this is the before- sort of. i forgot, once again to take a pic of the thing b4 so i had to take one after the fact, so i just turned it over and placed the original pic on top! anyway, you get the idea. :)
good morning! so glad it's friday- today i get to go hang out w/ my sister and some good girl friends for lunch! it is so nice to have a group of gals to get together w/ and gab and eat and gab and eat some more with! we do this several times a month and take turns having it at different houses. we can bring our littles but mine are all in school (at least for another week), and we all contribute to the meal. it is so much fun! speaking of littles, i found these little framed pics(in my mil's yard sale pile, she let me pick anything out i wanted b4 she sold it) of victorian-esque people, which were cute aside from the gold plasticy frames from the 70's. but i had an idea to take out the pics and paint the frames and then i used the backing to paint chalkboard paint on. then i just wrote the first initials of each of my girls on them. "L" and "E" aren't they sweet?
