Well your last name, you really can't choose........especially if your married! You can choose not to take the name but that's kinda insulting and akward if you have children.
I must say Im quite happy with my final surname of JOSEPH. I love my initials 'MJ' as most of you know. lol My house is filled with J's or M's and I just love using letters in the decor of my home.
I wanted to share a little project I worked on Friday night.....technically 2 a.m. Saturday morning! I do my best work when everyone is sleeping and Im under pressure (kinda like now...) Actually my daughter's 1st bday party was the following morning and I needed to get my family name wall done.
The big letter 'J' from Home Goods I had blogged about before and it had been just hanging out there on the wall lonely as heck, until I brought home 'o' one day and they became friends. But then I just had Jo hanging there on the wall and I had ideas of what I wanted to do but just haven't had the time. I ran to A.C. Moore to get some supplies and picked up 'E' and 'P'. So here is what I pulled together with what I had hanging around the house. I do pride myself on being an up-cycler, re-cycler Im just all about re-purposing and take any opportunity to prove it!
Here is my proof.....
The crackle finish 'J' in original form
Lowercase 'o' cover is tv listing section of the newspaper
My daughter's old locker magnet board with a piece of toile pattern contact paper cut into a letter 'S'
Wooden capital 'E' spray painted black
White capital letter 'P' which I painted on a leopard pattern.
The letter 'H' is made obviously from a sewing tape measure
Here is the Joseph family name wall
This wall is in our hallway which just got a make-over and the other side is a photo wall that displays our favorite family & friends.
