What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

It's about time

As good as I am about taking pictures all the time, I am absolutely, positively HORRIBLE at printing them.

I never do.


And this, to me, is very sad. Because my kids are too little to check out my blog right now but I know how much they LOVE to see pictures of themselves.

So I made it my goal to get some pictures up on the wall but I knew I would have to get creative with framing because picture frames were not in the budget (sheesh are they EXPENSIVE at the store!)

I haven't found any frames at yard sales lately (but mental note: even when they are gaudy I am henceforth snatching them up when they are just cents. Every time.) so I had to make due with what I had. But none of the ones I had coordinated and many were...black.

I think photography looks very professional in black frames, but black just really isn't my...thing. (Though it may HAVE to be at some point-as many black frames as I've accumulated.) So....I opted for white and then I went scouring through the barns. And found some old window panes that would be just the ticket.

I painted one white and (since glass costs money) I simply printed out my pictures and laminated them with my laminator. Have I mentioned lately how I love my laminator??

Hung on the wall with my side of the road coffee table, it made for a nice entryway decoration. But. The empty coffee table was a magnet for JUNK when we came in and the wall was a bit too sparse for my liking.

So I added a few things....

I love being able to see my loved ones on the wall. WHY did it take me so long to do this?!?!
