    I hope it's OK to post these late. I finally had the time to get out & collect the alphabets.

    I should be able to keep up now that I'm done with my photography class.

        Morgan, I'm planning on doing my last name in a frame as well. Have you started looking for frames yet?

          that was the reason why I started this alphabet thing last year. Someone on BDW showed me a website where they sell these & i thought it would be a cool gift idea. I just didn't get as far without the inspiration. I was spending too much time on hiking trails & it's so much harder to find the letters in trees. Going around campus was much better.

          So the idea is to have a collection of letters to frame as gifts. Like the last name for a wedding gift, a babies name for a newborn gift, etc.

          If I hang anything up it will be our last name. putting morgan on the wall is too junior high :) i was just excited to see I could spell it out.

          First names could make nice birthday presents for kids, not just babies. I had been thinking of it as a baby gift. it would be so much nicer than the dot matrix banner I had hanging in my room that said "morgan". remember those things we made in print shop in the 80s? you'd have to tear the little edges off the paper that had the holes in it.

          I was also thinking about making thank you cards & birthday cards with the letters. I'm sure we'll be able to come up with lots of ideas for our letters once we are done. fun!

          I looked some last year. I thought a panoramic frame would work the best. we should post here if we find something cool.

            Morgan I fell upon a site like that too, and that's what gave me the idea. I'm making my sister/husband and Cain's Aunt & Her husband a frame for Christmas. I also want to make a frame for me, but I'm looking for a really cool B first. It's really important to me that I'm the one that took all the pictures, it's more personal, KWIM?

            I was thinking of a panoramic frame but I wasn't sure how many letters it would hold, so I need to find the frame first so that I know what size pictures to order.

              maybe a long poster frame?

              a good B is hard to find. But, maybe someone will get a great idea for a B that will help you find one. seeing other letters helps me know where to look for them & what to look for.

                12 x 36 is a common frame size. I'm going to lay out some pictures & see how that size would work.

                you can get custom frames for about $40 on many websites.

                    even if I'm not trying to be funny, I'm always being silly.

                    too bad I don't have a good K. that is one letter I'm really on the lookout for. a K & a B. I almost tripped the other day because I was looking around me so much I wasn't paying attention.
