christmas print

Remember back in my Christmas post, when I was anxiously waiting my custom-ordered--not-so-cheap frame?

Well, funny story. It came and I hated it. It made the print look cheap and the colors less than their bright and bold self. On to plan B..figure something out Moll because we're not spending any more money. So I attached it to the piece of foam it came with and stuck it up frameless on the wall. JD was kind to ask me, couldn't we have just bought a piece of foam board from Michaels for $5.00? Well, yes we could and learn I guess.

Anyway, I love how it looks and it makes a bold statement in our living room.

Onto other news...did you see the new header? I'm not sure what compelled me to make a new header the same weekend my final project AND report cards were due, but I did. I've been longing to buy Photoshop but because of its $500 price tag...need I say more. I was on the hunt for something else. I stumbled upon Piasca and love it! I am more than satisfied with this equally cool and free program. Have you heard of it? Google makes it and it's pretty awesome. I've been playing around with making collages and adding different effects to pictures.

I've also been tinkering with the idea of changing the URL address to The Douglas Duo instead of High Style on a Small Budget. Since it's kind of morphed into capturing our lives, along with DIY projects, recipes, etc.

I would make a survey for you to vote but honestly...I have got to get back to my report cards. Please leave a comment with your suggestion.


  1. LOVE it and the picture. The title is so true. Together you make a dynamic team.

  2. Obviously I'm catching up on your blog! I like the Douglas Duo but what about after you have kids?!!! Kidding, I like the Douglas Duo name!
