I was tired of this generic IKEA art. (excuse my doorbell) This is the "hallway" (its more square) between our bedrooms and bathroom and the dining room/ studio.I had seen a generic heart made out of polaroids in the window @ fossil around Valentines. So this had been stewing in the back of my head for awhile. I downloaded and used a free polaroid program and converted a bunch of pictures of us into polaroids. It makes them a little off center sometimes and makes the colors more like a polaroid too. I waited for Walgreens print 25 free, and printed 25 free. Britton printed 25 free for me too :) They ended up with the top and bottom correct, but the sides were not right, so I cut white cardstock and used a glue stick to make side borders.

It takes up a much larger part of the wall and it's so fun to see all of those fun memories and experiences all the time. :)

I tried to used double stick tape, but quickly realized that wouldn't work, so I used a small rectangle of foam mounting tape to hang each picture. The tape and my time were the only costs : )

Yay for being married to my best friend!

Happy Graduation!

A kid @ school and I had our schools "party" together. He was 7, I was 27 :) We had Lego cupcakes. It was awesome!! They had lego rings... :) His mom had hot glued one lego to a large flat ring and then stuck a few more legos on top. It made for lots of fun!!May always seems to soar by with weddings, graduations, and recitals, spring concerts, etc. I had 2 graduations that needed gifts. :) My sweet SIL (Britton's littlest sister) graduated from High School- she's headed to Knoxville, TN and I'll help craft stuff for her dorm room later in the summer. I mad her a gathered clutch ala Noodlehead. I loved how it turned out and have a few ideas up my sleeve for more gathered stuff.
A friend from work has a daughter who's headed to UK, I don't know the graduate well so I went with UK pillowcases :) I used a tutorial and they went together pretty easily. :)

Happy Father's Day! Maybe I can get caught up soon, Blogger was giving me grief this week.
