a love print story.

I think I have professed my love for Chasing Fireflies before here on the blog.  I love their style, the uniqueness of their gifts..I love a lot about them. Except for one thing. Their prices.

After just recieving their early spring catalog, I found the sweetest little print.

Check it out:

I LOVE IT!  It is printed on wood and comes with a ready to hang frame. I think the sentiment was one of the sweetest I've seen.  AND THEN I SAW THE PRICE.  $278. WHAT?! what. what. What?! I couldn't believe it.  Well, this morning I still woke up dreaming about that print.  So I thought..I'm going to make my own.  And no, it won't be printed on wood..or come with a frame. (But I am 100% positive I can find a frame I adore for MUCH less than $278.) 

So I came up with this:

I still have the wood grain. I love that the type is a bit more chunky and slightly distressed.  I guess you could say..I am in love.:)

And do you want to know the best part? The price. Only $7.95 in my shop for a 5x7. $9.95 for an 8x10 or just $11.95 for an 11x14 or 11x17.  Totally beats the $278 they wanted! AND it will also be up as a digital print as well..for those who want to do the printing themselves and not have to bother paying for shipping. Only $5.00 for any size.  Go check it out!
