~A peek into my sewing room~

With part of my birthday money, I bought a print of my favorite painting. Can you guess what it might be?

Oh, just look around my blog a bit...

On Saturday I got it framed at Hobby Lobby. They are quite reasonable when it comes to their labor costs. I was very pleased. They initially framed it without doing anything to the print, because they thought the print was on heavy enough paper. However, it did buckle a little in the frame. So I had them dry mount it. I'm not sure excatly what is involved with dry mounting, but it bonds the entire print to a poster board, and it won't ripple under the frame. I highly recommend it if you're getting a nice print framed!

Now hanging in my sewing room, "A Special Moment" by Emile Munier:



Now it will be the first thing I see when I go in my sewing room. This print just makes me smile. I absolutely love it! (Maybe it will make ironing go by a little faster? Maybe it will help me keep my sewing room picked up? Hmmm...)

Oh, and another exciting thing about this print? I get to cross off yet another item from my 101 List! My list says "frame prints", but with the size of this one, I've determined one is enough for such a small room.

It's good to know that they are reasonable. We don't have one of those around here, is it like Michael's? I've never had anything framed, but I have a nice poster print from art.com that reminds me of this one a little....it's of a little girl reading and I need to have it framed one of these years =P

Looks great and cozy!

Looks like you found the perfect spot for your print! Maybe I need to add some artwork to my laundry room for inspiration...

Blessings,

A picture that I love hanging on the wall just draws me into a room. Your picture is beautiful, and your sewing room looks very cosy! :o)

It's lovely Tammy! Have you ever been to artrenewal.org? (or maybe that's where you ordered this from). I've been wanting to order some prints fromt there someday.

I love your picture and I love Hobby Lobby. We have one here too.

Victorian children are a favorite of mine. :)

Jenn--Hobby Lobby is like Michaels, only a little more refined. LOL

Mishel--it's less organized than you think! I moved all the junk out of the way for the picture. ROFL. It wasn't too bad though, mostly stuff from projects I had been working on.

Amy--I haven't been to the website you mentioned. I'll have to take a look at it.

Thanks for all the compliments! I love going in to my sewing room just to look at my print! :-)
