I love writing posts here about the importance of printing your photos, because it gives me an incentive to come up with fun ways to display my own photos - like this fun baby mobile that doubles as a hanging picture display. I came across it at an art museum gift shop awhile ago, but only remembered it recently when I was looking for ways to display my square prints.
It's really great for children's development to see pictures of themselves around their home environment. I think it's great for parents too. ;-) I love that our son can look up and see pictures of himself and our family. And I love that I can change them out easily whenever I get new prints. I used two prints for each of the ten clips and taped the inside of the pictures together to keep them from spreading apart.
Now I just need to get a few more for other places in the house. One of the funniest things I remember about when our first son was a baby was the random placement of mobiles in our house. We had one above the dresser in our bedroom and one hanging from a light fixture in our dining room. And at one point, we had one hanging above the dining table in the kitchen. We tend to use spaces in our house as the need calls for, with a couch or the floor usually serving as a diaper changing station. Life just happens wherever we are. :-)
You can find the mobile on Amazon. These prints are from Artifact Uprising. Check out my earlier post about their prints (and how to get them for free!). And stay tuned for a similar review of Parabo square prints. I'm waiting for those to come in the mail. :-)
