I'm not the only one in the family who makes stuff! For Christmas, my daughter made three frames for me. Her card said, "Crafty Frames for you Crafty Room." I knew right away I wanted photos of all four of my kids in these frames. So a few days ago, I designed some 5X7 photos using my Panstoria Artisan software.
I uploaded the photos to Walmart (because I wanted them fast!!!) and an hour later, picked them up. Interestingly, I ordered 5X7 flat full photo cards because they cost 68cents each and included an envelope whereas a 5X7 photo (same paper, same finish) cost $1.49 each minus the envelopes.
Here are the 3 photos I designed for the frames:
Here are the frames my daughter made by rolling and twisting fabric (the green roses) and newspaper into paper roses (maybe a pinterest find)?
AND... my son gets into the design action too. He works for a company that designs and sells apparel and other items using the Maryland state flag. He designed these earrings. I got the prototype as a gift from him. Aren't they cute?
I figure heart earrings and rose flowers are both great craft projects for February aka LOVE MONTH!
And by the way - "It's Always

And - if you are snowed in where you live, or even just looking for something to watch on the tele while you crochet... check out THIS series. I found it on my netflix instant streaming account. I've watched the whole first season and I'm on to the second. Pretty funny. I was feeling right at home watching the Norway snow.
