A couple of months ago, mom, Sheree and I went to the coolest thing I've ever been to in Hickory - dinner, wine, and therapeutic painting! I painted the tree there and then decoupaged the birds on when Sadie and I moved to Philly. I've been wanting to mat and frame the painting so that I could hang it up here. Armed with my $20 Michaels gift card (thanks honey!) and a mission (in addition, of course, to the magnet board mission last night), I found this 16x20 frame with an 11x14 mat already in it for $7 (!!!).
I'll probably hang it in the empty wall space behind the completely dehydrated, ornament-free, 7' eyesore of an evergreen. I'm pretty tired of having a giant tree in the way of perfectly good walking space other than having a great excuse not to vacuum ("I'll just do it when the tree is gone...no point in wasting energy when it'll look this way again in 10 minutes!"). Looking forward to replacing the tree with...ahem...the tree.
