Picture frame wall

whole wall

As I mentioned in my house goals for this years I wanted to get my photo frames filled. I had this narrow wall that I wanted to cover with photos, then my Aunt C. gave me the “FAMILY” photo frame for my college graduation, so I decided to use it as the anchor piece. I have been working on it for some time and am almost done. Five of the smaller frames are done, one I still need to pick which photos to put in the last one. I also want to switch a photo in the anchor frame.

In addition to photos I added text to the top 3 three frames to make them even more meaningful. All three are from songs.

In the main anchor frame, I have the text to a song “Family Picture” by Jim Jordan and Steve Wick. From the Living in God’s House: Ultimate ...

Praise 2 CD fro
m Awana. I think it is now available on ITunes.


In the top, left frame I have older photos of me with my family who lives states away, including my Grandmother who is now home in heaven. For it I put a quote from Michael W. Smith’s song “Pray for Me” in it. It’s a song about parting, being apart, the section I used speaks of our lives as a tapestry, so I found a tapestry photo to use as background.


In the top right frame I have photos of the last 2-3 years with a quote from Steven Curtis Chapman’s song “Miracle of the Moment,” so I used a clock background for it. It talks about viewing our here and now as a gift from God.

it's time

The three filled frames below the main frame are each devoted to family, Awana, and my graduations.

As you can see, I still have one frame I’m trying to finalize, I’m using it to hold ideas for it or modifications to the other frames while I wait to get around to it.
