a space that inspires

I wanted to share a fun picture with you all! My darling mom starts her new job this year as a high school librarian – her DREAM JOB! Prior to being the school’s librarian, she was an administrator at the same school. Talk about a change, huh? Anyway, the school’s library has always been quite stale. Think bare white walls and ugly furniture. It was screaming, “SAVE ME, SAVE ME!” One of my mom’s big goals this year was to bring some pops of color to the space and make it an enjoyable spot for students to gather in. Just because they are big kids doesn’t mean they should have to work in a stale environment. Am I right? So, to help solve this problem, we got busy brainstorming different ideas and decided that an inspirational wall of words along the circulation desk would make a perfect focal point for the space. Together, we came up with a list of “How Can Reading Impact You?” words. Then, I chose the colors of paper, picked my favorite font combos, and got crackin’ on my Cameo Machine. I shipped off the words to her earlier this week and today she sent me this picture: image Gorgeous, right? The teachers and students are so lucky to have her as their school librarian. I know she will make a BIG impact in her new position! Her next step is to create little reading nooks around the library. LOVE IT! These are the five fonts that I used for the project above, incase you want to create your own inspirational wall in your classroom: image I hope everyone is surviving back to school time! Remember, it will get easier. You’ve got this!

Spread the word

    Hi there! That circulation desk is amazing! I would love to do something similar. I have a couple questions. What is the black behind the words? How do you choose the font sizes for the different words and what were the font sizes? I dont have a cricut or cameo and so I will be making mine on the computer and printing out then laminating the card stock used.Thanks!!!
