New Photo Wall

image

Part of this layout was already a blog feature for me. If you’ve read any of my blogs or have met me, you understand that I’m a photo nut! Moments are precious and they go so quickly, I feel the undeniable urge to preserve them.
I don’t know if it is the fact that I had free time, the fact that the kids were watching the same cartoon for the third time or if it was because I don’t have a book to read, but I was looking at this wall, feeling suddenly that it was incomplete!
No pin to reference on this one, but just something I arranged, that I found visually appealing. What do you think?

Time Stood Still

This is an idea I’ve had pinned to my decor board forever! I’ve wanted to do this for a long time, but finally found the clocks and frames I wanted for it.
I’m sad to say I can’t reference the original blogger. This is a beautiful idea, but Pinterest won’t connect me because it’s ‘spam’.
To start with, you need clocks you like, frames you like and an open expanse of wall. I found these beautiful and inexpensive clocks at Bed, Bath and Beyond. Only $9.99 a piece! That’s $1 more than Walmart’s cheapest, and it’s so much prettier! I found my frames at Walmart.
I also dug out my Cricut for this project! It’s been packed away for far too long. I had to order adhesive vinyl from Amazon, apparently no one in this area carries it in store any longer. Amazon has better deals anyway!
I had the clocks first, and I couldn’t resist setting them to the correct time right away!

Tony and I were married at 1pm, Arthur born at 1:43, Chiara at 2:35.
Then I took my Cricut and adhesive vinyl and cut out letters for:

To top everything off:
In these moments time stood still.

I chose a sweet picture of Arthur the day we brought him home.

And of course a sweet picture of Chiara when we brought her home!

I apparently suck at putting words in a straight line, but I love how this turned out!

Do you think something like this would work for you?
Happy decorating!
