Making Memories

While I was in Milwaukee, Daniel and I visited Alterra, the coffee shop where he works. I, of course, walked out with a pretty cup and saucer and a t-shirt.

The bag they were placed in had such a pretty design that I didn't want to throw it away, and it was a fun keepsake from my trip. However, I didn't want a random bag just sitting around in my room.

So I decided to make it the background for one of my favorite pictures from the trip!


I bought an inexpensive 5x7 frame from Target and cut the portion of the bag without writing to fit. I then printed the picture from my computer slightly smaller, glued it to the bag, and put it all in the frame.


Here we are at The Bean in Chicago!
