Is it really worth framing?
We all collect things.
Things from places, people and experiences in our life.
They make us feel connected to people and experiences long gone.
Always consider the importance of sentimental value when deciding if you should frame an object.
If you find yourself smiling when you hold or see an object, frame it now before it is too late.
This is why:
Once upon a time, my children were young and always making crafts that would be proudly displayed on the refrigerator door, taped to the wall or displaced on the kitchen counter.
As my children grew older, these crafts became less and less.
And then, they just stopped . . .
Eventually these little treasures got packed away and forgotten.
I bet you have a box or two hidden away in your closet, don’t you?
Unfortunately when forgotten, these things often get lost, inadvertently thrown out or even damaged.
I remember receiving two precious “macaroni” necklaces and the pride on my children’s faces when they gave them to me. Oh how I miss those days!
And, yes, one of my macaroni necklaces was found years later, crushed beyond repair.
Robert Brault said it best:
“Enjoy the little things – for one day you will look back & discover they were the big things”.
My macaroni necklaces was that “little thing” that reminded me of those special moments.
And I neglected to preserve them both until it was almost to late.
Because I lost one of them, I now understand that sentimental value is more important than monetary value.
You can now find my only remaining macaroni necklace in a frame and proudly displayed on my wall.
I truly believe objects that bring back good memories are worth protecting, treasuring and therefore framing before it is too late.
Let me help preserve your current or long forgotten “little things”, by framing them into unique displays for your walls, no matter how unusual.
So what did we do with the little ballet slippers?
Yes, it is well worth it!
