People ask me all the time “how on earth do you display all your photos? You must have thousands….” Actually I have hundreds of thousands (not even exaggerating). Simply put, I don’t.
I choose a canvas every year from our annual family photo session and then I also have a huge assortment of other photos that I display as canvases and framed prints. All of the other print worthy photos get put in leather bound albums and stored away. I’m not a scrap-booker so the ones that don’t get put into leather albums get put into photo boxes. I always think “some day” I’ll have time to organize them and make beautiful books for my kiddos, but realistically I’m probably just going to have dozens of boxes of photos by the time they graduate high school. I’m a busy working mama so I’m realistic in my expectations of myself when it comes to photos. Don’t even ask how far I got along with my kids’ baby books. 😉 Let’s just say that I didn’t even bother buying my youngest a book because I knew it’d just be one more that I ‘failed’ at.;)
I do have to say that I’m glad I’ve taken the time to print my images and display them as best as possible. I love looking at my walls and seeing how my kiddos have all grown over the years.
This is just a small sampling of what’s on my walls. My mom might be the only one to care to see this but for some reason I wanted to share today….
