My friend Steve had the nervous habit of cutting out photos of people and standing them up on his desk. It was the strangest thing I’d ever seen but I loved it so much I asked to borrow the idea. I think it’s a great way to show off your photos in a very different way. I like being surrounded by a crowd when I’m at my desk. I also like to think about my family and friends and see their smiling faces. It just makes me feel great.

SUGGESTION: Do the photos on your computer!
