These are some fun ways to display photos. So cool and unique - there are some creative individuals out there. Currently, I only two photos up on a small wall. I I have been meaning to do something but moving throws everything off and it is taking a while to get all set up again.

Moving makes things hard for sure! It just takes awhile to get everything sorted out.
