In case you didn't know, our last name is Hicks

I got this idea from something that a friend of mine had made at a fancy boo-tique. Her letters were all in one frame, but I like mine too. I got the frames at -you guessed-Goodwill Outlet and painted them black. I downloaded the picture sof the letters on the internet and printed them on my photo printer. They just fit on a wall in our hallway.

Hey! I've been wanting to do this for a while now, but haven't. They look great!! What website did you go to for the letters? Maybe with your help I'll actually get it done!

I went starting last fall taking pictures around town and other places of "letters" and have a file of color, b/w, and sepia pics of all the letters in the alphabet. I found a website to give me more ideas of what to take a picture of, but never found one where I could print them off and they look right. These were going to be Christmas presents last year. But then I could never find "cheap" enough frames (I was going to spray them black) or enough of them & didn't get it done. I had just thought of this again this weekend that I want to get started on it since I have more pics now!
I would love to go one Sunday. And now that there is somewhere I could get a bunch of CHEAP frames, I could wipe out alot of presents!

Hey Saundra, sounds like Leanne could hook you up! We all need to go together to the outlet. We are out of town this weekend, but maybe we could go the next?
