Twitter and Scrapbooking
by Tami Morrison | 8 years ago
Twitter has become a go-to source for news and current events, so it made sense that I should compile some memorable things I heard about there throughout the year. Twitter builds an annual highlights page each year, which I used in addition to my own Twitter feed to pull items of interest for my layout. You can visit 2013 Year On Twitter to see the biggest (i.e., most retweeted) Twitter moments of the year and link to previous years as well.
I believe that tweets are verbal snapshots and can be displayed as such. One way I’ve connected my social media world to my everyday life is with this quirky display of tweets and Instagram pictures, located in a central area of our home.
I printed a half dozen tweets that struck me as particularly funny or current and displayed them in inexpensive 4" x 6" frames, which I arranged around a deep open frame.
The tweets are easy to change out from time to time, and the photos in the open frame are even easier, tacked directly onto the wall with repositionable mounting dots from the office supply store. The hashtag title was cut from vinyl using my Cricut Expression. I love the way the wall lends a hip and modern decorative touch that reflects who we are as a family in the digital age.
