Holiday Apologies

You've probably noticed that I'm not posting many finished pieces these days.  My reasons are twofold. 
ONE: I just can't justify sitting down at the computer while I have "work" to do, and
TWO: I've framed so many gifts this year that I don't dare post photos of them until they're in the hands of their recipients.  So, today I'm showing you some things from my "haven't posted to the blog" file that I know were not intended as gifts.
I promise, after Christmas I will catch you all up with the amazing things we've done in the last few months.

You've probably already seen these first two on the "Christmas Exchange" that Paulette Stewart
and her Mom Marsha posted last week.  WHAT FUN I had as I watched them open their presents!
It was almost like spending Christmas with them.  Thank you.  I adore you both.

When, oh when, will I learn to take photos BEFORE I put the glass on them?

And last, but by no means least, a pair of mermaids to hang together as a set.
I wish I could take credit for the lovely mat and frame combination, but alas, Joanne the credit all goes to you.  I merely brought your extraordinary taste and ideas to life.

Back to framing.
Hugs until next time,

Love your framing, the samplers are gorgeous. Do you know who the designer is for the M Olive sampler?
Thank you,

M. Olive here (aka Littlebit). I know how crazy busy Jill probably is, so I thought I would jump in here and let you know that that is a free design from Primitive Betty. Hi Jill!!

They are all so beautiful and love the framing! As soon as I finish my fairy, I'll be contacting you.
