A few posts back I showed off a framed piece from Home Interiors, that I took apart and painted and then in the frame was a wonderful embroidered white 'M' monogramed on white. I said I needed feed back. Well the majority of comments I got back were to not frame something square with something oval. I agreed, so this is what I have done with this frame now and it is hanging in my craft studio. I love it now and am doing something different with the monogram. Below is what it looked like before I changed it.
*Here is an interesting side note though. When I was at the Brass Armadillo (antique mall with my sister a few weeks ago) I spotted this same exact framed piece two different times in that mall, and the first time it was $30.00 and the second time it was tagged $60.00. (keep in mind that it is a home interiors heavy plastic frame and not an antique at all) I had to smirk, laugh and grin big, cause I got mine for a couple of dollars at a yard sale! SCORE!
I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
