one of my resolutions this year was to not buy more art until i framed what i have. i already broke it. but, the good part is that i am working on it. kristen gave me this print last year for my birthday with the girls room in mind. it is by artist ashley g from st louis. and i love it. so do the girls. thank you kristen, spot on my friend. i finally took it in last week, and now it has a place at home.
now, i cant really be responsible for the time frame on this one. i had no idea it would be four years in the making. while i was pregnant with eliot i read somewhere that you could bring paper and ask for an extra set of footprints while they were doing their thing with the birth certificate. i was all over this. i think i asked david a million times if he had the watercolor pad while we were on the way to the hospital. crazy i know. i also insisted on balancing the checkbook before we left, but thats another story. anyway, so fast forward to now and here i find myself with three sets of lovely footprints. and lots of smiles. it is so nice to have these things out to enjoy. it really is. i know framing can be expensive. my friend beth tipped me off to a fantastic frame shop just down the street. thank you beth! i hope to have something else framed every few months or so, and then i can start worrying about my lack of wall space. it's always something, isn't it?
