Wall of photos....

When we go to all of the bigger shows, the kids want to get thier pictures taken with their animals. And while it is expensive ($10 for 2 4x6 prints) they want them and so that is one thing we've tried to get every year - a good picture with each animal they've shown.


Then of course is the dilema - what do we do with all of these pictures. And then I found inexpensive frames at Wal-mart. The 5x7 frames are $2 each, and the 8x10 frames are $3 each.


Jessie's room is currently cotton candy pink. And her furniture is white. So I painted her frames cottage white by Behr. I figure the white will work with any color room she comes up with when we repaint her room in a few weeks....











Tyler's room is red, white and blue. But I went with leaving the frames black for him. Partly because I'm lazy and painting all of these frames has been driving me batty.

I try to also print off pictures that I've taken of them actually in the show ring. Which was a challenge until recently when I got a new camera. Because usually in the showring, they are several hundred feet away from me. And my little point and shoot camera just doesn't zoom well that far. So I cashed in some rewards and got myself enough gift cards to Best Buy to buy a Cannon DSLR camera. I'm still learning it, but I do manage to get some good pictures:)


So I do have more pictures to frame and put up here. And then they both asked if I could print off some pictures of them showing pigs and frame them.



I think they are going to run out of room......

You'll have to turn your hallway into "The Hall of Champions!" ;)

skip the frames and wallpaper their rooms with the pictures! then you won't have to paint either! it looks like you have enough fabulous pictures for an entire wall for each of them!

Pictures are great memories! I've never tried to paint frames before, but I bet it can be aggravating.

That is a great idea! I know they will love having all those pictures on the wall. I bet it is not fun painting all those frames, though.:)
