In the past year or so I’ve been finding that wall art from Etsy is very satisfying to buy. I’ve bought several things for the kids for Christmas and birthdays: not only does it last longer than a toy (sometimes I fantasize about them decorating their adult homes with it later on), we REALLY DON’T NEED MORE TOYS. And whenever I’m in the kids’ rooms I feel happy seeing the picture all over again. Two favorites: Little Dinosaur (for dinosaur-loving Henry’s birthday) and a custom name portrait from WirlyGrrl (for Edward, for Christmas).
Here are some “seasonal” Etsy prints that might be a fun way to commemorate a child’s first year of school:
My Favorite Book is Blue print by TrafalgarSquare on Etsy (photo from the shop). My sister-in-law bought several prints (including this one) from this shop, and when I saw them I was like “???” and she was all “!!!” and I replied “!!!” and then I went home and added the store to my favorites and that brings us up to date. The greeting card version of this print would be great with a teacher gift.
Our Book Club print by by TrafalgarSquare on Etsy (photo from the shop). This is the one I think I want to order.
Bus Stop print by Bumble Jack on Etsy (photo from the shop). This really captures for me the essence of WAITING.
Rooster School Bus print by Matte Stephens on Etsy (photo from the shop). I love the old-fashioned style of these pictures.
September’s First Day print by Sarah Jane Studios on Etsy (photo from the shop). This looks exactly like September to me.
