I rotate the pictures about once a year.
Today was the day.
There's something about freshly printed photos that feels so special and a little exciting.
Plus, it was time to get a photo up of Son.
But this post is not about the pictures on the wall.
This post is about what I do with the pictures that come off the wall.
It's not anything fancy, or earth-shatteringly original/creative, but it is very practical and very functional. And it's a great way to keep those pictures organized.
Here's my secret.
I put them in a binder.
And it looks like this:
Nothing fancy, nothing special, nothing impressive - but one of my most prized possessions.
I got the idea from a dear friend of mine who keeps a very similar binder. She is oh so smart, so I copy her ideas.
I love having a collection of photos of our family over the years. All in one place. A photo diary.
And I love how simple it is.
Take the picture off the wall, then put it in the binder.
No embellishments, no layouts. Just simple.
The binder is divided in sections:
I've also put important documents in there - i.e. my diploma, our pedigree charts, other certificates. The binder has become a family history book of sorts. At least until I have the time (and motivation) to do anything more.
