My Project

So,this is what I've been working on:

I got the idea from Abby's blog A Feathered Nest (she has so many great ideas). I ordered the vinyl Tiffany at A Word to the Wise (lots of beautiful projects - but I had a hard time contacting her through her website -I have her email if you're interested). I took the pictures and printed them on my HP photo printer. I got the frames (with mats) at Costco - they were marked as 11 x 14 but the outer edge measures at 14 x 17. The pictures are 8 x 10. I am so, so happy with how it turned out. YAY!!!


Thanks for all your input on the pictures...I already knew that #1 was my favorite - but I wanted to see what you all thought. One nice thing is that because I printed them myself I can change them out as better pictures come along. For now though, I love them!

that is by far my favorite kids wall and quote. Someday I might have to use this. Maybe when one little one becomes little oneS. I seriously LOVE that wall!!! It helps that you have such cute kids in the first place!
Great project. Thanks for sharing!

I've been wanting to make a wall like this with my kids. The problem is that I have kid, only one and the effect is just not the same. Love it!!

Mandy, I knew you would come up with something great, and I just have to say how much I love it! I've had pictures of my girls up on my wall in a very similar way and I knew I wanted to do vinyl around it somehow, but I could never find the right thing. This is PERFECT! Thanks so much for sharing, it looks great! I bet you are so excited about it :o)

You're totally awesome, thought I'd remind you, just in case you forgot.

BEAUTIFUL!!! I just might have to put that on my wall too! lol Perfect GBH quote, much better than the usual vinyl quotes you find out there.

Ah, I'm just so amazed!

Love it! Someday I will have to post what I have done with my kids on my wall. Similar but different!

Emily said...

I've seen this before, but I love your execution of it. It is beautiful, and what a powerful message. How do you think this will make your children feel as they grow older? Pretty well loved, I think.

What a cool idea...I don't think I will be able to fill up my wall as quickly as you and Tony did though. You two have such a beautiful family, I am so happy for you both. '
p.s. I thought about you guys on V-Day, such a great anniversary day.

I want to catch up with you so bad! Josh starts school again on Monday, but has next friday off...what's your school schedule like??
