What's a Christmasgram? I want one!

Happy Sunday friends!  The sun is shining, the birds are singing and while it's still in the 30s in lovely New England, SPRING is finally here! 

I talked a bit last week about arranging your family photos in a grouping that looks cohesive, makes an impact, and delights you every day.  More on this topic in the coming week.  Today I want to show you my newest find in the wonderful and amazing world of etsy.  (If you  haven't heard of etsy before, let me introduce you to a fabulous shopping site for all things handmade and unique.  Beware - you might become addicted to this site!  It is a great place to find unusual gifts for every budget.)

I am coveting these beautiful frames by Jennifer at Hope Studios.  They are handmade and can be customized!  Aren't they so original and different?


I love the idea of one of these right smack dab in the middle of a photo wall arrangement. Imagine one of these babies in the center and your other framed pics around it - symmetrically or asymmetrically - or place the focal point frame to the side and arrange the other pictures on the top, bottom and one side of it. oooooo the possibilities!


Some of Jennifer's Memory Frames are 16x16 and 20x20, and could easily make an impact on their own.  I can think of at least three pathetic and unloved spots in my house for one of these: 
 
Wouldn't this one be so precious in a baby's room?


I think these would make great gifts for a baby, an engagement or wedding, or, say, Mother's Day (hint, hint.)

In addition to creating these beauties and being a mom, Jennifer also has a fab blog full of great tutorials and inspiration!  You can check out Jennifer's blog here.  Now go get some coffee....between etsy and Jennifer's blog you might be here for a while!  Enjoy the day.
