Frames By Dana

About Me

dmccurley1.jpgTo tell you the truth, I was never a huge fan of crafts. I only went to craft fairs and craft stores under duress when I was a child. Until, that is, I discovered that making hand-decorated frames required the kind of artistic talent I have (the crafty, linear kind) and not the kind I don’t have (the drawing things that look like actual objects in the world kind).

I started making frames as an economical line of family presents. I have always believed that hand-made presents trump bought presents whenever possible. So for Mother’s Day 2002, when I was out of work, I made three identical orchid-colored frames with pink silk flowers for my mother, my stepmother, and my sister-in-law. Not only did I discover I had a wonderfully fun time making them and had a sense of pride in the finished product, I also received such encouraging feedback from my family that I expanded those first frames into a whole line of themed frames.
