Hello there family people!
Hope all is well with you and your families. There are no words to express the importance of family, so I’ll just shut up and get on with the project.
It started with the shutters. Shown here with 2 other PIPs (Project in Progress). Oh, and my beautiful Kate Cat acting like a game show model displaying all the wares.
FYI-Plow wheel is the base for a light fixture, wheely excited about that (waiting on Honey to go cut me some barbed wire). Window will be a summer deco, but I’m not sure about adding all the color to it that I’m planning, just not sure! Summer should be fun though, right? Must refrain from black & white!
I figured the shutters would be great for a photo display, so I added some frames I had and a few cheap ones. Black paint made them all brothers and sisters, similar but different.
Added dictionary pages, loving me some black & white. The blue ribbon proves it’s a good thing to step out of your comfort zone. Each letter of F A M I L Y was used to express a few fitting words. Look closely!
Finished product is now housed in front of the fireplace, but might be moved once I take the Spring pretties down.
I really like how this turned out. Using the photo corners will make it easy to change out pics. That was the hardest part of the whole thing- choosing which pics to use! Pictures and videos have become life savers for us now since we live so far away from so many of our loved ones. If you’re one of my MO folks-miss and love you all!! XOXO
I could go into a whole long spiel about how it is to live far away from family and how to NEVER take any time with them for granted, but I’m sure y’all already know that. *tears here
The folks you see are my two sons, Chayce & Bryce, and my parents, Charlie & Lauri. Also, Honey’s (aka James) two sons and daughter, Justin, Elijah, and Jamie.
The mustache photo booth was only part of the fun at our Teen Boy New Year’s Eve party. To check out the other fun and games check out one of my very first posts here:
Happy day to all! (Only 21 school days left for me-YIPEE!)
And the party shall begin:
