Bright, modern & colorful gallery wall

In our last house, I put together a somewhat formal gallery wall above our stairway.  I loved it and it definitely fit the look of that house.  But our new house is much smaller, less formal and more modern, so I wanted to do something different (plus, the new owners of our old house liked the gallery wall so much that they bought it from us).  This new gallery wall has somewhat of a "scrapbook" feel which I really like and is full of bright pops of color - much like our new house.  Once again, I relied on Target and Hobby Lobby as my primary sources for frames and objects :)  I hope you enjoy this one as much as the last one (which was pinned several thousand times)!  Once again, source list is at the bottom of this page AND you can grab the pin here.

Project 356 | 2015 | Day 4

1/4/15: Coldest day of winter so far and Hallie insisted on going outside with Daddy to shovel.  Despite being very bundled up, she only lasted about 5 minutes in the 5 degree weather.  She looked at her gloves and started crying because her poor little fingers were so cold :(
Mommy made it all better with snuggly jammies and homemade hot chocolate :)

Project 356 | 2015 | Day 3

1/3/15: Hallie and Daddy unload the dishwasher after breakfast

Project 356 | 2015 | Day 1

I thought I should give this Project 365 thingy a try since time seems to pass so quickly these days.  What better way to freeze all the special moments in time than with one picture a day, fo a whole year.  My plan is to upload these pictures to a digital photo album and print it out at the end of the year.  Sort of a Jensen family yearbook :)  Here goes nothing...
Hallie enjoying two of her favorite things: jumping on the bed and being "naked" (i.e. wearing just underwear.)
