No, it wasn't our first Christmas together, but it was our first Christmas alone. In our own house.
And it was wonderful.
|Master Bed Room|
|My favorite part of the master bath|
|View from the stairs|
|Nook by the stairs|
|Guest bedroom, so far.|
|Laundry room. On the second floor :)|
|View from Kona's room.|
|View from the living room into the kitchen.|
|Kitchen - my favorite room|
I haven't taken pictures of the office yet - it was still in boxes, ahem, Peter. And I figured there was no point in posting pictures of the spare room we have designated Kona's room, just the incredible view. Once I 'finish' a room, I will update the pictures.
|One of several attempts.|
|After, I found an extremely helpful tutorial on how to hang them. You trace the frames onto cheap paper (I used moving paper that we have for projects, but paper grocery bags work well, too), and cut them out. Label each cut out with a short description of the photo. Line the cut out to fit the back of the frame. With your fingers, feel for the loops where the nails will go and punch holes into the paper. (I didn't get a picture of this step). With blue painters tape, tape the cut outs in the pattern you want. This makes it easier to move the cutouts and make adjustments. When you are satisfied, locate the holes you punched and nail the cut outs to the wall. Replace the cut outs with the frames.|
|Sorry for the poor quality; It was evening.|
|Final result - slightly different than my original template.|
|Beach in Rio Grande|
|The narrow streets of Old San Juan|
|Zip lining in El Yunque Rain Forest|
|I love the bright buildings|
