Framed City Art

I found a new blog to blogstalk called the House of Wood, which is a clever play on the blog writer's last name of Woodhouse. She has some wonderful DIY projects and step by step instructions on making everything from covered headboards to the room layouts to maximize space efficiently.

She caught my eye and got added to my favorites tab because of this project. I have seen these City art prints on ETSY and on ZGallerie, but I'm frugal, and totally unwilling to pay someone else $85+ to frame typed words of a city I could care less about..And sure, some ETSY crafters can probably personalize one for me with a city of my choice for top dollar, but even better...

Why don't I make one myself?

So I did.

And here it is. My hometown in print.

I'm pretty darn proud of myself.
