Kelli from Kelli's House hosts this meme. Go to her place to join in the fun! I remember Show and Tell from my kindergarten days; how I loved to have something to share. I always felt a sense of excitement when it was my turn. Today, coupled with that sense of excitement, I'm feeling a Grandma's sense of pride as I share how we display our grandchildren's photos.
I have two children: Debi and Allen. I've always said that they are part rabbit because I have SEVEN grandchildren! (Debi has four, and Allen has three.) I wanted to keep a picture of each child on display in our family room, but I don't like clutter.
I have matching 5 x 7 frames with a picture of each child framed. I enlisted Johnny's help. First, we placed each individually framed picture on the floor and laid it out in a pleasing design. We measured so that the exact placement could be transferred to the wall above our sofa. We measured around that grouping carefully, and I painted a rectangle a neutral color that would help blend in with the furnishings in the room. I choose a tan framing material and had a professional frame shop make a giant frame for me. We hung the smaller pictures inside the giant frame.
As I get a new picture, I simply place it over the one that now is in the frame; therefore, I'm always current. I love looking at my grandchildren.
