It's Been A While!

Wow!! It sure has been a long time since I've posted!!! I guess time really does fly when your having fun ;)

The Christmas Season has kept me fairly busy.
I did do a couple things for friends for the holiday. I had done a one for one YEARS ago for one friend for the other. They both asked for another to give to other friends. 
Here is what I had done! The Desiderata Poem
The red and grey one is done in just a regular 8x10 picture frame. The grey and black one is in a 8x10 shadow box frame. 
They are both very pretty and I am pleased with how they turned out

The last one and my favourite so far!! I just love this poem and can't wait to do more!
These will be a hit for the upcoming craft sales. I just hope I can manage to get a few done in time :)

More Desiderata Poems

I never would have thought that decorating a poem in a frame would have
been so popular, but it really is a beautiful poem.
I did a third one for a friend to give as a gift. Another friend saw the one I had done and wanted one for herself, and I did one as a gift yesterday. 
I really like the way they turned out! I hope everyone that receives them is as pleased :-)
I think with the 3 I did yesterday it makes 7 that I have done so far. I still really would like one for myself. I guess I will have to make another trip to Michael's for more frames.
I prefer to use the Shadow Box frames but you can use regular frames. The Shadow Box frames make it so much easier as you have much more room to make it 3D looking.

This was the last one done for the evening yesterday

This was the first one I tackled yesterday morning and was delivered yesterday afternoon

 This was the second one. It didn't have butterflies at first but it need something else, so when I finished the other blue one, I added the left over butterflies. I am really pleased with it now.
