Family – You Like This |Vinyl|

10 Aug

We are the generation of social media (actually I think it is the generation younger than me but shhhh! No one has to know my age). According to my facebook timeline, I joined in Oct. of 2004. About the time my college first was granted entrance to the site (before it was open to just any one, you had to be a college student… did you know that? I supposed we’ve all seen the movie…). It’s easy for me to get a good laugh at parody’s and look-a-likes. I decided to add my own look-a-like to our loft (“play room”) as a simple reminder to myself (and probably my kids someday) that  family is what we like. Not sitting on the internet all day. Thus, I created: Family – You Like This, vinyl decor. 

Family- Facebook You Like This

I applied the adhesive vinyl right above our TV, where we are likely to see it the most (haha). I was so happy when I saw that I had a close enough color blue vinyl to the facebook logo.

The font I used for the “you like this” part is called “Lucida Sans”. The thumb image I took from a google search. It is hard for me to describe how I created “Family” because it is not a font you can download. In fact, facebook font is a customized one that is not obtainable to the public. I had to just manipulate it myself with my less than awesome computer skills (seriously, what takes me an hour to figure out takes my husband 2 minutes. I should have waited for him to come home and help but I was too anxious).

Clever, right? Do you think I should redo the words “you like this” in black vinyl? That would be more accurate to facebook. I was just too anxious to get this up, I wasn’t thinking accuracy while I was cutting it.
