I come from a family of five girls and when my mom asked me to develop multiple copies of an old photo that included three of my oldest sisters, I asked her if I could have a little fun with my sister Terri's photo before she gave it to her.
You see Terri is the "middle child" in our family and has a heart of gold. She was diagnosed 14 years ago with multiple Schlerosis and has gone through so much over the years...especially the last four. Now with Progressive MS, she lives in an assisted living facility which does not allow much home decor due to the size of the room, so we always struggle to make it "homey" for her.
ENTER OLD JUNKY CLIPBOARD. I decided to use one of the old clipboards I had in storage to make a handy frame for the wall that could easily be removed for her to take a closeup look whenever she pleases. (New, clipboards can be purchased at many dollar-type and discount stores for dirt cheap).
I then stamped green cardstock with a whole slew of numbers and attached the photo.
Have you ever just loved everything about a special photo you have? Well, that's how I feel about this one. My two oldest sisters are sitting next to their baby sister (my big sister), Terri, in this 1964 photo.
Although I'm the baby in the family now, Terri was the "little sis" back then. Sometimes the easiest of projects can be the most rewarding, don't you think? Have you ever completed a simple project that just felt right?
I am a self-made junker with a *sweet* disposition. Words I live by: reuse. repurpose. reinvent. refresh. refine. recycle. reclaim. remodel. restore. rescue. redeem. and rust.
