Back in July we switched our living and dining rooms. You can see the before and after here. I wanted to make the wall behind the new couch location a gallery wall. I looked around online hoping to find a place where I could upload a couple files and have nicely framed pictures returned to me at a reasonable price, but I couldn't find anything. Plus I am bad at visualizing the size of things - I know this from the super large and super tiny beads that arrive in the mail :-)
So finally I went to Michaels, who luckily had a sale going on, and picked out a bunch of frames. I already had a black framed drawing by my daughter that I wanted to incorporate. I decided to go with the same color but different styles.
I didn't necessarily want Emma's drawing in the middle, but other configurations didn't work.
Next I went through pictures and decided which ones would go into which frame. I printed a small version on regular paper so I could see it all together. This helped me order from Snapfish (also having a sale :-)) in the right size and orientation.
And now it's done! Turns out Emma had the same shirt on in a couple of the pictures, so I rearranged slightly so they were right next to each other. As you can see Griffin approves.
