Maybe it's just me but I feel like when we just had one child it was hard to do anything, but now that we have 2 kids I find that I want to do everything (and try to do more with the girls). I don't know if that makes sense at all, but one specific thing I've been trying to be better with is photos. I wasn't great about getting family photos done when Sheila was an infant, but I really want to make a point to have family photos taken at least once a year.
We had some photos taken this past spring and I was so happy with them. My friend Jill did a really great job and I knew I didn't want to waste any time getting these printed, framed, and hung up on the wall. My prints showed up last week and I went out to AC Moore to get my frames.
(For any local friends, Jill is doing mini-sessions in the fall. They are a half hour long and perfect if you have little ones. Jill is awesome!!)
I'm SO happy with how this turned out. I've used these specific frames from AC Moore a few times and was really pleased with them. They are so easy to use - the glass just pops out of the frame and pops back in and they are only $8.00 (and I didn't even have a coupon - shame on me). Plus, I really love the slim line of black with the white matted photos.
Not only am I thrilled to have these on the wall but the girls love to look up at the photos as well. We still haven't really done much to this room but it's slowly coming along.
Here is another shot for transparency purposes of this wall - there are toys everywhere!
Our goal eventually is to have built-in shelves installed on either side of the fireplace. Oh and that pile of coloring supplies that you can see to the far left has been rectified for the time being.
I've been on an organizing rampage with a first birthday celebration coming up. I'll share some photos next week.
How are you with printing and framing photos? I'd love to know any photo organizing strategies.
