*I preface this post by emphatically stating that I am not a crafty person. At all. Yes, I have a scrapbooking room, but I have not scrapped in almost two years, and scrapping does not make one crafty. Just as being in Victoria's Secret does not make one Heidi Klum. You know...
This is what I do with all the many photo cards we receive each Christmas. I refuse to throw them away, but what good are they doing anyone tucked away in some dark drawer or a forgotten album? And let's not even speak of the fact that we've all spent the big bucks to show off our family's image each year. Even cheap photo cards are not cheap!
I take each card and trim the superfluous stuff, leaving only the beauty of the face(es) smiling back at me. Then each picture is stuck into one of these nifty little French memo boards. This one is in my bathroom. Look at all those famous bloggers up there--I'd list and link 'em, but I'm too lazy. Feel free to out yourselves in the comment section!
This one is in my laundry room. And the deal is this: send a photo card and you get your picture put up for an entire year. But the best part is that not only do I lovingly glance at y'all while brushing my teeth or separating whites and brights, I also pray for the families represented in each photo. And I thank God for each of you. I do!
Now I'm off to make a birdcage built out of popsicle sticks. (Quick, Lizzy--what movie is that from???) It's unchartered territory, indeed.
*I am going to be bold here and ask you praying peeps to lift up my dearest Kori, please. Because I love her and she needs comfort, strength, and healing in her life right now, and all I can do is pray.
