Mind Your Manners

Instead of hanging up a piece of paper with scribbled down list of rules for our kids, why not turn it into a piece of art? For one of my favorite clients, we had a local artist design a fun, colorful painting to remind her boys (& some adults) about good table manners. Their home interior is Mexican Hacienda style with lots of warm, bright colors. I think it is the perfect addition to her breakfast nook! What style would you create for your family rules?

That is a wonderful idea!

This idea is wonderful. You could make many other lists look so pretty. Well done!

Thanks for stopping by! :)

I love this idea that you have for a rules sign! I would have never thought about making something fun out of something people don't usually like! lol

This is rad! I think I will try to make one like this. Possibly with an animal theme. We love animals in our family (I do have a house full of monkey-bears).
Thanks for stopping by and leaving me some bloggy love. =)
