In Print

I fasted from most totally-unnecessary purchases over the months that Jim wasn't working. I said most. But one thing I did not purchase at all in all that time was new, updated prints for our wall frames. It just didn't seem like a good time...though I think buying great prints of pictures you love of people you love is right up there just above buying bananas and light bulbs.


But so back to the point- I didn't buy any. In the past couple of weeks, I fixed that.


There are updated pictures all over our house- an act that was very affirming to me. I love seeing all those faces, I love printing these abstract images I create into something we can experience away from the computer screen, I love even more moments to be reminded of around my house, throughout my day.


I've recently caught the love bug for BIG prints. 8x10, which used to be big, and reserved for my faves, well, now that crop seems so small- I mean, you can barely see the faces in there!


How about an 11x14? Now you can really see something. The images really start to say something.



Or, how about a 16x20 of your blessed punks. What could be better?

Love the pictures. Where do you get your prints printed at?

I was going to ask the same thing, where do you get them printed at? I love using Costco--they are so cheap and they do a good job.

I know how you feel...I scoff at budgets, right now we buy food, gas, tithe, pay bills. our checkbook register is a little depressing. but, someday. Cute pic of the kids (maybe I'll book you for after the baby is born, even if that would contradict what I just said:)

What could be better? Not much, I'd have to say. You've inspired me to order some from winkflash right now. :-)

Very inspiring Megan! Those prints are stunning, and they totally bring your walls to life. Just beautiful. I really really need to update our walls and am embarrassed to admit that we currently have no family shots up at all :(. Time to change that!

I'd love to hear your fav place for prints, also! We've used snapfish with pretty good results, but some chains leave much to be desired! Adorable photos, as always.

We love big prints. We have 16x20's hanging of our kids! And a poster size of our family.

They look great!! I need to order prints, desperately! Im awful about not updating the pictures in my house.

Love the one of the four them, it is perfection.
