Ever since I started photography seriously about 15 years ago during the days where only films were available, I would make sure to get all my photos developed and kept them in the albums. I have so many photos taken during my flying days that I love how I managed to capture the moments in the countries that I visited.
But ever since I switched to a DSLR, I’ve never taken the time to print them and display them anywhere in my home, except for a few or keep them in albums. There’s the downside of using a DSLR, for me. I kept them all in my hard disc each time I took tons of photos and only printed them if I need to use them for my scrapbooking projects. I know I should be displaying them all over my home to remind me of those moments when they were captured.
So now, I embarked on a personal project, to make sure I put them up where I can see them. And seeing them on the wall makes me smile and I’m loving it! It makes me happy whenever I look at those photos of my family and I. I know I should have done this a long time ago but it’s never too late. Now that we got our walls re-painted with a new coat after living here for close to 10 years, the home is a much better place to hang out for us!
Here are some of the photos framed up by me. Frames are all from Ikea, except for the huge wood mounted canvas, which I got someone to print it at a steal of a price! Thanks to my friend’s recommendation to a printer.
I have not completed putting more photos as I’ve ran out of frames, so I need to visit Ikea again to get more of those Ribba small frames and bigger ones too. I simply love Ikea frames, they’re inexpensive and looks really good. I’m also planning to do this in Ethan’s room, framing up some of his photos from the time he was a baby until now. Just wanna make sure he sees himself growing over the years and have good memories of those years.
And just a couple of weeks ago I bought a wall decal from a local site, Creative Wall Decal, which I think is completely perfect for my scraproom and finally put them up today. And I’m so loving how it brightens my room and makes me smile each time I look at it.
I am so over the top with the birdcage!! *laugh*
I think there are a few local sites that you can check them out but this one has more choices and their designs are absolutely awesome!
We also indulged Ethan with his favorite dinosaurs wall stickers which we ordered from Decal8 from Australia. They have a complete range of adorable wall stickers for kids and you may want to want to get them for your kids. I went bonkers when I saw them that I wanted to buy everything! *laugh* Just too bad his room has only 4 walls.
Some of the designs can be found at a local site Pinnacle Wall Arts but their selections are limited as compared to Decal8 but it saves you on the shipping fee.
And this T-Rex is Ethan’s pet, which Daddy got for him when they watched Walking With Dinosaurs during the school break in December. Our friend is seriously crazy about dinosaurs, you just have to ask him what kind of dinosaurs he’ll tell you all their names! He can pronounce the dinosaurs’ names better than he can pronounce Mommy’s name! *laugh* Really!
Ok, that’s just about it for today. Just wanted to let you know what I’ve been up to and busy about lately. I seem to have so little time to want to do more things but I just have to make do with whatever time I have left to myself, on top of family and work.
Hope you’re having a great week so far.
