Love for my Momma ~ Free Subway Art Printable

9 May

I love my mother.

She knows it.

It doesn’t take a special day each year for that to be confirmed.

BUT…

I still like to show her my love and appreciation by sending her a card or something special when I can.

I’ve sent flowers in the past but while they are lovely, she’s the kind of lady that likes

something that reminds her of her children even if it’s just a simple letter.

So when I was thinking about what to give her for Mother’s Day this year,

I wanted it to be something she’d see everyday.

Something that expresses how a mother feels

and what her child feels as well.

I remembered this quote from an unknown author.

I think it’s perfect.

I came up with some subway art~

I. LOVE. SUBWAY. ART.

But I don’t love the price.

So I created my own and I’m giving it to you so you can show your mom how much you love her too!

You don’t have to spend a lot of money to show someone how much you love them.

That’s what my momma tells me anyway. 🙂

Here’s what I did.

I downloaded my pdf file onto a memory stick.

Then I took the memory stick to my local FedEx Office Store and gave it to them to print.

I asked for it to be printed on 60# cardstock but you can print it on regular paper if you want.

All 3 only cost me $2.34!!

I purchased an 8×10 frame from JoAnn‘s for $6.99 (50% off this week-SCORE!!!)

and simply took out and laid the glass on top of the print,

 marked where I wanted to trim it and cut it with my paper-cutter.

EASY PEASY.

I think she’ll love it.

It’ll remind her of her favorite child every day. 🙂

I am your favorite, right MOM??

Thought so.

Here’s the pdf files below.  You get your choice of  pink, black or aqua with white type.

Love them!!  Hope you do too!

Rubber Eggs Topped with Love

16 Apr

Breakfast for dinner

Today I thought I’d take my daughter out to breakfast before school. I’m such an awesome a cool mom. She’s having the writing portion of the state test (don’t get me started) today so of course I want her tummy satisfied. No grumbling sounds that make her classmates look at her sideways. But before we could do that, we had to drop off the pup at the vet to get…um…well…snipped. He had no idea. Poor guy – he was so happy just to ride in the car with us. He knows that when he rides it must mean 1 of 2 things: the vet or the kennel. He loves both and they love him.

After we dropped him off we were running short on time, so my great plan to go to Kings Family Restaurant for a nice hearty breakfast was changed to the place with the arches. Not the best breakfast in town but the girl liked it. I should mention that she’s in 5th grade. Excuse me. That’s right. And she’s my baby of 4! The other 3 are living in Texas and you’ll hear more about them later. But I digress. The eggs were like rubber. My burrito was anything but authentic. It’s whatever. We talked. We bonded. We left.

Now we had more time than we thought we would and so we parked in her school parking lot and talked some more. She keeps talking about The Hunger Games and telling me about these scenes in the story. I listen intently because it seems so real to her. She’s so invested in these characters. How exciting to be so wrapped up into what you’re reading that it’s all you can talk about. Ahh. To be 10 again. NOT. In any case, she loves them and if it keeps her charged up about reading, I’m all for it. Except now she wants to take archery lessons and get a bow and arrow set. Naturally, her dad is feeding that desire by promising her to make that dream a reality. Funny, her name was going to be Hunter if she was a boy. No kidding.

As she left the car, she turned back and motioned at me to roll down the window. She leaned in with a smile and said, “Have a great day, Mom”. Thanks! It’s off to a wonderful start!
