hello photos

one of my new year's resolutions for '10 (ok, the only one. i'm not a new year's resolution kind of person.) is to take more photos, print more photos out, make albums, and display them. i used to be really good about taking photos all the time; printing them, and making scrapbooks. the past few years, however, i just haven't done it. i guess i have a little bit more going on these days than i did when i was in college ;) 

anyway, reveling in my 'slow season' for work, this morning i spent about an hour going through photos from our wedding and other highly important moments that happened to have been photographed (i will get better, i will!) and sending them to my local target photo center to be printed for me to pick up! 

enter the next project: frames for those photos. photo frames are one of those things in life that 9 times out of 10, i just feel are way too expensive for what they really are - wood and glass. sooo, being the little DIY lady that i am, i thought i'd makeover a few from the thrift store (and a few i picked up for $5 each at target!).

here are a couple i got from the thrift store for around a dollar each (check out those creepy twins who are too old to be sitting on santa's lap):

i began priming the frames with a spray primer, then came back inside to spray down the glass for the frames (something that's necessary when you get frames from a thrift store!)
something i've figured out is that it's nice to lay the glass down on a wet towel to keep it from sliding around, or to keep fingerprints off - and to keep your fingers safe from the glass!
this is another one of the thrift store frames i bought and sprayed white - i did a little studding on it!
anyway, here are my newly framed photos:

i got this pretty big frame from target (it holds an 8 by 10 photo), and it's a photo of jordan with my brother from our wedding. this one hangs in our bathroom. by the way, our photographer was my very talented friend, mr. kyle hale. he is amazing! his work is my favorite thing about our wedding. 
here are the once-ugly ones from the thrift store, with new photos in them (can you tell i love photos of our brothers?)
a photo of me and my padre dancing at our wedding: (frame from target)




and the studded frame from the thrift store that i painted white and the wavy frame from target with a photo of our favorite feline friend!

there we go! a good start, at least...i plan to do more though! what are your new year's resolutions?

  6. There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.

    Learning how to style bracelets for men is as simple as picking one color and building off of it. Again, you'll exactly know how this works if you follow our website. If you already have a wristwatch, check out the color of the face. If it's silver, shop men's bracelets that have silver in them as opposed to gold; if the watch face is colored, find some men's bracelets that have the same tone. Then, combine it together for an effortless masterpiece.

    If you don't have a luxury wristwatch, now is the time to get one. Not only are they incredibly practical, but they'll enhance your dapper wardrobe within seconds - pun intended. While you can layer your wrist with all kinds of men's bracelets, adding a wristwatch will separate the styles and add dimension into the look.

  15. Concrete barrier blocks or jersey barriers are a simple and effective way to secure your empty premises against unwelcome visits from trespassers, vandals, fly tippers and travellers. Concrete security barriers may be placed across the access to a property, or around the perimeter to block vehicular access. We provide concrete sleepers in either 1.5m, 2.5m or 3m lengths, which can be bolted together with our state of the art interlocking system to create a virtually impenetrable concrete barrier.

    Temporary concrete road barriers are a useful tool in traffic management, to safely control traffic flows. Concrete safety barriers are a common sight in car parks, used to define entry and exit lanes and to protect traffic from straying into oncoming lanes. Concrete road barriers may be used to secure building sites and road works, protecting both the passing public and workforce within.

    The integral properties of concrete barricades make them the safety barrier of choice in a number of scenarios. The immense weight of a concrete step barrier can be used in earth retention to safely prevent landslides. Concrete safety barriers can provide a solid barrier around water hazards or other dangerous areas.

    As concrete barrier suppliers, SafeSite Facilities are able to deploy concrete security blocks in a matter of hours, to ensure your site remains safe and protected. Our concrete barriers may be personalised with your company logo to maintain a strong presence, or enhanced with the addition of anti climb fencing for additional security.
