Aaanndd, it's Crafty Pants Friday. What better pants to be wearing than crafty ones? That's right, no kind. Wanna see what fabulousness I have for you today..... Wellll, alright!
Probably the only thing that you can find more of in my house than lamps, are picture frames. I looove picture frames. Any and all kinds. I've seen a few variances of picture blocks around Hobby Lobby and what not, but I wanted to make my own. That way I can make exactly what I like, and what I think others might like... Hopefully I will be opening an Etsy shop soon.... Maybe....
These aren't particularly hard to make, but a tad time consuming. I hate waiting for paint to dry. But this project involves all of my favorite materials, wood, paint, scrap book paper, mod podge and embellishments! Yeaaaah.
You like? I hope so! Sad story about the picture on the burlap block... The man in the middle, my dad, is the only person still alive. I posted a few weeks ago about losing both of my grandparents (paternal grandmother and maternal grandfather) in the same week... That was a pretty rough time for all of us. And today is the first birthday I will have without my Grandma, and Grandad. My mother, the beautiful lady toasting my dad, passed away when I was almost three of breast cancer. And her mother, the lovely lady on the far right, passed away of the same strain of cancer only a few months later. This picture holds such a beautiful memory, yet so much sadness at the same time....
*And after that personal note*.... If you like these picture blocks, guess what?! You can enter for a chance to win two (2) of your choice! That's right...
