Introduction

Before long, most new parents find themselves adrift in a jumble of precious trinkets: tiny shoes, well-loved toys, embroidered gowns, the lock of hair from baby's first trim. With some creativity, you can use these things to create a poetic record of the first years of life.

Steps

  1. Step 1

    To create a quiet corner of variously sized black-and-white pictures, have photos mounted in frames of the same color or design. Two or three pictures identical in size can be matted together. Hang the frames in a loose spiral pattern with your favorite picture at the center.

  2. Step 2

    When displaying color and black-and-white pictures together, a sense of uniformity is key. We recommend taking all your pictures with the same camera; the one used here has a square format. Another option is to crop or enlarge images to the same shape and size. Arrange the mixed images in a procession of identical frames. This simple and consistent treatment will allow you to update your gallery with ease.
