K-Wings Honor Goalie

Joel Martin, Kalamazoo Wings goalie, was honored with this shadowbox before the game on February 3, 2017, for breaking the franchise record for career wins – with his 197th! Before Martin rewrote the record books, the previous mark had stood for 30 years. This was an unforgettable accomplishment that required an equally unforgettable token of [...]

Faberge Eggs Needlepoint

“I thought I would frame these needlepoint Faberge eggs individually, but Cindy suggested putting them all together. I think the finished piece is beautiful! I have been bringing my needlepoint projects to PJ’s Frame-Up for over 25 years. They always amaze me with their creative matting and framing. I would not trust my work to [...]

W. Soule At The South Pole

In late 2012, he was working as a Utility Mechanic at the McMurdo Research Station in Antarctica. [...]

My Father’s Bathing Suit

“This wool bathing suit was found in a cedar chest after my parents had passed away. My dad wore it in the late 1920’s. I don’t have a photo of him in the suit, however, looking through old albums, I found many pictures of my mother in her bathing suit. Notice the high dive [...]

Trappings of the Trade

by Tim Callahan “This is an oil painting that I completed in the summer of 2015, while taking a class at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts with Ken Freed. The lobster trap was bought in Buzzard’s Bay, Cape Cod (one of my favorite places). The decoys are from our personal collection. I set them all [...]

My Wedding Dress

“The most precious memory of my life has been my wedding day. PJ’s Frame-Up has helped me preserve that memory! I had my wedding dress made into a quilt, which I helped to design. Then I took it to Cindy to have it framed. She did a wonderful job! I have it hung in my [...]

Postcards from Paris

“Last May, I visited Paris with my old college roommate, who is my favorite “travel buddy.” We had a wonderful time, wandering happily throughout the city. We stayed in a charming apartment on the Isle Saint Louis, which is a magical place. While visiting an outdoor flower market, I found these colorful postcards, featuring my favorite landmark, the Eiffel [...]

“Ode to Jay” by Roger Jenkins

I remember being very young and hearing how my middle name “Jay” was chosen for me. My father and his cousin Jay spent much of their childhood playing and swimming together, spending a lot of time at Grandpa and Grandma’s farm throughout the Depression years.  Dad was a couple years older than Jay.  Years [...]

“The Trip of a Lifetime” by Sue Fritz

"Ten days in Tanzania with the Kalamazoo Safari Company in the fall of 2014 changed my life forever. From the hot air balloon ride, to seeing the beautiful African animals in the wild…every day was magical. A trip of a lifetime leaves so many impacting memories. Even a daily journal can’t capture the analogies in [...]

Then Anna Stryd (1961) and Jackie Wylie (1962) proposed a pin display project to the alumni board. The pin display became a reality and was featured at the alumni brunch on [...]
