Free-for-all Friday~Fun Filled Frames!

Here is the best way to add your personal touch in decorating your walls. It can work on a small or large wall. When decorating, it should be a direct reflection of your family and your personality. It creates compliments and conversations which makes your pictures more meaningful. It also helps you see and remember all the blessings you have in your life on a daily basis. "Every good and perfect gift is from above.." James 1:17.

Above are a couple of picture frame arrangements that I have in my home that I love. First, my husband and I love to take pictures when we go on vacation. We then come home and make art work out of those photographs with the photo software on our computer. After we finish with the editing, we go to the local drugstore or Target and spend a couple of dollars to have this personal artwork through out our home. The three pictures on the main wall in our living room are pictures that we took on a trip to Savannah that we took together before our son was born. We came home, chopped and cropped the pictures and then picked the color scheme.

Above are three frames that are upstairs in our spare room where I do all my sewing. I have a true love for fabric this allows me to see some of my favorite fabrics plus one of the biggest blessings in my life (my son in a picture taken on one of his first trips to the beach).

We have also made a habit of framing posters from our favorite concerts and events. This was a poster that I received while doing one of my internships in Wilmington, NC. When we moved, I found it rolled up and thought how great it would be to splurge and have it framed and hung in our living area. Why spend hundreds on others' art when you can create your own?!?!?

Feel free to share some of your art ideas and creations with us. Happy Friday!

I love using frames to dress up items that are special to our heart. My favorite example is a gift we gave to all the grandparents and some special friends and family members one Christmas. My daughter was 13 and had been assigned to write a Psalm for her Sunday School class. The result was a beautiful word picture of her young christian heart. I had her handwrite it with care onto a piece of stationary and then had it copied. We then went to the discount store and purchased 'fancy' gold frames that came prematted. The Psalm went into the frame and now when I visit those family members and friends homes, I often see her Psalm on their walls.
