Create your own Subway Art

Phew!  It took a while but the subway art that I talked about here is finally complete.  I love how it turned out and I love that all the places mentioned have meaning to our family.  We actually could have filled a bigger canvas because I didn't get to a few of the places and it certainly doesn't leave room for our next destination (do NOT mention this part to the kids) but it works for now.


There's not enough room to tell you about it all but these are some of the places the family has lived.  Some of the remaining ones are places that either my husband or I have lived on our own.


Man, after all that work I think I deserve a martini, don't you?

  3. The art is wonderful, I love how it's personalized. Actually, I love the way you styled the entire area. It seems as though maybe you included elements of some of your favorite things in that area.
