AN EXCERPT FROM THE INTRODUCTION OF THE BOOK
As my husband David and I came up with the idea for WALL CANDY, it was his book that was the first born. As a passionate writer of uplifting and inspirational words, we thought that Davids quotes would help people feel empowered and inspired even more if they could read the quotes on a daily basis placed on their walls and not just sitting in a closed book.
Now as we were going through the process, my sometimes dry sense of humour would come in. David would have written a beautiful and inspiring quote and I would have a funny take on it. I had fun making myself laugh and then wondered would others find them funny too. Needless to say David thought I was a bit odd but thought maybe there was something in the idea. So we asked a few of our friends what they thought and they loved it, so we got to it. This book is the end result!
This book is full of prints with words that are cute, funny, heartfelt and sometimes a little corny, but a bit of corniness is good for the soul I say. I designed the quotes in this book to be used just about anywhere you like. Frame and hang on your walls, peg up using some twine, stick on your refrigerator door, place in a frame on your office desk, frame and give as a gift to someone
you love - there are just so many things you can do with them. You can even add some colour if you prefer. Grab some coloured pencils or felt pens and pimp that print up. Got some sparkly gold and silver glitter around the house, throw some of that on the prints for a stylish sparkly masterpiece to make your walls happy. Hey you could even stick some up in some public spaces too and give someone a giggle (be sure you have permission as I dont want you getting arrested for crafting crimes!).
