Poultry Wire Frame

I just LOVE the poultry wire frame that we now sell. The concept is adorable and it's such a fun way to show off whatever brings you joy.  In my case, it's our nine grandchildren.  The cute white frame looks chic and measures 12" x 13.5" which is just a little too small for all our younguns.

So, I improvised using an old frame we had in the garage.  I had so much fun using the 4x4 frames and sentiments featured in the new Artbooking cart.

For the banner, I used Art Philosophy for the flags and letters.  I wanted to use a sentiment that would mean something special to our grands.  Something that shows them we love and support them as they grow into the people they will become.

I had to share the gift I made for our littlest grandson for his birthday.  It's a memory game that includes photos of all his relatives that will be at our family reunion in late August.  Hopefully, it will help him get used to our faces beforehand and then remember us afterward.

When he gets a little older he will have a fun game!  I took advantage of the Memory Game now clearance priced at $5 on the While Supplies Last page of my website.  Because I used two of them I bought another box that would hold all the pieces and decorated it using the same bright primary colors.
