So, on Friday, I picked up my 2 1/2 year old daughter with numerous painting projects that she did that day. Now, I have a tupper ware bin for my son and daughter, where I put the "good" projects...all the others get tossed, or to be environmental friendly, ahem...recycled. But, I saw these 6 paintings and they were pretty great!
And well, I got an idea for a lovely last minute gift for my family.
I went to Michael's and bought five 5 x 7 frames (on sale for $3.49 each). Then I bought five framed mattes (is that the right word for $1.49 each).
I also purchased these cute little heart and flower shaped buttons to glue on to the frame after I was done.
It took me a few minutes as I framed the pictures just perfectly and cut them out.
I cut out the picture and added it to the frame.
I added the cute little buttons as the last touch, and call it, "Designs by JoJo 2009".
I am very impressed with my creative skills, as I thought I lost touch with my inner self.
Hubby came home from work at 7:30 AM this morning and was quite impressed with my creations. I think I have a budding little artist on my hands. A gift with a personal touch.....Happy Holidays Ya'll!!
