As we head into the cozy fall months, it’s fun to remember our summer adventures. So when Shutterfly asked us to create some home decor inspired by our recent travels, I knew exactly what vacations I wanted to be reminded of daily.
We travel quite a bit as a family, but some trips definitely turn out better than others. However, we’ve never regretted a vacation — when things don’t go as planned, we simply call it an adventure! And, as it turns out, my family LOVES a good adventure.
I just adore our new inspirational pillow and soft fleece blanket ensemble on our living room couch. This quote is exactly how I picture married life: a beautiful adventure with my best friend and our kids. It’s a fabulous daily reminder for me that, just like some trips, when things don’t go as planned, it’s simply another adventure.
To create the pillow, you can download our artwork below then upload it to the Shutterfly site. It’s simple, and Shutterfly will guide you along.
I used the same adventure quote graphic for the 5×5 acrylic block, and I love it paired with the 5×7 acrylic block of our San Francisco biking adventure. (If you’re ever visiting San Francisco, we highly recommend biking across the Golden Gate Bridge!)
We didn’t stop there. To carryout the travel and adventure theme, I used the 11×17 placemat to line the wooden tray on our ottoman. (The TV remotes have to go somewhere, right?) I love how the placemats have a thick laminated protective covering — it makes for easy cleanup of spilled food or drink rings.
To create the tray liner, download our 11×17 50 States artwork below and upload it to the Shutterfly site. We ordered the 11×17 placemat with the artwork.
Our snuggly fleece blanket is my favorite adventure project. I created this fun typographical image using zip codes from our most memorable adventures. I love how personal the throw is while still coordinating with the rest of my home decor.
To create the fleece blanket, type up zip codes onto a white background. I used black, oversized numbers with this font. I included 4 zip codes — although, you could easily fit more or less to fill the space. Upload your jpg to the Shutterfly site, and you’re set to order.
