I'm saving this for real this time

snapshots

I love frames, don't get me wrong but when living in a dorm, a temporary residence, frames aren't that practical, so I went into my stash of pictures to find all my favorite ways of displaying your pictures, polaroids and other snapshots! I feel like every dorm has a polaroid wall, so these are a few examples of how to mix it up.

1. Don't line them up in a perfect rectangle, make a montage blob, not everything is perfect in the world.
note: don't just keep your polaroids in your bedroom, they can go anywhere, use caution putting them on your door, they will be attacked.

2. Or if order is your style, get out a ruler and make sure everything is perfectly symmetrical and straight. This first one is my absolute favorite, and belongs to a friend of mine.



3. Shapes! Mountains, peace signs (ala sam weinberg), words, use your imagination.

4. Instead of taping or tacking your pictures to a wall grab some string and clothes pins.

In other news, nothing much is going on. 3 weeks left in high school and it is all parties, projects, and ceremonies.
