I come from a family of artists. Painters, musicians, poets (dontcha knowit), and well… pretty much anything and everything artsy. I’ve always been creating things. Art. Crafts. Whatever. I really can’t remember a time when I wasn’t making something in my life. We’ve always had art supplies laying around. This artistic trait goes way back in the ‘ol family tree.
My whole family has quite the collection of original artwork from my Great Great Uncle Earl. Some family treasures. I don’t personally have any original pieces, but I am lucky enough to get a couple of his prints (hand signed + all that goodness). These prints are so important to me. I wanted them protected and preserved for years. So, awesome Michaels sent me a gift card to try out their custom framing service. It was perfect timing. I wandered to Michaels and a very helpful guy, Larry, guided me in a framing adventure! We looked at a ton of different mats and frames and ended up with some pretty framed stuff for the wall. I’m so happy with how they all turned out. I really tried to pick out frames that I would like 5-10 years from now. SO tempting to get those chevron painted frames… but…
This was my first time getting anything custom framed, and I gotta say it was pretty quick and painless. Just waited a couple weeks and everything was ready! Happy Wednesday!
Note: Michaels provided me with a gift card to purchase custom framing. I was not paid for this post and all opinions are my own.
