I'm Not at all Crafty Really . . .



Just wanted to share my favorite project from Christmas . . . I saw something similiar at a craft barn in Midway Utah and wanted to customize it to work for me.

I searched throughout my house and came up with all the appropriately sized frames I could find and spray painted them all black. The original had all matching frames, but I really like the random size, shape and texture of these frames.


Then how to do the lettering - after considering many options, I decided to see if my DIL, Cami could help me out by doing the letters on her Cricket scrapbook tool with the vinyl. That worked really nicely, she used two different fonts to continue the random look for size and shape. The vinyl just goes on top of the glass in the frame.

Must admit . . . I really like how the project turned out! It kinda reminds me of one of my favorite scriptures . . .

Matthew 21:22
And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive

It did turn out fantastic! They look great all painted black. You should make some for you to keep.

I LOVE THIS! What a great idea. They turned out fantastic!
Thanks for sharing. I think I will steal it.


I just use blogger to size my photos. I leave it set on medium, in the middle.

If I want a couple right next to each other I do them small with no layout. Then once you are in the compose part you can drag them to where you want or click on them and resize them by dragging the corners.

I'm sure there is a better way, that's what I have been doing. (And the only way I know how truthfully.)
