Art?

Justin came home this morning from duty with coffee and breakfast in hand! I love him so much. I'm so lucky that I have him and its not just because he deals with my love of Starbucks.

Today I'm doing an art project...if you can even call it that. I'm going through the 1400 pictures that Justin brought home. He didn't take all of them, in fact I think he took most of them off of other peoples cameras to tell you the truth. But all the same he has them. I'm going to take 2 pictures from every country he went to (no people can be in them, just things they saw), put the date on one and the country on the other then frame them. I think it will be a neat project that I hope to do for every deployment. My only problem now is where to put all of them. I was thinking on the first floor right when you walk in, or I have tons of places on the second floor that I think they would look good. Do I put them behind the couch on the wall? In my kitchen? Or do I enjoy them to myself and put them on the third floor where the bedrooms are? OK I doubt I will put them by the bedrooms but still it has gone through my mind.

Wish me luck and hope I don't go crazy! Picking just two pictures from each port is going to be hard. Everything was so beautiful.

Such a cool idea. What size pictures are you printing? Are you going to use a frame with two openings or two separate frames?

The pictures are going to be matted in side by side frames (2 to a frame) and I think they are 3.5x5.

I finished it and they look AMAZING! I know of a few people who are now going to copy my idea....stalkers!

Do what I did and put everything Navy/work related for Justin downstairs. So when people walk in they can see what he has accomplished. Every NEW person that walked in my house always stopped and looked at everything on the wall before they even made it up the second floor lol.
