Coffee Station Time

I am in love with this picture and think it's retro look would be cute framed in my kitchen. Any tips on the best way to print something like this up. What type of paper would I use? I wish I could order it from somewhere all done as my printer is sort of wonky.


Anyway this post is my happy birthday to me. I love my birthday week. I spend very little on myself these days it seems so to know some gift cards are coming and money from the dear old in-laws lets me think about what I want to by just for me.


So here is what I am buying for myself. I have been wanting one for a while. I love flavored coffees but hubby doesn't so I always have to change the filter and all that. No more. It is a mini Keurig in RED

It will be going here in my coffee station. I hope the reds like each other.


Oh and is anyone's stats on Blogger frozen? Mine have been stuck at the same number since yesterday? Hmm.

Happy Birthday. I will try to make this clear on the printing...not that I am an expert. But, You don't want to use ink up for the background. So I would buy whatever color paper you want. Then before you print it....remove the background color. Then all that will print will be the words and pictures. You may have to play with the colors a bit...so they come out true on the color paper you buy...but you can do it.
Have fun on your birthday!!

Happy Birthday! I love your gift! The coffee station is adorable. Don't know about my stats. I never look at them. ;)

Happy Birthday!!!!! I love your cute little Keurig! And RED!!!! Awesome....I have a big one but it is black as I'm not even sure they make red in the bigger ones. I didn't see it anyway....hopefully someday they will but your's is just precious and will fit right into your kitchen decor. I love mine but have noticed I am not drinking as much water and more coffee...and also, they have natural apple cider and hot cocoa which is my downfall with marshmallows on top...LOTS! Have a great day and enjoy your birthday week, month etc;...the older I get the longer I celebrate!

Happy Birthday, Elaine! :)

Oh Wow! We share a birthday month! I don't know about the printing, it will make such a great addition. But, I have seen small, reusable Krug filters for the coffee machine. You put your own coffee in and reuse, over and over. Saves on buying those things.

I don't know if this would work for you, but you could save the image to a disc or flash drive and take it to a copy shop (Copy Max or FedEx/Kinko's or some such) and have it printed out. You can bring or choose your paper, and the printers and ink are of a way higher quality than a home printer. The cost is not that much and you really save on your own printer's ink and wear and tear. You may have to show that your image is copywrite free (as indeed one should be sure of).

HAPPY BIRTHDAY (MONTH!)
Hope you have a wonderful birthday and a warm sunny day to enjoy it! (that's VERY important to me being in the middle of the country where it is COLD!)
I have a Kuerig I got at Christmas as a very generous gift and I ADORE it! (oh, and the big ones DO come in a dark red I think it is)
ENJOY ENJOY!

Hi Elaine,
Happy birthday week. If you get some replys about the picture. I would like to print one too. The mini kureg machine looks great, and will match the rest of your appliances.
Hope your day is great. Mine is very quiet and I keep wishing I were at home.

Is today your actual birthday? Happy Birthday. I love your gift to yourself. What a good idea. My stats are going wild, too. But instead of being frozen they are exaggerating my numbers. Good old blogger...

We do not like flavoured coffees but enjoy different kinds.

Happy Birthday!! Love the red coffee maker...very cute! As far as the picture goes...I have found that if you can put it on a flash drive and take it to Costco to print on a matte finish it would be cheap and look great. I do that all the time so I can switch up pictures in my house.

Happy Birthday week to you! How fun to celebrate for the week. That is a lovely little gift that little red Keurig. The reds will look great togehter. Ceekay had a great tip for you for printing. I loved that. I know yesterday I tried to post to Claudia's blog and Blogger wouldn't let me post, so after 2 tries I gave up and left the blogs alone. Today everything is fine.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I love a gal who celebrates her birthday for a whole week. I'm trying for a full month now! Enjoy! hugs, Linda

Happy birthday if I didn't say so already, I'm so old I can't remember :) So glad you're getting the Keurig, you know Brenda (Cozy) loves hers! I am having constant problems with Blogger - my feed doesn't work, husband fixed it last week and now friends are telling me that it's not working again, so no one knows when I posted something new. Very frustrating. If Google removes GFC, I'm moving to Wordpress. Hugs ~ Mary

Happy Birthday to you!

Happy Birthday! Love your coffee station! I bought my husband a Keurig for Christmas last year and he loves it. I don't drink much coffee but love to use the hot water for cocoa.

Blessings,

Gina

Happy Birthday Elaine! I've been debating about getting one too. You'll have to report back how you like it. My biggest concern is the cost. My hubby does drink coffee and we both drink 2-3 cups a day.
