Latest Project

I got this poster for Christmas which I love!  But I did not love the odd size which made it impossible to find a frame to fit.  And I did not love the price tag for custom framing.  Hmmm....what to do.

To the rescue!  A piece of half-inch thick foam board from Hobby Lobby for $3.70.  I carefully traced my poster with a utility knife onto the foam board.
And then went around the edges with a continuous piece of masking tape.
Then I hot-glued (because I forgot the adhesive spray at Hobby Lobby) my poster to the foam board.

I love how it turned out!
And a closer view.
I love having this poster right by the dinner table!  Especially if there are any picky eaters at the table!  Speaking of our table, there is always something on our table.  If it's not breakfast, lunch, or dinner, then it's crayons and paper.  Always.  A big ugly tupperware of  crayons, scissors, markers, and pencils.
Not any more.  Yes, there are still crayons on the table
But now they are in this adorable glass canister that I love looking at.
Really, there are few things that make me happier than a glass canister of crayons.  And the little girl using them is one of those things.  I'm definitely feeling a smile and warm fuzzy feelings here!

Thanks for the tips. I have some canvas pictures that I have not been sure how to "frame." Crayons are so cute! Ella looks adorable too :-)

Thanks for the tip on photo back-up. I'll definitely look into that!
