The unfinished frame....part 2

I had the frame pictured in my head... and man, was that thing beautiful.

I went out to buy all of the things necessary to make the frame that was in my head, but I couldn't find anything like I was imagining.

So, I settled on some paper that wasn't quite right.

Then, I messed up when I was cutting it and had to settle for a shape that wasn't exactly the shape in my head.

I painted it black and modge-podged the paper on.

I then stared at the darn thing for HOURS. It just wasn't right and I was soooooo stuck.

So, I decided to put it down and go to bed and come back to it fresh the next day.

Fast forward 4 days.

I picked it up today to see if I could get something accomplished and noticed a big huge air bubble in the middle of one of the papers. I mean huge.

So....I guess what I am saying is........I totally messed up my super cool frame and now I have to start all over again, except that it has black paint and paper with air bubbles all over it.

~sigh~

This is life.

Oh, and I read this today on a blog that I love: It is better to be happy than to be right.

That quote spoke to me. It said:

You ain't happy with your frame and it JUST AIN'T RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stay tuned for more episodes of "As the Frame Turns".

I remember feeling the pressure when I was doing the frame, too! Yours will come together. And just think.... it's beyond awesome; it's awesome PLUS air bubble! Can't wait to see it!

Darlin, it won't matter what your frame looks like . . . once you put your picture in it, it will speak of YOU and will be right!

Love,
Mom
