watch TV. Even though they're eight years old, they still like to watch Disney Junior. I am grateful for that!

I feel beautiful when... I get dressed up for church on Sunday. It's so nice to put on a dress, do my makeup, and go to church! During the week I don't really do my makeup very much or dress fancier than jeans and a t-shirt.


I wake up every morning...
