Oh how I love when the mail comes and there is a special delivery.Today when I saw the package, I quickly ripped open the wrapper. I knew exactly what was inside. It was the new addition of Somerset Studio Gallery.
It’s the winter 2010 issue; can you guess why I got it early? Yep, one of my creations was in the publication. I quickly flipped the pages, and there it was on page 83. I submitted this for the issue which has a feature about “Sisterhood”. I sent the handcrafted design way back in February, where I posted about it HERE. A few months ago the editor contacted me to let me know that they were going to feature it in the magazine. You can only imagine the “Happy Dance” I did when I read the email. Once again my husband and two boys thought I had lost my mind! The photo was taken years ago one Easter morning with my mom, two sisters and me. It’s the same photo I used HERE in my office makeover.
This is an easy project. All you need to do is purchase an inexpensive frame from the discount store or even thrift store. Remove the glass and embellish a photo with some vintage buttons, ribbon and a little bit of paint. With a bit of creativity you will have a treasured creation. I love making these for gifts. I will soon be getting my design back from Somerset and I have the perfect place to display this design that I will always treasure.
Next time you’re looking for a one of a kind
“Creation From the Heart”, think about using an old treasured picture and an inexpensive frame to create that special gift for a loved one this Christmas Season. Looking for other creative ideas? Come and visit some of the blogs I'll be linking up with... Transformation Thursday
