There are some nice sayings here. My computer is in a spare bedroom and I've decorated it with pictures of my family that I've copied and stretched across the wall. The other thing I've done is taken sayings or poems that mean something to me and made them fancy by changing the lettering or adding a design and printed them out and hung them up on my wall too. The one I like the most is:
"Work like you don't need the money,
Love like you've never been hurt, and
Dance like you do when nobody's watching."

By Pam

"Change is inevitable, except from vending machines"

"An unbreakable toy is useful for breaking other toys"

My mother in law had this one hanging in her bathroom that was used for the children. And you can just imagine WHY!

Please be neat and wipe the seat."

"Life is for living, not just surviving"

"Sometimes you have to fall, just to remember how far from the bottom you are"

"Those who say it cannot be done, should not interrupt those doing it"

"Don't just get along, get along in style!"

"Friends come and go, you stay forever!"

By Panne

"I'm smiling because you're my sister
I'm laughing because you can't do anything about it"

By Barb

This is new to me but I love the thought....

"Don't stress about birthdays...
More candles just make life brighter!"

Just had a b-day with a big # and that is the advice my sis-in-law shared, brightened my day!

My husband and I used to make little wooden signs and hand print sayings on them to sell at craft shows. I have several hundred that I have copied from t-shirts, hats, cross stitch, etc. and still make a few for friends that fit them.

I made one for the lady who cuts my hair:

"I'm a beautician...not a magician!"

For my daughter-in-law who is a worry wart:

"I know worrying must help because everything I worry about never happens!"

And for fishing friends:

"Work is for people who don't know how to fish"

My Dad's favorite was:

"Definition of a boat: A hole in the water that you throw money into!"

These are just a few.

By Harlean

I just have to say to whomever posted it - I love the one that said "You can't scare me. I have kids." It made me laugh out loud.

These are wonderful ideas. My friend is having her fourth boy. I heard a poem about a mother of sons that I would really like to crossstitch for her, but I can't find it. I know one line was about sons being a blessing. Does anyone know a poem like that? I could really use your help. Thanks.

In our powder room growing up, my mother had a very simplistic cross stitch design of a man sitting on a toilet ("Thinker Style") with the following saying:

"We have two ends with a common link,

With one we sit, with one we think,

Success depends on which we use,

Heads we win, tails we lose."

I hope that my child looking back on today remembers a mother who had time to play
Children grow up while you're not looking there's years ahead for cleaning and cooking
So quiet now cobwebs dust go to sleep I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep.
