More Than Words

Words are powerful. Not all words, of course, but the right words at the right moment can change a person's perspective or their mind, or even ~ I dare say ~ change a person's life. There are three words that I think of whenever things in my life get a little crazy. Words that ground me, and remind me of the way that I {want} to live my life.


I wanted to have these words displayed somewhere in my home, but I've recently come to realize that my home is becoming just a wee bit {verbose}. Subway art, our family name, some sayings that I love....lots and lots of words. Not wanting to add more obvious word art to the mix, but wanting to have these words around me, I came up with this...


I wanted the colors to be {subtle}, and the braille to really be barely more than a hint, so I chose a lighter grey background and a slightly darker grey for the dots. I simply typed the words that I wanted in a font that I could read (I wanted to know for sure that everything was spelled correctly) and then converted them to braille using a free font I found online.


I really like how it works with the black & white photos on the wall. I also like the way the dots on the frame {mimic} the braille. Not bad for a $2.50 frame from the dollar store.


There are so many things I love about it. The simplicity and subtlety, and the fact that it is a message for {me} that doesn't scream out to everyone who comes into the room.

If you'd like to download one for yourself, you can find the 5x7 printable here.
