Photo Project

Last fall I was determined to put something new on the large wall above my stairway. For past 5 years it has been covered by a beautiful double wedding ring quilt that my mother and I made back in high school. But, I started worry that it would ruin the colors to leave it exposed light for so many years. So, one Sunday afternoon I took my family to the park for some new photos. Then, I went to Ikea and bought 20x20 frames (I love Ikea). Then, I used the computer to arrange and crop all the photos the way I wanted them appear on the wall. Here is the compilation I came up with. It’s been one of most rewarding home decor projects I’ve ever done. I just thought I’d share...

I LOOOOVE it! Great job. I have been doing a wall with pictures going down the basement but haven't finished it yet. You have given me the push I needed. You are amazing!! I need you to come do family pictures for me. Good work!

I loved this! I really want to do something similar...the only problem is that I don't have anywhere to do it!!

We need to get together again soon. Maybe one of these weeks I will pack the kids up and we can come up where it is cooler and play. I have been sewing a lot and it would be fun to have a friend to do it with!
