{Trendy Tuesday} Subway Art: Halloween edition

So, has anyone else noticed all the subway art that's all the rage right now?

I have and I love it!

Here are a few of my printable faves for the upcoming Halloween season:

The girls at eighteen25 have this freebie download. And, they have it in a variety of colors, too!

All Things Simple has another version (with multiple color choices).

Bobbi posted this one for free download:

And, That's What {Che} Said posted this one:

SO CUTE! I love them all!

You can print these in all different sizes and use them in a variety of ways. I have put them in picture frames as holiday decor, printed them smaller and used them as seasonal cards or as a cute way to decorate the front of a plain gift bag. Print them even smaller and they can be used as gift tags!

See? The list goes on and on!

And, here are some of my favorite "real art" pieces.

Green Eyed Girl Crafts:

Jen from TT&J made this cutie:

Landee See, Landee Do makes these art prints for sale:

Poppies at Play made this one and even shows you step by step how to do it yourself! Yay for picture directions!

So, there you go!

I hope you like this little collection of Halloween subway art!

Now go, have fun and play with something new!

{Made it Monday} Lunch box notes!'s been awhile.

A long while.

Let's just jump right back in to the cuteness, okay?

We all know that cuteness is what calls me here, to the dear old internet.

Anyhoo - it's been "back-to-school" time around here for - ohhhhh - let's say a few weeks. It could be a few weeks or a month and a half, but we'll just say weeks, since that could incorporate both. Sound good?


I love to put little notes in my kids' lunch boxes. I'm just cheesy like that. I can't help it.

I've made some of my own before. But, I like to branch out and not do the same thing every day, week to week, year to year.

Maybe I'm just ADHD like that? I don't know.

I had all intentions of making a new set for the start of this year, but as I began to look online, I realized there are so many already available that other - far more creative and wonderfully talented - peeps have made.

So - no. I didn't make anything for this {Made It Monday} post, but here's a few lunch box notes that I've found in all my travels around the 'net. I thought some of you might like to have them, too!

Chickabug has some cuties - available in girl and boy colors.

All for the Boys has some uber cool joke notes for the little dudes in your life. These passed the really high standard set by my "almost too big" kid. As long as it has a joke on it, it's okay. By the way - if you have boys, you MUST check out All For the Boys in it's entirety. It. Is. Awesome.

Makoodle also has some cute notes.

Parentella has some fruit-themed notes that are super cute! And, they have blank ones, too!

For the littles in your life, you could try these from Paper Pomegranates! So. Stinking. Cute. Seriously.

The Tip Junkie has a free sheet of lunch notes and a "pick your lunch" check sheet! Love that!

Fresh Picked Whimsy has the cutest little doodles I ever did see. She also has other reeeeeeeally cute downloads, including lunch box notes, more lunch box notes, Christmas tags and other fun stuff. You have to check it out!

Brown Paper Packages has chatty lunch notes, perfect for the older kiddos.

And finally, oliebollen has some adorable little notes. Just click to download the cuteness straight to your computer.

So, there you go! Have fun! Be sure to save the files to your computer once you have them on your screen. These are all PDF files and can easily be printed from any home computer!

And remember - these are only A FEW of what I found out there! If you do an internet search for "Lunchbox Notes," you'll find 400 different options. There are some that are specific for holidays, birthdays, special events, big tests, etc.

Check out my Lunch Notes Pinterest Board for more fun options!

Now GO! Put some love in a little (or big) kid's lunch box today!

Happy Monday!
