DIY large photo prints

DIY large photo prints?  Sort of.  I suppose all in all, this isn’t so much of a Do It Yourself project as it is a Let Hobby Lobby Do It For You project.  But, let’s not argue over semantics.  I had to coordinate this project and it’s pretty cheap— so I’m calling it a DIY. […]

This post has been a long time coming.  So many of you have asked me if I love the marble, after living with it for awhile. It’s complicated, okay.  Real things always are. And let me say that EVERYBODY warned me against marble.  I didn’t think the counter top guy was gonna sell it to […]
