I like the use of different fonts, and what it says makes me laugh because I do it a lot.  Silently. Smiley If I had children, I'd correct theirs out loud all the time.

Personally, I am offended if people don't correct me because then I am continuing to use a word wrong and everybody is just silently correcting it.

I am another one who wants to be corrected if I'm pronouncing something incorrectly, but many people do find it condescending. A tactful way to handle it is to re-use the word yourself, correctly. If they pick up on it and correct themselves, great, and if not--well, you did your part.

That is an excellent way to correct adults! Pronunciation is easy to do; grammar, a bit more difficult. As long as you are tactful and do not embarrass the person, correcting should not be offensive.

I know when I give mine to my sister, she will know that it is given tongue in cheek...she is aware that people find her slightly annoying, but we all love her anyway! Cheesy 

I just think that it is wonderful to take such fun expressions and make them into a beautiful project!

That is so much fun! I think I need to make one for my sister, who used to be an English teacher. Beautifully done!

I really like it! and lucky me! It's on my wall! Thanks so much for this. My husband also agreed with your "I am" instead of "I'm" so don't worry it's kind of funny because he agreed, and said "now, which do YOU think is right?" I could have clobbered him! Anyways,  I am very lucky to have such a gorgeous, funny and neat piece added to my hoopla wall!

OMG, that is too cute.  My husband would LOVE this.  He's constantly telling me about a few people he works with who just can't write (even though, its their job in many cases).

I love this so much! My biggest pet peeve is when businesses that are trying to sell you something use incorrect grammar and spelling. Tongue
