Decorating with Pictures Series 2014

I am so excited to announce the 4th annual Decorating with Pictures series here at Capturing Joy!  This year will be bigger and better than ever, as I’ve got 54 amazingly creative contributors, as well as over $5000 in double daily giveaways from some fabulous and generous sponsors!! Decorating with Pictures Series: 54 creative contributors share their picture home decor along with over $5000 in giveaways all month. #photography #diy www.KristenDuke.com

I have long felt very passionately about the importance of decorating our homes with the faces of those we love the most. I believe that our children notice those pictures of love and family unity, and it will plant in them a strong message of being a team. It also quietly builds their self confidence, as they are seen as important enough to be displayed along with all the collectables, decorative pillows, and knick knacks.

Though your children may not notice those images enough to mention every day, it is tucked in the back of their minds, and they feel the security that they are in a loving family. The secret to raising loving, creative, honest, self-confident kids is to nurture their self- esteem. How better to nurture that self-esteem than to decorate your home with THEM! Not just in family spaces, but each room of the home, have a little something. In the children’s bedroom, by placing pictures of your child being loved next to their bed will be the last thing before they sleep and the first thing they see when they awaken. Images speak louder than words.And moms—make sure YOU are in some of those images! Your children need to see you loving and squeezing them, too. (Of course there are other ways to build self-esteem, this is just something I love a lot).

Two of my favorite spots in my home are when I turned Vintage Windows into Pictures Frames

vintage window into picture frameand repurposed a giant frame into a beautiful spot of my children (you should see the before of the frame). They are both big and bold and bring extra joy to my home. 

Decorate with Photos

So bookmark this page, pin it, share it, invite your friends to follow along as twice a day–all month long–this site will be filled with creative inspiration to decorate your home with pictures, as well as chances to win prizes from over 50 vendors. Each vendor is donating an average of $100 in prizes or credit!  Post will go live at 7 AM and 3 PM Central every day.

If you’re jaded by giveaways because only one person wins, you’ll be excited to hear that we’ll have over 50 winners and over $5000 in prizes total! So the more you enter, the higher the likelihood that you’ll win. Even if you don’t win, you’ll be introduced to what I consider the best brands and small businesses on the web. By following these vendors on social media, you’ll be privy to their sales and new inventory. I’m SOO excited about what is being offered, I wish I could enter to win!

Here is a sneak peek of just SOME of the sponsors I’ve got lined up:

  4. Kristen,
    Once again another great post. What a cool idea! And you are so right, when your children are on “display”, especially when guests are over, what a better way to “brag” about your children and at the same time build up their self esteem! Again, love your post, so practical and helpful!
