Life Love Larson: Poster Size It

Poster Size It

I picked up some photos today that I wanted to share!  I have had two empty (large) matted frames I have been needing to fill for many months.  I wanted a fairly recent photo of each child, and I wanted it to not be so obvious of a picture choice.  After a few minutes of playing around on Picnik (you must check out this free site!), I saved the retouched pictures and ordered two poster-sized prints from Walgreens online.  The frame size was 16x 20, and it holds an 11 x 14 print, at which point it is considered a "poster".  They still look and feel like a photo, but they call it a poster.

I was having a little trouble with the lighting while snapping these photos, but you get the idea!  Please excuse the glare!

These will be resting on a shelf in our great room.
I also wanted to send a BIG thank you to Holly from Life in the Fun Lane for mentioning and linking up my moss wreath and letter on her blog.  Holly's blog was the first blog I ever became addicted to and a huge inspiration for me to experiment with making over some furniture pieces!

A HUGE thanks is also in order to Emily at Emily A. Clark for featuring my moss wreath and letter on her blog today.  I recently came across her blog and quickly wanted to stop back daily!

Thanks to all of you who have stopped by to browse my little ol' blog.  I love doing projects and being able to share them with others.  I appreicate each person for stopping by and making comments.  I hope you will come back!


  1. Hi Andrea - I came across your blog today from Emily A. Clark when she featured your moss wreath - first off CUTE wreath, I'll have to try it. Second your husband Steve works with my husband Byron from Dallas. Small world coming across your blog - I knew your name was Andrea from stories Steve has told Byron and of course your blog name caught my eye and I just put two and two together - at least I think I did?!?! HA!

  2. I have spent the last 30 minutes looking at your blog! I'm so glad I stumbled onto it. Thank you for sharing your home decor and crafty tips. I've bookmarked you and will be back often. :)
