Below are 2 shadowboxes I've made to honor my dad's side of the family. I absolutely love old photos. I am actually working on a plan to tweak and update these 2 projects.
Here's a shadowbox frame I made to honor my late sister. I love all her little girlie baby accessories... the rattle, the jewelry and the little shoes... with one missing lacy sock.
Last but not least... my drawer. I have a fun story to go with this drawer. We were getting ready to hold a garage sale and one of my husband's fishing buddies asked if he could add some things to our sale. He came walking up our drive one day with an assortment of items for the sale. One was this neat drawer from a remodel in the old science building at Millikin University (my alma mater for undergrad work) where he taught. I took one look at it and told him I'd take that off his hands. He had always wanted to 'make something with it' but had finally given up the idea. I love it and love that it has history.
I could not get a better shot of my drawer project. I was trying to take it inside with it still hanging on my wall. I did not want to take it outside to get a better shot of it., as it's difficult to move and it was raining at the time. I think you get the idea. I added various objects that have personal significance and meanings to me.
If you've never tried a project like any of these, I really encourage you to try one. They are so much fun and a wonderful way to enjoy a bit of your family history each and every time you see them on display in your home.
