Just the other day Hanah was musing about a conversation that frequently occurs at her desk. Observing that this may be a universal feeling, she decided to write a blog post about it:
I can’t tell you how many times a customer has asked me:
“Is this really worth framing?”
My answer is always:
“Do you love it? Does it mean something to you? Then, of course it is.”
You are worth surrounding yourself with the things you love. It doesn’t matter if the item cost you nothing or if it needs to be on your homeowner’s insurance. The most important factor is how you feel about it. Will it make you happy to look at everyday? Then it is worth giving it a beautiful and safe home in a gorgeous frame.
Bring some joy to your walls with:
Honor your family by framing:
- Paintings by your grandmother
- Your favorite family photo
- Paintings by your children
- Your child’s hand-print
Many of my favorite projects have more sentimental than monetary value. The things in life that we value are the things that are worth framing, whether or not anyone else agrees. So go for it! Do something that makes you happy, and frame your invaluably sentimental items.
Join in on the conversation here or on Facebook: Do you have a hard time deciding whether or not something is worth framing? Why or why not? What motivates you to want to frame your sentimental objects?
