Well, a little less than a year later and I’m posting again. I know I shouldn’t make any promises to myself (at this point in my life!), but I have recently become re-energized to breathe life back into my blog. I’ll just take it one week at a time and hopefully the motivation will stay!
I’ll start with a little project I’ve become passionate about as of late. I realize the post title might be misleading, as it has nothing to do with “pets”–we are currently an animal-less household. ; )
What I MEANT to say is that lately I’ve been crafting hand-painted monogrammed frames. I have just done a handful for friends as gifts so far, but I’ve had so much fun creating them. And I’d love to *someday* parlay it into a small business.
I wanted to share the designs I’ve done up to this point with you. They began as plain, wooden, hang-able frames that have the perfect space for a big fat monogram underneath. : )
This ikat design I painted for my friend Brooke’s birthday. She doesn’t have a baby yet; the one pictured is mine. ; )
I did a similar style in a blue & purple colorway for my brother-in-law’s girlfriend Julia on her birthday.
Like I said, I’ve gotten such joy out of making them and I’m glad to do something that (I think) makes a special and personalized gift.
I have a few other designs in the works which I will share soon…
Have a happy Monday!
