OK, I said earlier that I would talk about the big photo project I was working on when I was finished! I'm finished!
To make a long story short, I won a gift certificate for a ginormous photo display thingy at a webinar for professional photographers. It's actually supposed to be a big advertisement display thing for my photography business, but since I'm sort of on hiatus from the photography business, I have nothing to advertise and nowhere to advertise it so I'm modifying it a bit and it's going to become a mural on the wall in the newly redone playroom. It's ridiculously huge, 72 inches by 53 inches. It's kind of like a big poster but made out of heavy fabric, I think. Honestly, I'm not even sure exactly what it is. All I know is that it's free and I'll take it. :)
I have a big blank wall in the playroom that I wanted to do something fun with. I started out wanting to put a few cute canvases of the kids on the wall, but that didn't seem any different than what I have on the walls in the rest of my house. Then I thought I'd frame some silly candids of the kids and put those down there. That sounded better, but still not super exciting.
Then I won the big display thing and I decided to use it to do a big mural of silly family photos. Over time the idea kept getting sillier and sillier in my head, lol. I decided that I wanted to do something so silly down there that every time the kids went into the playroom it would make them laugh. Who doesn't want a playroom that makes them laugh just by walking in the door, right?! :)
So this afternoon we had a really silly photo shoot, faces were made, giggles were had by all and we came up with quite a silly creation.
Are you ready for this?!:) This is what will be hanging on our playroom wall in the basement as soon as they finish making it! :) Full size it's thirty 8x10's!
