Before & After

The girls and I started decoupaging this window frame last year and finished it up this past fall.
But we couldn't figure out what to do with it.
And we wanted to try and sell it at a craft fair in December.
Back in October I posted this photo on facebook and asked for advice on how we could finish it. Quite a few friends gave their advice and it was so helpful! We decided to put chicken wire on the back of the frame for earrings to hang or to post notes! We then put crystal knobs and ceramics knobs on it for necklaces, belts, and/or scarves. There is also a shelf for rings and bracelets.
We were not able to sell it at the craft fair. But that's alright because its now hanging in my bedroom and I'm utilizing it!
And just to update here, my girls and I are no longer involved in crafting to sell items. Our plate was too full and it was one item that could be removed to give us a little more flexibility in our schedule.
We made some great memories though...and I hope to keep painting now that I've gotten back into it somewhat. I'm still learning that there is a season for all things.
Blessings, Julie

Very pretty. I am glad you enjoyed your crafty ventures, but also good to realize when you need to pull back. Good to hear from you!
