“I wanted to create something inspirational that I could place on my desk - something to remind me, during those stressful work days, to breath and be my best always! The motivational sentiments in the Typography paper collection were perfect for my altered frame! I found this distressed frame on clearance at my local craft store. It’s perfect because it has a worn look already -- no further distress needed! I adhered the “drawer” piece of the small Matchbook Box to the center of the frame to create a “shelf” to place more motivational sayings and knick-knacks. The thought behind the removable spools was for me to “rate” my stress level during my work day --> Green = Doing great & moving forward, Yellow = Need to stop to take some deep breaths, Red = Step away, regroup. The spool that best represents my stress-level at the moment, goes up on the “shelf” as a reminder of how I’m doing. I work a pretty stressful job, so this helps keep me in check! I also LOVE the quote “It’s a good day to have a good day!” That certainly is a driver to have a GREAT day!” -Arlene
