A New Idea Taking Shape

For a few months now, I've been wanting to get into working with a part of my house that's in great need of a fix-up.  I have hundreds of photos on my computer that are of my family and animals; and I'd love to be able to have some of them in a public album in my house and not on facebook.  

So, what I've begun doing is buying and finding picture frames that will become the album of my family's life.  They'll be in three different colours and all types of sizes as well to make this wall collage appear random - and yet it's not.  So, far, I've bought 5 frames from K-Mart at a great deal and I'm going to look through my photos over the last few years and pick out the ones that are going into this wall album.
Then, I'll be figuring out the sizes I want to each of them to match the frame they'll be going into and then, I'll put them all onto a blank usb stick with the size I want in a notebook.  Then, every now and then, I'll be getting together some of the photos I want done, going to K-Mart and getting them printed up and hanging the photos within the week.  
This project should take until around October or December to complete; and the whole wall of my stair well will be climbing with an album of my immediate family and pets.  Hopefully by then, it will have a life and storyline of its own.  Have you ever done this kind of thing?  If so, do you have any pointers you could give me to make this easier for me?  Until my next post, keep creating!


  1. I need to do something with all my photos, but never get around to it. This sounds like a great idea! Let us know how it turns out.

    1. I will. I'm only at the planning stages of it... the frames being picked out and the photos being chosen - you know - otherwise, it'll take a bit of sorting and money to get the rest of it all together.

      When it's finished - on the way through - I'll post some photos onto the link on the sidebar so you can keep track. :)
