Here's a small Goodwill picture I picked up over the Summer. The glass had a scratch on it and the picture was faded so I bought it just for the potentially cute frame. It went into my future projects closet to wait for its some day over the rainbow make over.
And finally in December, its day arrived! Here she is after I painted, glittered, added one of my cupcakes, matching ribbon and a flower to it! Whoda thought? Well, Priscila did. She encouraged me to try and frame one of my cuppies but I didn't think I had a frame. Yes, it's true. I had forgotten all about my poor little ugly Goodwill pic! :< I had been wanting to make something special for a friend so after its make over, this new little cuppy went to live with Twyla! The pink frosting on the cake matches the pink slippers that she made me. :> If you click to enlarge it, you might see that the pink flowers on the frame and the silk flower have been lightly glittered.
For me, projects like this one are even more gratifying than making something from scratch. Now just think, what if someone would have thrown that old Goodwill pic away instead of passing it on to me?! I just know that there has to be more picture frames out there waiting for a new home. That's just one of the reasons that motivate me to keep going back to the good ole Goodwill. And yes, Priscila, I'll make you one, too! ;>
