20 Going on 80

Today is a special day.
Yes, yes it is. 
Instead of me running my mouth, I'll let Melissa do the talking ;)
Let me just preface this by saying...thanks for being awesome, Melissa!
................................................................

Hola all of Jessica's wonderful readers! I'm Melissa and I blog over at 20 Going on 80. I am excited to be hijacking Jessica's blog today to share with you a little craft project! 

As my blog name suggests, I’m a twenty something who often gets told she’s a grandma. (It’s also self admitted, so don’t feel bad for me.) On my blog, you will find my favorite recipes, diy project ideas, free printables, design inspiration, my favorite outfits, a few other random things. Like, how I am a kitchen gadget hoarder. You know, the usual life of a college student. Oh wait...

And because people apparently like to see the person behind the blog, here's a photographia of da' gal behind the blog. 

Disclaimer: This photo is deceiving. Don't let a photo of me frolicking in a field of flowers fool you. The other 75% of the time, I'm in gym shorts and a tank top.

By day, I am a Graphic Design student, as well as graphic designer at a large food magazine. By night, I am a blog designer over at my Online Studio, Melissa Rose Design. So as you probably have concluded already...I'm a bit obsessed with design. My days are crazy busy but I love every minute of it.

So like my true self, I decided to share with you all a free downloadable printable today. Since Jessica is the queen of fitness, I thought it would be fun to design a print with one of her favorite inspirational quotes on it. 

The quote she sent over was, "Have Less. Do More. Be More." Below, it is transformed into a 5x7 wall art personally for Jessica. But because it would be cruel to only send it to her, I've included the instructions on how you can download it below! :)


I love this quote & the message it sends! I constantly have to *attempt* to slow myself down and focus on the important things, rather than the million other things I have going on. This printable would be a great reminder in any space to slow down, prioritize, and get the most out of your time.
And because I'm obsessed with design, I thought it would be fun for all of you to leave a comment with your favorite quote & I will pick a few to design into printable wall arts. From those entries, I will randomly chose one winner to receive a gift certificate to my shop!

    Hmmm, a favorite quote...well lately I have been trying to live by this quote from a book I was reading
    "God gave us two ears but only one mouth. Maybe he was hinting we should listen twice as much as we speak."

    It is totally a challenge for me! Happy Thursday!
