Keep on keep’n on

January 23rd, 2011

I admit I have the Keep Calm fever - and I can’t help myself from making my own after I stumbled upon the keepcalm-o-matic website. I made mine in Photoshop - but not until after I surrendered an hour of my life to the keepcalm-o-matic. I’m sure there’s many a Queen’s unauthorized and unapproved motivational slogan just waiting to be made!
Keep on keep'n on
And because I have Portlandia fever… I put a bird on it.
keep artsy and put a bird on it

    I have to boring old keep calm and carry on, but it’s in my bathroom, which I think gives it any number of meanings ;-)

  3. The fabulous Eileen allegedly said:

    ohhhh, too funny! I love/want/must-have the bird and “keep clam and shuck it”! :)

    Love Keep Artsy and Put a Bird On It! The KeepCalm-o-matic site is a great place to waste some time. I made one for my Aunt Marie when she was here last summer. It read “Keep Calm and Pass the Pepper!” I have never seen anyone put so much pepper on their food. She nearly killed us with her stroganoff!

  16. The fabulous Magoo allegedly said:

    ha! “put a bird on it” so true. Beyonce’s “Shoulda put a ring on it” now has a whole new chorus for me.

  22. The fabulous Molly allegedly said:
