#15- Hang a picture of the temple in the house and one in Ruby's room- DONE

So, I've done a little editing to my 30 by 30 list. I'll post the new and improved list soon. Until then, here is an update of two items I've crossed off:

15. Hang a picture of the temple in the house and one in Ruby's Room.

17. Bear my testimony in sacrament meeting.

Done and Done.

I've heard the recommendation many times to have pictures of the temple hanging in your house and to hang one in your kid's rooms. I think it's a great recommendation but have never done this because, truth be told, I'm super snobbish and picky about church art. While the general pictures are pretty, if I'm going to hang it in my house I want it to have a bit more personality. Plus some church art is just plain cheesy- which isn't me. So after chatting with some good friends, we challenged ourselves to make our own temple pictures. If we didn't like others, best attack it ourselves. I'll apologize now for the not so fabulous photos, but it's just so much easier to snap a pic on my phone rather than get out my camera. In fact, I'm not quite sure were my camera is... Anyway, here is what I came up with:

In our front room now you will find this temple.

Here is a closer picture. It's a bit on the small, subtle size, but that's just how it turned out. 

And now in Ruby's room you will find this temple.

I'm thrilled with how they both turned out. A bit non-traditional, but so am I.
