A New Item in My Etsy Shop...

I have just put this item in my Etsy shop. It is a special order. I will use the buyers photo and make this one of a kind creation that is sure to become something that will be treasured.

This past weekend I was seeing my Aunt Lynn and I had wanted to make her something special for Christmas. She is always going out of her way for me, doing special little things. My mom and her are very close so I decided to make both of them the same gift. My mom had given me the photo of her and her four siblings. (My mom is the tall girl standing to the right of her twin brother). I just love the big bows in all the girl's hair! I thought incorporating this photo into a gift would be something that they would treasure. I had to come up with an idea.

... Here is want I came up with.... I painted the black shadow box frame with a bit of gold. The frame is 1.5" deep so I embellished it with buttons and an antique key.
I finished the gift off with a matching gift bag with a sweet poem about memories. I'm going to make one for myself. I have the perfect photo in mind. If your interested take a look at my Etsy shop. Wishing you the beginning of a very happy and blessed New Year.

The pictures of your son are just wonderful, what a handsome young man he is!!! I love that the photographer took some different shots, too ~ you will treasure these forever. Wishing you a wonderful week, xxoo, Dawn
