I was on a tear for new Christmas and holiday card designs this year because I have a craft fair this weekend (if you mention this blog, I’ll give you 15% off your purchase at the Framingham High School Holiday Marketplace this Saturday, 12/6 — from 10-4). Check out the new designs on my Christmas card page!

I made all of our Christmas cards this year. There were about 50 different designs, the best of which I put in a video and offer for sale. See the Christmas card page for the video and ordering info.

Well, it’s been a while since I blogged here. To be fair, I did say posts would be inconsistent!

But FramesByDana has been doing well. In December, I got a custom order for a hair salon multi-picture frame. I’ve never done a multi-picture frame before and after much searching in stores, I couldn’t find anything I could use to decorate the frame if I did make it. Necessity is the mother of invention, they say, so I decided to solve my problem by making the items on the frame.

I made brushes (complete with individual bristles), combs, mirrors, scissors (actually two parts glued together), and hair dryers. The brushes were probably my favorite, closely followed by the scissors.

Here’s the pic of the completed frame:

Welcome to the Frames By Dana blog!

Welcome to my new Frames By Dana blog. I needed a place to post all the ideas I have, especially with our wedding coming up (I’m making a lot of things for the wedding, like save the date cards, invitations, centerpieces, and guest books). Posts here will probably be sporadic, but hopefully interesting. When I have time, I’ll try to write about how I get ideas, designs, materials, etc. Stay tuned!
