The Shepherd and His Sheep

My uncle’s book given to him the year of his birth, 1935, from his grandparents, my great-grandparents, Nana and Papa Carlson.

He never had children of his own. He died at 24.

I never knew him but I miss him.

I like my relatives.

 

 

This was time consuming but fun to make. Each family has their own 12×12 frame. The other frames are filled with miscellaneous family photos. Even though it ooh a long time and many trips, with coupons, to the frame store, I think it came out fabulous.

This is my father’s family: his mother, father, brother and himself. And the husband and wife as a couple. Their last name as well as their first names are also in the frame. And all papers coordinate, some are duplicated for a cohesive and calm look. The photos are the most important thing. I made the name plates and the hearts out of coordinating papers, but all the frames have them.
