I have been seeing a lot of people posting their family rules on their blogs lately and I’ve kind of been filing it away in my brain as something I need to get down on paper.  The other day I came across a blog that was doing a giveaway of personalized Family Manifestos and it again caught my eye because really, talk about simple personal art that has meaning.  For a family who’s kids are over the moon for letters, it seems natural to seek out artwork that features letters and words.  I bookmarked the blog because I figured I’d never win but they were cute and totally affordable ($5) so I would eventually get around to getting my own…one way or another.

Well, I WON!

Those words up there?  All mine. The rules of the house so to speak.  Some of them are said out loud often (there is no crying in baseball).  Some of them are simply understood (pray when you feel like it).  Some of them are things we are trying to instill in our boys even though they are very young (be nice to books).  I *really* had to keep myself from adding “Don’t Bite!” to my list of what I wanted on there.

You can get a Family Manifesto of your own to print by checking out Buena Vida Designs on Etsy.  Meredith is super great to work with and it really couldn’t be easier.

Thanks Meredith!

Disclosure: I won this piece of artwork from a giveaway hosted by La Buena Vida.  I’m sharing my honest opinion because it totally made my day!
