For Christmas this year if you’ll remember I made pretty much every gift. The one that was a HUGE surprise were the pictures I made for my cousin O, my cousin E, my aunt and my brother. Basically I took either their first name or last name and drove around in search of those letters, took a picture, printed them out in black and white and placed them into the frame. The only frame I could find was a five slot one from Target.
Thank god for Target on-line this will help explain… this is the frame I purchased for each of them:
and here are some of the pictures I took of everyday items or letters from signs around the tri-city area. I think they were a big hit. Now if only I could find a 6 photo frame then I could do my own last name cause I really want one.
