OUR Family Rules

About two weeks ago, I was on etsy.com searching out a little something to add to my blank wall in both my formal dining room and family room. I had decided on some art that was really my style but I had not made up my mind regarding any one item. I decided I wanted something bible based for both rooms and selected some contenders. 

VINYL WALL DECAL Live Simply Be Grateful Give Love Pray Lots

Vinyl Wall Decal Art Sticker - When it rains look for rainbows - Medium size

Jeremiah 29:11 For I Know The Plans I Have For You Scripture Vinyl Decal- Vinyl Lettering Wall Art

I decided on this decal for the family room wall, I love this hymn and was so pleased to see it in a decal.
Vinyl Wall Art.....Great is Thy FAITHFULNESS......22.5 X 48....God faith hymn religious christian wall decal

Since I felt confident in my choice of decal for the formal dining room wall, I decided to try my luck with something for the family room. I loved the fact that even though I didn't know exactly what I was looking for, etsy had just what I wanted. Here are some contenders:

Family Rules, 16x20 Poster Print, Light Purple, Pink, Custom Color, Personalize,  Lavendar, Spring

In This House - wall monogram phrase decal quote vinyl wall art

Since we are a blended family, I thought this would be a really nice way to acknowledge everyone, this "What a Difference a Day Makes" print will still make an appearance in our home, only not in the family room- I have just the perfect spot for it.
What a Difference a Day Makes Print- Tell a story about life, love and special occasions without words :)

I decided on this print - I love this so very much!
Printable Wall Art for Your Home - Family Rules 8x10


I purchased the template for 10.00 by asking the seller for a size larger (11x14) and had it printed for a mere 1.28 at my local Office Max (by the way they know me on a first name basis there now with all the printing I am doing for my little guy's first birthday party). I love that an 8.5x11 sheet print is .65 cents! I always email my request and pick it up later, they are very efficient and friendly.
 I lucked up on a beautiful white frame and matte border for the print and will be showing both rooms with a few more new looks and updates very soon.

Are there particular places you go for art or prints? Do you make your own?

I would love to see your work in a post! I love those first two decals also - such wonderful reminders of having an attitude of gratitude.

The Etsy seller is really sweet, her name is Colleen. I have a few simple changes to ours but its really pretty (or at least I think so).
