Unsuitable and Subversive

I love the contrast between raw, in-your-face messages and sweet images.  I had never considered such a juxtaposition until I looked at a cross-stitch website an old friend designed for someone.  It was awesome!  I have a number of projects in the planning stages due to the inspiration.  I just finished a sweet design with checkered border surrounded by hearts that says, "You're gonna get yelled at...."  It's one of many warnings I issue to my kids, husband, and pets when they're annoying the @#%* out of me.  I used to cross-stitch all of the time, but got tired of complicated designs and saccharine phrases.  Now I'm inspired to put my personality out there and can't wait to start on my next project.  (I can't decide whether to do @#%* Cancer next - for my mom who is battling cancer - or to do "Really?" to hang up in my office at work.)

Yep. I've got the **** Cancer one all planned out with the pink ribbon and so forth.) I've also thought of one for the bathroom that says "Pick your s**t up off of the floor." Just wanted to have a friendly reminder. LOL!

Yes, I love that! I must have hundreds of snarky sayings and right now they are all gone out of my head. "**** Cancer" You know your mother would love to have that.
