My 2.5 year old woke up sick today. Poor thing! But, since she actually took a nap today (which I appreciated despite the circumstance) I was able to get some nature posters framed for little man’s owl-themed room. I got the posters in college at a seminar and pulled them out recently with the intention of sticking some in his room. I wasn’t crazy about the idea of poster frames or the fact that each poster had a cheesy quote at the top and a big Smokey the Bear head at the bottom so when I saw a mom on Facebook post two floating frames for $5, I snatched them up. I had never seen a floating frame before but this type essentially had a frame, a pane of glass, and a small wood insert that holds the picture in place. I was actually expecting two panes of glass to sandwich the poster which probably would have been nicer since the paper was curling from being rolled. Eventually I might modify the frames especially if the wood insert doesn’t seem to be keeping the posters in place. I picked out a poster with mushrooms and one with tree leaves and got started.

Baby boy is still sleeping in his room and so I’ll have to wait to get them up on the wall! It seems like everything in a house with little ones is a ten step process so I’m glad to be one step in the right direction!
