"FIRSTS" Memory Cork Board.


Hand-written memory cards with each "FIRSTS" photo.
It frustrates me when a project is finished, but the results didn't equal what you expected.  Take an old antique window I repurposed earlier this year (link here).  I made it for my office, but because of the color, or the size - it just wasn't serving it's original purpose.  Finally, after a moment of pure brilliance (insert laughing) I realized I could turn the frame and it would fit perfectly on my entryway wall.  I am disappointed it took so long to figure this out - but every good thing takes time - right?!

I thought of putting random photos up, but this was what people saw first.  It had to be something really special.  So the first thing people see, are our family's "FIRSTS"; from kisses to first dates to first haircuts to first guitar solos to first trips and the list goes on.  I'm really excited about this!
