framed art ~ $7

My Pinterest board is full of awesome ideas that I want to try someday.   But once in a while, a projects just leaps out at me; I get down to business and do it right away.

That’s what happened when I saw this project by I Am Mama Hear Me RoarShe explains exactly how to print this giant subway art, and I did it exactly the same way after buying the rights to her layout.  ($3.50)

I painted my kitchen green a couple weeks ago.  It sure is a bright and happy color!  I love it except in the evening when there’s no natural light.

After hanging it up, I decided I wanted more colors, so I whipped out my “mommy markers” and filled in some of the words.  I had the frame down in the basement;   Brian gave it to me for our first married Christmas with a poster that I loved.  I no longer love the poster, but the frame is just right for this!


People are often unreasonable,
illogical and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind,
people may accuse you of selfish ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful,
you will win some false friends and true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank,
people may cheat you;
Be honest anyway.

What you spend years building,
someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness,
they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today,
people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have,
and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis,
it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

Mother Teresa Poem
