Are the Walls Closing In?

Framing in the Time of Coronavirus

A pandemic has upended our entire country. You obeyed the rules, you stayed at home for weeks now, and you’re all caught up on TV. What to do now? Does it feel like your walls are about to close in on you? Here are a few ways to keep your creative juices flowing and prepare your framing projects for Life After Covid-19 (without actually leaving the house).

LOST & FOUND MEMORIES

Maybe you spent your time at home cleaning and reorganizing your closets. How many shoeboxes of old photos did you find? Cherished keepsakes? Maybe an old memento that belonged to Grandma? Instead of hiding those heirlooms in the closet, plan a beautiful display! Follow these steps to create a memorable project.

Step 1:
Based on what you found, select a theme – such as Grandma’s Scarf.

Step 2:
Gather all items that relate to your theme – photos, mementos, letters, textiles.

Step 3:
Bring your items to us once we are open again. We will help you arrange them in a pleasing manner.

Step 4:
We’ll work our framing magic and present you with a completed framed project, so you can cherish your memories for a lifetime!

“Good times are a reminder and a reward for dealing with the difficult and challenging times we all go through. Always remember, good times await you after the difficult times pass….”
