We know our calculus....

E + J = USSSSSSSSSSSSS.  Anyone else remember that horribly awful song from back in the day?  In case you don't (or you for some reason want to re-live it), here's the link on you-tube .  I'm not going to lie, it's painful. But, what we really wanted to show off was our Young House Love inspired initials.  We picked up the frames on the cheap at KMart and then I googled our initials and an ampersand.  I only knew an 'ampersand' from all the APA formatting I've had to do for my master's lately.  Here's what we came up with!
If you like this design, not only does it offer inexpensive wall art, but my Grandpa pointed out it can also help us to remember which side of the bed we sleep on.  I think he almost commissioned me to make some for him and Gram!  And yep, there is another addition to our bed.  I made a pillow.  Sewed it myself.  It only took me two tries, too.  See, I'm not exactly a 'textbook' sewer (if there is such a thing).  I prefer to do minimal measuring and hope it works out...which might explain why I don't sew anything too precise :)
 The fabric was from JoAnn's -- already on sale AND my teacher discount!  I have a little more fabric to make another pillow...eventually. 
 Now our biggest bedroom challenges are what to do with a bay window and window coverings as well as the super-narrow window on Jon's side of the bed.  Suggestions?


  1. Your initials came out really nice. Good job.

  2. Thanks, Clara! I love your sewing projects! Maybe one day I will get there... :)
