Meet Amy

No, it's not a new American Girl Movie...but she is American and she is a girl. She's also a busy, hands on mom of 5. Amy has a knack for scheduling and organizing her large family and sometimes finds time for some creative projects like today's feature. Being only 2 years apart, I know some of her many talents, and believe me, she's way better at stuff like this than she was at learning how to drive... he he...
Amy has a large wall right next to her kitchen table. Here's how she filled the space.

Those are pictures of her 5 kids at various ages doing what else? Eating!

She bought the wood letters at Michaels and used a paintbrush to "paint" a thin layer of really tacky glue on the back of the letters. Then she put masking tape on top of them to hold them there until they dried (ooh, you could even use the vinyl letters that are all the rage now...). She says the hardest part is doing the math involved in making sure that your pictures are evenly spaced on your wall space, and the letters are even trickier to get them centered on the wall also....Well, we took a college math class together and she did struggle a little...ha ha! Just kidding A-frame!

Bon Appetit!

That looks really good! I love the idea of having pictures of them eating in the kitchen!
