Seriously - how did they know? My girls are in years 1 and 3 at school and they aren't rote learning the times tables like we did when we were kids. So I've been thinking about printing them out and sticking them up in a high-traffic area. But I couldn't find a cute design. And then I get an email from Love Mae - ta da!!

If you're anything like me, you've got a stash of wall art that you'd like to swap out more often, but the hassle of taking down the frame, dealing with those hard little metal pieces at the back, and getting the positioning right makes it too much of a headache.
