Quotable

I love quotes. I also love sayings, scriptures, song lyrics, poems, etc. I have 4 different documents on the computer with pages and pages of those that I've collected. They have to be written down because I can never remember anything word-for-word.

Just like I can't tell a joke. I'm like Marlin. You know, Nemo's dad in "Finding Nemo". "There's a mollusk, see, and he walks up - well, actually, he swims up..." You get the idea.

{I'm not really sure why I keep using that movie for my analogies, but I have limited viewing options as far as movies go.}

So, I decided to use some of my "home" time with Monkey to make a couple of shadow boxes that highlight one of my favorite quotes. I'm not sure where this quote came from, but it's inspiring.

"How does one become a butterfly?
You must want to fly so much
that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar."

Here's a closer look:

What a great idea and a beautiful quote. It would also be very cute using vinyl lettering across the top of a wall.

I am a quote addict but have never thought of turning them into wall art. Thanks for the brilliant idea. And this turned out lovely!

That's a cute way to display it--like the background.
