Parent’s Promise

24 weeks ago I found this gem:

Parent’s Promise by Graphic Designer Joel Felix.

I wrote Joel and asked him if he was selling this beauty of a graphic.

I really wanted to hang it in my home.

He wrote back and said he was working on preparing {see video at end of post} the silkscreen print and he would let me know when they were available for purchase.

As soon as I received his email I purchased a copy.

It was only $20.

Isn’t it awesome!!!  It’s so true.  I wanted to have it displayed in our home where my kids could be reminded of this on a daily basis.  It is in our dining area/breakfast area where we eat the majority of our meals.  I remember hearing them read it out loud for the first time after hanging it on the wall.  My Son shouts, “You’re going to stalk me?” lol  Honestly, they probably won’t really ‘get’ it until they are parents themselves.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let me give you a heads up…the print size is 23″x6″.

You will not find a frame to fit the print exactly unless you have one custom made.  I didn’t want to spend custom made money.

Instead, I went to Hobby Lobby when their frames were 50% off and found this one.  It measures 31″x13″.  It has a cream mat for three 5×7 photos.  At the store, I took out the print and placed it over the 3 matted section and it covered it perfectly.  Voila!  Framed print for a fraction of what it would have cost me to have it custom framed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mine is 79/200 {hard to see the penciled 79/200 at the bottom from the photo}

Don’t worry, according to his website today, you can still order your very own copy of Parent’s Promise.

Disclaimer: Joel did not pay me to write this post. { He is welcome to after being inundated with orders if he would like. 😉 }

  1. Thank you for sharing Shan! It looks great framed!

  2. He can thank you for at least one sale – I absolutely LOVE this and I, too, will hang it where my boys can see it daily. And thanks for the tip on the framing. 🙂

    Once again your frugality and creativity shine! Excellent job. Hope it works with the kids. Funny which part of it J picked out to be concerned about. Love, Mom

  4. Love it! I’m going to order soon!

  5. Stopping by to say Hi and see what lovely things you are doing. LOVE the sign. Especially the “I will stalk you” …my 13 year old daughter with Facebook doesn’t like me Facebook stalking her. I tell her its my job.
    I should get the sign to make it legitimate :).
