Feeling Crafty : Frame of love letters.

Stone and I dated long distance for 3 years before we got married. Three years! That seems crazy, and this was back when it was totally creepy to be video chatting with someone, even if it was just your boyfriend. So we talked, wrote letters, sent packages, and flew to see each other whenever our school schedule and bank accounts would allow it. Now, we have an entire shoebox full of letters and emails we wrote to each other and it is kind of sweet to look back and see the things we talked about... especially when we were first getting to know each other. Our emails back then were full of the 'get to know you' questions like... 'What is your favorite breakfast food' or 'Have you ever broken any bones' (granola and no... in case you were wondering).

So when we got married and were decorating our first place together, we ended up using the cards to create a collage of sorts above our bed. We chose just some of our favorite ones and I have to say I think it turned out pretty great. Also, with the white matting and frame to help balance the pattern and color inside. Two and a half years later and I still love it, and that says a lot for someone who is constantly wanting to change up things in the house :)
