After numerous emails and requests for a frameable print of my popular blog posts: 25 Things I want My Daughter to Know and 25 Things I want My Son to Know – I’ve finally created them! I am so excited! With the help of dRE from Solid Art Collective on Etsy, I have taken the words and a few images from both lists and put them on an 8.5″x11″ print and an 11″x14″ print to be framed, hung, or given as a gift. The prints are simple, classy, and neatly done. Details and pictures below.
