I { heart } subway art!

It is all the rage right now, after all... at least in the DIY blogging world, it is. I am definitely not a DIYer, but I was confident I could figure this out.

I went into my subway art frame of mind wanting to do a large piece for above the fireplace to complete my decorations for Christmas. But, that would mean a large frame, and a trip to FedEx/Kinko's to print something big, which translates into time and energy... neither of which I had today.

My online research found these two pieces that I figured I could replicate or just use. { No copyrights, thank you. } In fact, they both were offered by bloggers to be used by others. Nice. Google is a great thing.
I thought this (above) would be nifty for the kids to see, and be reminded of, the rules of a home. The all sound pretty familiar; however, I would have liked this to be an interactive art piece so I could add a few... like, "Keep your hand off the dog" and "Always be a good example". Maybe that will happen when I get some free time.

And this was EXACTLY what I wanted for my Christmas subway art. EXACTLY.

So, here is what I did. I told both jpg files and just printed them on 8.5 x 11 in. size paper. I grabbed some extra cardstock I had, 'framed' the prints, and then put them in frames I already had (hanging on the walls of course, which means I need to replace those). 

The end results. It took all of 10 minutes to do both of these. Very cool.  I am addicted. The options are endless.
