I'm so glad you found me! I'm a San Francisco photographer, and this blog charts my journey in the ever-evolving world of photography. One of the things I love about photography is that it's a journey, not a destination. I'm constantly learning and meeting wonderful people. Please peruse the blog to your heart's content, then check out my website and feel free to contact me! (I love hearing from you.)

Happy Tape, AKA the cheapest frames ever

 As some of you may know, my living situation for the past year has been a little unstable. We're still renovating, so the walls I have now are not the walls of my future. Due to that, and the general cost of frames, I haven't put much of my work on the walls.

That  is, until recently. I stumbled across a site called Happy Tape a while back, that sells Japanese paper tape (kind of like blue tape, or painter's tape, but in cool colors and designs. And then I saw a blog post where this delightful tape was used as a cheap alternative to wallpaper.

And I had a great idea. Why not use it as a frame? Wayy cheaper than traditional frames, no holes in the wall. Not going to pull off the paint, which is good. And temporary, but permanent enough. Why not?

So I did. I recommend it. I printed out a bunch of my NY photos, and I also put up some previously printed Thailand shots.
 I used the make-a-frame two pack, but you could probably go hog wild, and color coordinate with your prints, or use silver and gold to make it look extra fancy. The sky's the limit!

  1. Thank you for this! This is perfect for work, I'm not allowed to put holes in the walls, but I may have to give this a try. Great idea!

  2. What a great idea! That tape looks so cool - and allows you to basically make your walls a big revolving photo show without much fuss.


I love comments! I read and cherish every single one. Go ahead, make my day.
