What do I do with all these sayings?

 That's a good question.  Here are a few suggestions....

1.  Make a handmade card, you family would love it.

2.  Print out a saying in a nice font and color.  Frame it and hang it on the wall or give it as a gift.

3.  Paint one of the shorter sayings on a frame and place a family picture inside it.

4.  Backstitch a saying on a piece of aida cloth and make it into a pillow or wall hanging.

Whatever you do your family will love it.  Afterall, it was made by you.

These are so lovely - and yes worth framing. If I did not have my loving family when I was a child in my formative years - well, I'd be nutty right now.

I love sayings! Thanks so much!

Koffeeklatch .... I read through these, and they are quite funny. I love all the ones about being nuts or crazy, at the beginning. Family does drive you nuts but we still love them. Have a good night!

prairieprincess, there's nothing like family. I think all of us are related to one kind of nut or other.
