My family and I moved into our house over six years ago and it wasn’t until last week that we hung a photo gallery on our family room wall. Six years. And it was actually my husband’s idea!
We have artwork and photos around our house, don’t get me wrong. But an actual true photo gallery, we have never had. And I (like many of you) have THOUSANDS of pictures.
Just over a year ago when Oprah came calling, some friends and I hurried to hang a few great shots. Yes, it took a visit from the Oprah show to get me to enlarge, frame and hang my photos. I vowed I would take that lead and run with it. Did I mention that was over a year ago? And in case you’re freaking out about my Oprah comment (really long story short) my clip was never on the show and although I made it to the show, I was never on the show either. You can exhale now.
Back to our photo gallery; I LOVE it. And I can’t believe how easy it was to put together and hang.
Consider this your gentle nudge, your sisterly reminder that your images were taken not only for YOU but to share. Honor your yourself, your family and your creative talent and pick a few of your favorites to get up on your walls.
What’s the rush? The Aaron Brothers Semi-Annual 1 Cent Sale is happening right now (buy one, get one for a penny)! It’s one of my favorite stores of all time anyway but when the sale is happening I’m giddy with possibilities! And what perfect timing with all this creating we’re doing around here, don’t you think?? Even if you’re wanting to branch out and dabble in painting (like we’re doing around here) the canvasses are also buy one, get one for a penny too. Even my kids are excited. No, I’m not kidding.
In other words, there’s nothing stopping you from creating your own gallery!
If you’ve already got some photos framed and on display then you’re ahead of the game and in that case, you’ve got to share what you’ve got. What photographic treasures have you surrounded yourself with? Inspire us!
