Over the weekend I decided to dive in on some framing projects I have wanted [needed] to get done for a while now. Having a lot of photo booth photo strips from parties and weddings lying all about on our dresser and tucked into the mirror in our bedroom I knew those needed to get framed or displayed in a better way. They were getting bent, warped and all around dusty. I wasn’t sure how I was going to display them, so I took off on a trip to Jo-Ann‘s and Michaels. Unfortunately, the Jo-Ann’s near my home doesn’t really have a frame selection (about 4 different frames does not count in my book), so I then headed a few streets over to Michaels. They had a great frame selection! This past weekend they were having a great BOGO Free promotion. Perfect! I needed two frames, so this was going to save me a lot! (Check out the sale and make sure to change the ad to your local store – Going on until the 3rd of January!)
I was able to find two different floating frames that worked perfectly for both projects. The first project I completed held all of our photo booth strips! I think it turned out great! I was really hoping for a brown frame, as that would match our bedroom decor a bit better, but all they had in the 12 x 12 frame was black. I can’t wait to hang it in our room! Lots of fun memories from great Christmas parties and a wedding with friends!
The second frame I procured was a larger frame to hold a BoomTown! Core Values letterpress poster. I really wanted to ensure that there was [no more] damage done to my copy of the poster. I really love that I used a floating frame for this poster so that all the beautiful letterpress indentations can be seen. I hold the BoomTown! Core Values close to my heart. Being a Boomer from the early days I was privileged to help create and build those values and help make BoomTown! what it is today. I’m going to keep this poster where I can see it regularly as I take on a new adventure* at the start of 2015 so that I can embody these core values in order to make it back where I want to be in a mere 13 weeks!
What are some things you have lying around that you want to display properly for the new year?
* More about my new adventure to come soon!
