La De Da Pictures!!

You thought I probably meant real pictures, right??? Nuuuuuu, I'm making pictures for me. Unusual yes, but definitely pretty!

I have hundreds of fabrics with roses or stripes or polka dots on them and nothing I want to make since not much is selling on ebay, so I thought of doing this after seeing a similar thing in a collage.

Since I knew that there was no way I could get hubby to cut the wood for me, I went to Michael's and bought 22 of these $1.00 frames, which would cut down on the nagging thus saving a marriage. It was much easier than "nagging" hubby, trust me. I already had some frames so I can use those also because I intend to put them in my kitchen around my soffit. I thought it is a clever idea in several ways: use up some of my fabric, bring roses and such in a cohesive way on the wall, EASY, editable at any given time, brighten up that hard to decorate area, E A S Y!!!!! Plus I love roses in any room I can get them, which does not include hubby's home office. I try to stay out of there for now, but just wait a year or two. Then he doesn't stand a chance against me, truuuust me!!! Hah. Okay, back to covering more frames.............
