As the years have gone by and I’ve been taking more of my family photos with my phone or some other digital camera, I’m finding that my photos are not being printed out like they used to. I’m very behind. Like, 2 years behind. I used to print out all of my photos, write on the back the date and who was in them, and put them in order in an album. I’m 2 YEARS behind! But I’m still determined that it will get done because I have albums full of photos from when I was a baby up until my second kid turned a year old (life got a little crazy with 2 toddlers so I blame it on that, too). Last night I had this fantastic idea that I was going to take some of my favorite photos from over the year and make a giant collage. I was stoked! They’re mostly just snaps from the past year, a lot of them just shot with my camera phone, but I still love them. And now they will all be on a 30×40 canvas in my living room. I CAN’T WAIT for this to come in! I think I’m going to do one every year (maybe not all 30×40, though) so I can always look back and remember what was going on that year (and wonder why I have photos of goats and Chino Moreno in with our family collage – LOL!). Anyways, just thought I’d share! If you’re bad at printing out photos like I am (which is one reason that I push people towards prints rather than digital – get those photos up on your walls!) this is another option out there. And if you don’t want to do the work, I’m sure I can be commissioned to get a collage put together for you if you have your photos on a disc. :)
Wonderful idea! I love collages and being able to see the entire personality of a family in a glance.
I seriously love this idea. I really want to do one but some of my most favorite photos are from my old old cell phone! This will be beautiful though hanging on the wall!
Love this! What a great way to capture the year!
Such a great idea! :) So cute
Great idea! love all the beautiful family images!
what a great idea!! you have to show us how it prints :)
What a cool idea! I’d love to see a picture of the canvas on your wall when you get it!
