Wednes-DIY: Instagram Photo Wall

Today’s DIY project was inspired by this post on apartment therapy. Free People has an instagram account and I love so many of the photos that our home office girls post there – it’s like our little visual diary. I LOVE the idea of printing out our photo memories and making them into wall art!

What you need: I used white poster board and double sided tape, and printed our photos out on a regular printer.

I picked photos at random and just started lining them up in rows :)

And that’s it! I think this would look awesome framed and hung up in our office :)

i’m with the band

i know i’ve talked a lot about these guys over the past few weeks on the blog, what with our catalog release party and the free download, but today i wanted you to get to know the happen-ins from their mouths :) here’s a little slideshow interview with the band mixed in with some behind the scenes photos from our catalog shoot!

somethin’ filled up
my heart with nothin’,
someone told me not to cry.

but now that I’m older,
my heart’s colder,
and i can see that it’s a lie.

children wake up,
hold your mistake up,
before they turn the summer into dust.

if the children don’t grow up,
our bodies get bigger but our hearts get torn up.
we’re just a million little god’s causin’ rain storms turnin’ every good thing to rust.

i guess we’ll just have to adjust.

with my lighnin’ bolts a glowin’
i can see where I am goin.’
