Reinvent-tage Day 25 - Part 2

Today's Intention...attempt the absurd...


$300 worth of frames and mats for my gallery show...



framed looking back on darkness...


framed paul


So I spent most of the day shopping and deciding just how to frame and mat my art...it was not easy...is this color right...is this too fancy or plain...should I double mat...do I do it myself...do I pay someone to frame...how do you attach hangers...does everything need to be framed...

When I got home I was overwhelmed...unclear...and frazzled...with the help of my friend Wy...she calmed me and helped me see that I have enough right now to hang on November 1...I could make prints and cards and some lower price point items by the 15th...it does not all have to be done by the first...

Okay...so I am breathing now...relaxing some...ohmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....

Rebecca,
I am so bummed. I found a quote yesterday that I so wanted to send to you and I lost it.

You would have loved it and it was all about stepping out of your comfort zone and experiencing something new. DRAT!!

Love,
Julie
p.s. - the frames are gorgeous!

Wow...how great they look in the frames! You have nothing to worry about, girl! Just remember to photograph them for sale online too! I bet some folks around here in blogland would be interested in them. Love, Wy
