Caroline asked me to post the collages I commented about in her "Self Portrait" post.

One day after getting a bit cheesed off with packs and packs of photos hidden in dark drawers, I decided to make a collage.
It proved so easy to do that Karen decided to make another 3 or 4.

We have them hanging in the living room and the bathroom.

Every now and then, a glimpse brings memories flooding back.

A pair scissors, a picture frame, a tube of glue and imagination!
Piece of cake!

Looks like a lot of work! But much better than letting them rot somewhere in a shoebox!

yes, film does pile up and take up alot of space! This is an excellent and creative solution and provides many memories! And you both got to go over memories together!!! Your illo below is so nice cream, great job and sounds like a chilly frolic! so nice that you bond with your employees, that is the problem with many work environments the workers feel unappreciated and taken for granted everybody just wants to feel appreciated!

This would be a good way to start the year and get a little more organized at the same time.
I'm glad you shared cream. I get a good feeling from you, that you really enjoy your life, and that you do life well.

Thanks for posting this Cream - they look brilliant! Like Mosaics of your life.

Do you do any other sorts of collage too?

Viking, yes, shoeboxes just rot away in the dark.

Thanks, Hayden,

Val, these are all photos of the family and it is nice to look at them and reminisce happy events.
The mention of employees in this post has just given me an idea. Once I have a minute, I will do collages of staff and maybe even customers photos.

Brian, life is too short not to be enjoyed. Aim for 100% and you'll be able to ride the minuses.

Penny, all you need is patience! You can have themes, kids, family, friends... You may even turn them into greetings cards. That's just given me an idea!

Caro, I like that! "The mosaics of your life!"
No, I haven't done any other collages. Just the "college of life,"

I like I like I like, especially how you blend the colours :-)

What a great idea.

Now if only I can persuade my mother to let me CUT the photos of her beloved grandchildren!

yes, that is a great idea your staff and customers will think it is so special that you included them in a collage!
cream, las vegas weddings are notoriusly cheesy but i was surprised at how heartfelt and sweet it was! but I think if elvis performed the ceremony it would be a cheesefest! as elvis would say "Thank you very much!"

Wendy, I've seen your collage. Great!

Gigi, I am sure when your mother sees the first one, she'll ask for more.

Elvis, the wedding singer! I wonder whether he ever sang at a wedding in his life.
"The wonder of you...."

"Mosaics of your life" is a great phrase! I think this is a brilliant way to use old photos. Thanks for the tip, Cream.
