I LOVE the idea of creating wall art out of everyday somethings that have special meaning to you. It's art on a budget that brings so much character and happy memories to a room.
After a year of dating, Matt and I were apart for two years as he lived on the east coast as a missionary for our church. We weren't able to see each other or even talk on the phone, but we wrote good ol' fashioned letters back and forth for two years. I absolutely LOVE reading those letters from time to time, they are hilarious, and I'm sure we'll treasure them forever. This summer I had an idea and snagged some of my favorite stamps to make a piece of art to hang between our closets...
Voila! A couple of other ideas I want to try out...
Jenny from Little Green Notebook turned her grandmothers' buttons into a beautiful display.
Love that idea!
More great ideas from Young House Love... framing keys and photo booth strips.
I always got a kick out of a frame that hangs in my cousin's kitchen. It's a note in sloppy teenage boy handwriting that goes something like, "Mom, I broke my nose. I think we'll need to go to the doctor. Went to mow a few more lawns." Haha!
I'm not really a big crafter, but these are some DIY I could handle. I think it's so fun to have those memories saved so you can see them everyday.
