My family and I were thrilled to have a chance to preview an early copy of the Monsters University Blu-ray Combo Pack. I picked up pizzas, and my nieces and nephew came over for a little viewing party. I was excited to watch it too, so I settled in with my kiddos to enjoy the show. I was so touched when Mike arrives at the university. His innocent and earnest heart is so sweet, he is living his dream. When he exclaimed, “I’ve been waiting for this my whole life!” I knew I wanted to make it into a poster to hang in my office. I just love this quote. The more I looked at it and thought about it, the more it meant to me. I love being a blogger and creating things to share. It’s never a career I imagined for myself – probably because it didn’t exist until a few years ago – but it is absolutely the perfect job for me. I remember telling my husband when we were younger that what I really wanted to do was just be able to come up with new ideas everyday. Then I didn’t think that kind of job existed. I feel really blessed to be able to share my ideas with you guys!
I made two versions, one with a little Mike peeking out and one without. I think the quote is so poignant because whether the moment you are in is happy or hard, you have really been waiting for it your whole life. It would be a great gift for a student just starting college, newlyweds, a couple expecting their first baby, someone launching their own business, or even somebody getting ready to retire. There is always a milestone that is coming, and this print celebrates that.
I printed one poster sized to hang in my office. It’s where I do all my editing and writing, and where I store all my crafting supplies. It’s full of inspiration, but I haven’t gotten around to officially organizing and decorating it. I want this poster to be a jumping off point. It inspires me, and I hope it will inspire you too. You can download both versions in poster size, 20×30 or as an 8×10. I printed my poster at Walgreens since I have one close to my home. It only takes about an hour and you have inexpensive custom artwork!
Check out this little video from Disney. It’s really short, but really inspiring!
