{Finished is Better Than Perfect} Free Printable


If you are anything like me, you start a project with a visual and have high hopes of achieving that visual. However, by the time you put in all that time, effort, stress . . . you are just ready to be done. Sound familiar, no?? Well, than you have more patience than me. For those of us who feel this way sometimes . . . or most of the time, here is a free printable to remind us that, well,  finished is better than perfect. I wish I could say this was my craft room but it is my amazing sister’s, who usually doesn’t settle for just “finished” as you can tell from the stenciled wall, fabric flower topiary, organized scrap fabric, cute container for Sour Patch Kids (of all things), red chair, cute scissor holder, etc. etc. etc.There are 4 different colors to choose from and are 5 x 7 printables. Just click on the image you want and print!

    What is the font called that the word perfect is written in? I love it and the motto :)

    A sentiment that we all too often forget! A lovely layout that emphasises how well the fonts work together. This definitely needs pride of place somewhere in my home…now where? Hmmm….

    Adorable! Please tell me where to find frames like that – I have been looking everywhere!

      My sister got those frames from TJ Maxx about 6 months ago. I am sure they are at Hobby Lobby.

    I’m wondering if I should print that for the workers currently redoing my downstair rooms?

    Your sisters craft room is awesome. Thanks for the cute printable!

    Any chance you know where she got the frame? I’d love one.

      This is Telisa’s sister Tristen – I got the frame at TJ Maxx about six months ago.

      • Jen Boss posted on August 22, 2011 at 7:58 pm (#

        If this is too much to ask for no worries. Do you mind looking on the frame and telling me the company that made it? Thanks! Love it!

      • Tristen posted on August 23, 2011 at 10:12 am (#

        There is no info on the frame. So sorry. It just says made in China.
