This past Saturday I had the privilege of going into New York City with my mom and dad, with whom I went to Bryant Park, Chelsea Market and the Martha Stewart Craft Show (more details to come in an upcoming post about the MS Craft Show). Before I left, I was thinking about some very special people in my life who I would like to make a gift for, one of them including my son, Charlie!
I was scouring web sites and creative magazines when I stumbled upon something that I felt I could easily do on a trip to the Big Apple. My mom and I began shooting pictures of architecture, subway signs, pipes on scaffolding, and old paper plates lying in the streets that resembled Alphabet letters.
|The Letter "O" found looking through part of a building.|
|The Letter "S" found on a mat.|
|The Letter "N" found on a subway sign.|
Assemble the letters to create a name or a word, order prints on shutterfly or your favorite online photo site and frame for a beautifully, thoughtful gift!
This Thrifty-Gifty requires a camera, an image altering computer program, a little bit of a creative eye and a beautiful frame for gifting.
