Family Values Subway Art Printable

I'm a follower. Yes, I've jumped on the subway art bandwagon.

You might remember this post, where I made some inspirational art for my kitchen. I really am loving the simplicity of the written word in black and white as art.

Like everyone else out there in blogland, I've seen a lot of DIY Subway Art. I'm a printable kind of gal rather that a paint-it-yourself-er, so I sat down in front of my computer, played around in Publisher (my favorite program, btw) and came up with this.


I chose some phrases that I felt were important for our kids (and us) to remember. This is what it says:
Laugh Out Loud
Love One Another
Keep Your Promises
Help Others
Say Please and Thank You
Don't Whine
Work Hard
Say I Love You
Share
Be Grateful
Use Kind Words
Always Tell the Truth
Do Your Best

I stuck it in a frame that I had on hand, and there you go! Free art!

Here's the printable for you if you'd like. Just click on the image, right click and save. Size is 8x10.


What would your family values sign say?

I'm in love with that!!! So cute! I have no idea what our family values sign would say...

Oh wait...I have one sign...it says 'Because Nice Matters' :)

I have a stitched sign too. It says 'Never let a problem to be solved become more important than a person to be loved.'

There you are...that's all I've got.

Those are all really awesome. You are so crafty. The only one I have that comes to my mind right now is "Guart your heart above all else,for it determines the course of your life" -Proverbs 4:23

I love the subway art that is definitely popular right now. Your's looks great! I think this is so funny...I actually wanted to do the SAME thing you did...using the words from the song on your blog!!(Love Like Crazy) I told my husband on the phone last week (he's playing soldier in TX right now) I think the chorus from this song says it ALL! This just makes me want to do it more! Thanks for the motivation!!!

Thanks for the subway art...I just love it! It covers all the important things my parents taught me that I then taught my children...nice to know there are still people who have values! I had it printed at Costco for $1.49 and picked up a 11x14 black frame with a white mat at Joanns on clearance...art for my office for $8.00! Thank you!!

I have copied several of your prints. I just wanted to say thank you so much. I have done a lot of lapbook stuff for Homeschoolshare.com (a free site) and I know what it takes in time and effort to create. I really appreciate you offering them for free. sincerely, Kelly

I know I'm a little late to this party but is there any way you would give us the names of the fonts that you have done? I love this and have never done a subway sign before but I want to paint it and not print it so I need to print it out and the try and cut the letters out on the paper to make a temporary stencil. My sign is 12 x 24 inches. Thanks so much.
