New artwork to go with the new look!

Well, we finally got around to making some of the changes in the house that we had been wanting to do for ages. Absolutely ages. So there's a new look at home and it feels nice. We're still not done, but then no house ever is, unless you get it done by a decorator which doesn't usually give the feeling of home. To me, it's important to see ones home as an ever-changing process, so that it grows and changes as you do. When you have kids, it often the simplest of things that makes the difference, like having a bin to store all the toys, and even better if the bin is nicely disguised as regular furniture so it doesn't stand out!

Where I find that one can be a little freer is with art. I like to have art that's not the run of the mill traditional kind. Maybe something that could be even like children's art, or better still, some of your child's art as regular art, beautifully mounted and framed. It's what gives a home personality, the opposite of cookie-cutter homes. So I am thrilled to have poster printers at hand, where I can upload either my own photographs or scan something that my daughter made and have it enlarged to something like an 18x24 and shipped to me. Awesome! Really, I'm in love with this concept and how I can create whatever kind of posters and prints I want.

With a lot of poster printers there are odd terms and high shipping costs, but Shortrun Posters is a pretty straightforward company, which makes it great to work with them. Usually when I like something, I want to blog about it, but this time I'm tempted to Tweet this as well!
