Which Option Did I Choose?

I took my project in for framing today. Although I’m always excited to take a project in for framing, because I’m that much closer to having a fully completed project, I’m always a little bit overwhelmed with all the framing and matting options and colour combinations from which to choose.  I’m a very visual person.  … Continue reading

July’s Amethyst Fairy Progress No. 2
