Keep Calm and Eat Bacon

Friday, March 11, 2011

It's no secret that I am Keep Calm obsessed. Here's my latest addition to the growing Keep Calm collection in my house. When I picked up the print at Costco, the photo department gal chuckled as she handed it to me and asked me if we ate a lot of bacon. We don't really and she must have thought I was crazy when she she received this order over the internet. Actually, I shutter to think of some of the photos that must cross her order desk.

Here is how I made the new addition to my kitchen. I designed the print to 16x20 and printed at Costco for $5.99, deal! Then I framed it in this Ikea frame for $14.99 but wasn't too happy with the existing white mat. My only qualm with the Ikea Ribba frames is the color of the "white" mats, they just aren't white. So, I grabbed the mat and ran over to Michael's and had a black one cut for $9.00. The project cost me $30 from start to finish.

Can't wait to share the "real" photos of my kitchen taken by Marla yesterday. Boy am I glad the photos are done, it's a lot of work to get your house perfect for photos.

Gotta run! I'm hosting a baby sprinkle this weekend (remember the invitation) and have lots to do.
