Then I doodled some words and leaves and flowers (and colored with chalk markers) and this is how they ended up.
I chose words I actually need to be reminded of and colors I like and made some home decor. I consider them a success because the daughter asked for one for her future apartment. I told her she could make her own, but she's not 100% sure she can pull it off. I think anyone can. And if you don't like your handwriting, you can always use stickers to spell out your words.
