Wall Art with Heart

Dear DIY Lov'n Friend,

i recently finished a project that I've been planning since this summer.

it all started when i found a pottery barn frame in the alley at our previous house in downtown minneapolis.

it was just a little scuffed up, but i knew that i could make a little something special with it as a conversation piece on the walls of our new home.

for several months the frame hung empty on a wall next to our dining table,  just waiting to be filled.

but now, she's finished:

we've truly left a little piece of our heart in each and every state we've lived in the past 12 years.

we have made some very dear friends and have so many fond memories of fun experiences in each and every place.

i printed an outline of each state on paper reflecting colors already represented in our home decor, then mounted them in the order in which we've lived.

such a simple, but meaningful representation of our family history that evokes both personal memories and opportunity to share a bit of our story with new friends that visit us.
