Actually I couldn't decide between 3 different sayings so I let my husband have a say in our home decor.

Any guesses as to which one he chose?
In the end he picked "Ice Cream" because according to him, those lyrics have stood the test of time for us.
Using a placemat and an old dingy pillow, I decided to create a cute pillow for our bed.
First, I printed out the lyrics in a pretty font so I could trace them onto the placemat.
I cut a slit at the bottom of the placemat so I could slide the paper inside to trace the words.
This didn't work out too good as my placemat was so thick I couldn't see the words inside. So I had to free hand it. I used a Sharpie permanent marker to write out the letters. It was tedious work since not only was the placemat thick, but it had a rough texture. I had to go over each section of each letter several times to make sure it showed up. Needless to say, I left off the "Sarah McLachlan" part.
Once I was done writing out the quote, I stuffed the pillow inside.....
....and placed it on the bed. I didn't even sew up the slit in the back. No one will ever know since I'm the one who makes the bed and I don't mind.
So now we have a happy little reminder of our wedding day and our love.
If you're looking to make a personalized pillow, this is certainly an easy way to do it.
Here are some other pillows I've been liking lately. I'm sure they could be DIY-able too.
