With so many options, how does one choose? That’s what I’ve been asking myself the last few days while working on my silhouette pictures. I finally settled on two dark oval 11×14 frames from Michael’s. I was lucky to score the 50% store promotion, on top of my 25% off on frames coupon. I got the set for 30 beans and I’m pretty happy with the outcome. Lets take a looksie shall we?

I’m pretty happy with the final outcome, but still have even more visions! Here’s a sneak peak…
I had high hopes for using this frame:
Found at good old Ikea. But the dimensions are pretty large, and I don’t want to end up dwarfing the photo of us in the middle. But ever since I saw this frame I thought it just screamed silhouette. I thought so…but I’m not sure if that’s the direction I want to take after all. I might stop in and visit my favorite Swedish friends soon and see what I think. I do have to keep in mind that they won’t always be above my bed, and therefore bigger might be better. Decisions decisions!
And finally, I need to make a decision as to what background color to use. Right now I just have cream colored paper, but I was thinking a fun fabric? Or patterned paper? Do you think something like that would work, or should I stick to the solid? Even more decisions…yikes!
As I’m sure you can see in the background of these photos a deliciously bubble gum pink striped wall paper. puke. Not my first choice that’s for sure, but its been on the walls ever since my parents moved in 10+ years ago. And extends all the way into the hall and attached bathroom. Since moving back home last spring I’ve had a lot of visions, but now every nook and cranny is full of all my junk and I’m lacking motivation to spruce up. That and a leaky bathroom ceiling are holding me back. Maybe in the coming months I’ll find some motivation and get painting. But at the same time with B and I months away from apartment hunting we’ll see if I ever get that far.
I’m sure you will see the whole process documented here when I make a final decision!
New Years Resolution: Less stress, less clutter, less complication. Today’s progress: Less stress…check! Saved money at Michaels because of the sales and coupons woot. Also ordered my textbook for my class, that’s a load off my shoulders, bring on the semester!. Less clutter…check minus. Never actually organized anything, but I did buy some new baskets at Michaels to help hide some of my “stuff”! Less complication…no complications today!
