patterning my world 1

I wouldn't say I'm afraid of color (although one of my favorites is grey), but I do stay away from patterns in lots of areas of my wardrobe and home decor. I guess I worry that I'll get tired of the design, so my world is full of solid color pieces. But suddenly I'm craving pattern, so I decided to do a series of posts on a few projects I've taken on to add some pretty patterns to my surroundings. The first is these photos + frames.

I've been meaning to frame some of the photos we had taken back in September, and one day last week I was headed to buy some 50% off frames from Joann when my partner in crime had other ideas (she wanted to nap). So I rethought my plans for framing and figured out a way to use the frames we already had in that spot, along with some scrapbooking paper I use for card making. It was fun to choose which patterns to use, just like choosing fabric for a patchwork project. Before, these floating frames displayed all the temple and museum tickets we collected in Japan. It really brightened up the wall, and they are a nice distraction from all those CDs.


  1. Esther says your baby looks like Tom Cuise's baby!
    I love the mats!

  2. Cute! I like how you have three different patterns, too. Love it!

  3. The pics look great! I'm loving all of your crafty ideas. Wish I had the time to play around too. Hope you are all well.


Tell me what you think! I love to read comments.
