Today's post idea was a total experiment.
Somethings happen out of necessity and necessity only.
This is one of those things.
I had bought these HUGE frames at Ikea a while ago. A looong while ago actually, considering they were still empty as of a few days ago. I had hung them up above our couch in the family room with big plans of finding/taking some adorable photos of my kids to put in them.
And there they sat. You know how it goes.
I was fine with them until I started decking the halls like a banshee. Then suddenly the RIBBA RIBBA RIBBA going across there wasn't doing it for me any more (sorry about the crookedness of those frames... my boys play football there--the couch is the touchdown-- and, needless to say, those get rattled a lot. Maybe I don't even notice it anymore? That's sad).
Since I hadn't had a chance to take any photos of my kids I decided to try something. I created some subway art-ish images in Photoshop using Christmas song lyrics and had them printed 20x30 at Costco ($8.99 each! Can you believe how cheap enlargements are these days? Mind boggling).
I'm not in love with the middle one but they are sure better than RIBBA, right?
Those songs are in my head a lot now, as you can imagine.
If you'd like these images I created them in all sizes... 5x7, 8x10, 16x20 and 20x30 and you can download them in this Box.net collaborative folder HERE.
Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
