Just wanted to take a moment to wish all the Mother’s, Aunties, Sisters, Neighbors, friends… Anyone who had a hand in raising another human being, a HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY. I’m only a couple of years in, and have QUICKLY learned that it is a job that needs A LOT of help from others. So… Thanks!!
A couple of weeks ago, Anne and I took a road trip to Cheryl’s house (WAAAAY out in Haiku…for Maui people, that’s far… for mainland people…it’s about the distance to your nearest starbucks…give or take). She had put together a class making a vintage picture frame. Neither Anne nor I could attend the class so she did a special session, just for us. (Made us feel like QUEENS for the day, too…). It was absolutely wonderful. I am usually on the preparation side of classes, which I do enjoy, but it was nice just to go and create. And she did all the work. And, I gotta say, the result was nothing short of incredible. (All thanks to her design, planning, and execution…I just put tombow on the back of the pieces and stuck them on).
I didn’t want to show this earlier as it was a Mother’s Day gift for my mother-in-law, but now that she’s seen it, I can let the cat out of the bag to the rest of the world.
Here it is:
So, it has a very vintagee, collagee, feel with a touch of pool party. My blog photography skills have yet to be honed, but you get an idea. The primary colors in this are soft suede, very vanilla, and crumb cake. We did a lot of sponging edges. The pictures are printed in sepia tones and just put in where they go!! I had such a good time! Thanks, Cheryl, for a GREAT day and a GREAT gift….
