Make Your Own 'Keep Calm and Carry On' Poster For Free

Tell me something: do you beat yourself up over mistakes made? Well, I don't know how to stop sometimes! I just had my third exam tonight and I wasn't able to respond to one question, only one, but two other responses were related to this one. I felt my blood pressure going up while I was trying to find the answer. I was on the verge of tears when my husband came to pick me up after the exam.  How ridiculous is that? As if life isn't demanding enough already...
Anyway, back to the blog title: I saw in my Google Analytics report that some visitors came to my blog searching for a "Keep Calm Carry On" poster as a  free download, probably because of this post. It looks like the frenzy over this poster isn't over yet so I decided to share the information about a Keepcalm-o-matic Website. You can enter you own text and choose between several interesting options (color, font, image, size). So go on and try it out, it's definitely fun. You can save your poster as a jpeg image if you like, and do as you please with it after that. Enjoy!

That is a very good lesson to follow! And thank you for visiting Yasmine. Yes those flowers are since Jan 31, 2010! Yes in Victoria we have had a very mild winter. It is nearly 10C outside in the day now, sometimes rain, sometimes sunshine, never snow... Life is different on the West Coast. Maybe you saw some of that during the Olympics!

My husband is from Quebec and remembers the long winters. We love it here for the mild weather.

Check out flickr for more photos too! :)

@Expat Traveler: thanks for all of your nice comments! btw, I didn't find the link to your Flickr page.
@Sonja: you're welcome, glad you could use it!

Thank you Yasmine, that site is great. What fun to create our own slogan...I can relate to the testing blank out, it's been years but that would always happen or I would think the question was harder and that it was a trick question. Have a great day.

Don't worry too much about your exam. It happened to me many times before, and it didn't turn out to be that bad.

Remember also most students probably have the same problem answering the questions...

Usually, once something is done, I move on. I'm anxious before, never after!

I could use one of these posters as a reminder, myself! What a fun idea.

Ooohhh! I like it. Make my own poster. Cool.
Yours is good - great daily credo.
And... to heck with the test. There will be others and you'll know the answers. Besides - I bet if you asked, you weren't the only one stumped.

Thank you girls for your nice comments and encouragement!

I'm the creator of the Keep Calm-o-matic website - thanks for the mention!

I suspect it's one of these crazes that don't die for as long as people think that things are really grim. First it was terrorism, then bird flu, now the credit crunch! Each time there seems to be a new surge of people wanting something to cheer them up a bit.
