Over the weekend Today's Fabulous Finds surpassed 1,000 readers in Google Friend Connect.  With those that have subscribed to posts through e-mail and other readers, this blog now has over 1,400 readers!  I'm so appreciative to those of you who take time from your already busy days to take a look at something that I've made and then even take the time to leave me a comment.  Thank you so much!!!

I wanted to do something to show you my appreciation for the support and kindness that you've shown to me over the last 6 months, sooo I have a small gift for you and a giveaway!  What's up for grabs?

This giveaway is closed.

Enter to win
One Free Personalized Subway Art (pdf) Print
You choose the theme!
You choose the words (or leave it up to me)!
You choose the color!
I'll do the rest!
 
You could choose a family theme, inspiring words theme, sports theme, whatever you want, it's up to you! 
 
To Enter:
 
Just leave me a comment telling me what theme you would choose if you win. 

  • This giveaway is open to everyone who reads Today's Fabulous Finds.
  • I will e-mail a pdf image of the print to the winner, so you must have an e-mail account.
  • The winner will be notified by e-mail, if an e-mail address is made available, if not they will have 24 hours to contact me or I will select a new winner.  Giveaway closes on March 16th at 11 pm MST. 


Now...you know that I realize that you can't all win, so I spent some time and designed a bonus subway art print with a Birthday theme as a small gift--just for those of you who read my blog.
(This has been the most requested theme.)   
 


Ideas for how you could use the Birthday Subway Art:
  • as a birthday card
  • as an invitation-you can fit 2-4x5 prints on an 8x10 sheet of photo paper (check your dollar store--8 sheets for $1), print them on the right side of the paper (hot dog style) and then cut (hamburger style) and fold them in half for cards/invitations
  • as a birthday countdown--frame the print and then use a dry erase marker to write the countdown numbers on the glass over the center balloon each day (works okay), or laminate it and write on the lamination
  • if you know how to edit images you can insert a filled box over the balloons to hide them, and then add the month and day of the birthday (I like to use a stencil font for the numbers.)
  • put picture of the birthday girl/boy in the center over the balloons and frame it, to honor them during a party or for their special day
  • print them small, attach them to a pick and put them on a cupcake


For Personal Use Only
Please don't post these images on your website, thanks.
 You are more than welcome to use the picture above :) 
  





(You can print the black and white images onto colored paper, or scrapbook paper with a simple pattern.)

To download: You must first click on the image to open it in a new window in it's highest resolution.  Right click on the image and either copy and paste it into a document (to size and then print), or click on save image as to save it to your computer.  You will need to size it before you print.
To size the prints:   The prints look will look the best printed as an 8x10 or 4"x5" (for a card), but can be stretched to other sizes if you insert them into a document using a program like Microsoft Word/Publisher or Photo shop.  Insert the image, click on it, then drag the sides of the image to the size that you want.  (A 5x7 will look slightly stretched vertically, but still looks good.) 
Thanks again and don't forget to enter the giveaway! (now closed)

Let's see....I would use the travel theme. I live near Yosemite and there are lots of fun-named places around here like Nippinawasse, Coarsegold, and Fish Camp. I can already picture it. Thanks for the opportunity.

April said...

LOVE the birthday one!!! I've never seen birthday Subway Art, so this was a great treat. If I won, I would maybe choose a family theme. Or an all girl theme. I have three girls, so something girly would be fun.

jandjhome said...

Something related to love, maybe Paris involved. I got engaged there.

Katherine said...

I have been really wanting a bathroom themed one..I've just been to busy to do it. I'd love to win one.

Annie said...

These are so cute! I love the new birthday one! Thanks for sharing! If I won, I would probably do a family one-with our names and other family/love words!

Kristina said...

If I won, I would do something inspirational. I enjoy keeping spiritual and biblical thoughts around as motivation in my recovery process. :)

MomatHome said...

LOVE the white with black one! I'm thinking one with words of inspiration

I would enjoy one with a family theme..........if I won.

Emilee said...

I would love a blue and brown polka dot birthday theme. Oh, I sure hope I win. Thanks. I love your blog.

Joleen said...

I would want a theme centered around my family. Our last name, the year we were married etc.

Stuart and Kimber said...

Wow, I wish I could think of one! I love all the ones you've made so far!

I think a bathroom one would be cute as well as an inspirational one or a family one. (for personalization, you can't beat a family one)

Thanks for so many cute ideas!

Kim said...

I LOVE your subway art! If I won...I would do a family theme with all of our names and words relating to family/love/home.

Anonymous said...

I would go with a family theme as well. It should have words that are related to us, like where we are from, anniversary etc.

Valerie said...

I would love to win this, and thanks for the other Birthday one! :) If I win I would choose an inspiring words theme!

letter gal said...

You are amazingly talented! If I were the fortunate winner, I would use surnames from family history as a reminder that we are all linked together in an eternal chain. I would want a black/white theme because I could use it wherever I wanted and could change or repaint the frame for a change in color/style.

sharon said...

I love all your subway art. If I were to win I would like to see one for Grandparent's. Thank you for all your wonderful prints.

Your art is so fabulous! I'm enjoying your creativity. If I won, I would would want a subway art all about my only child - Jack. I think a family/son/Jack theme would be great. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

scrapmebaby said...

Love the birthday art! I found your blog when I was searching for some subway art before Christmas and am so glad I stayed:)
If I won, I think I would like something bathroom-y, I am looking for inspiration to redo the girls bathroom! Or maybe family, or ...LOL, good thing I never win this kind of thing because to choose would be tough!
have a great day and thanks for sharing!

Jester said...

Hmmmmm, if I was to win, in my house everything is pretty much about the outdoors. We all hunt & fish and just generally love being outside in all the seasons. On another note, one of my most personal fav things to do is sit outside with a cocktail, by a fire, and watch the sunset. It's my "me" time that is x10 better than xanax!

I love your subway art! I can't wait for the spring one. :) And thank you for the birthday printable. Birthdays are a big deal at my house, so I'm definitely printing one off for birthday countdowns. :)

Erin said...

I love everything you do. Thanks for the Birthday Freebie. You are the best! I think that if I were to win one, I would really like
Isaiah 40:31 "For they that wait upon the Lord, etc... or a quote i know by Abraham Lincoln that says, "I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go."

I like the Birhday One. Great idea about doing a countdown on the glass.

If I won, I would like to have something that has to do with the Air Force since my hubby has been in for 17 years. Colors would be black, blue and white. Words would be ones such as patriotism, freedom, etc.

Your subway art is so creative! I love them all!

I love your subway art! I'm super excited for the Spring and Easter ones. I would have one made that has to do with love and has our last name, Olive, on it!

I'd do a family theme - I saw one on a blog that had their names and phrases they and their kids say all the time right now - kind of a snapshot of life at the moment.

Agnieszka said...

I would love one for either lacrosse or maybe something for my son's upcoming confirmation! I love your subway art!!!

Nice! I would choose a family theme! I'm making my list of words now!

I absolutely love your Subway art. I would choose a grandchildren theme w/Proverbs 17:6/Psalms 127-128. Could display this with all my pictures of my grandchildren. What a blessing! Thank you.

suzin said...

Janet, my choice would be 'F'. this is a very important letter to me as it signifies my life really. it starts with our last name and with family and friends making me who i am ... flannnelette and flowers i love love love. sharing food and fun with those i love make me a truly blessed person and it all gives me balance! :)

Anne said...

I would choose a theme to celebrate my wonderful husband and the ten years we have spent together and all the ones we still looking forward too. I think Reds, browns and cream colours would just do the trick1

Janet said...

Posting comment for Beth: Thank you for your time, and your fantastic blog. I love, love
