Hello Skip to my Lou, A Southern fairytale, and According to Kelly followers!

I am so excited that I have been asked to be a part of Bake Sew Craft month! 

Let me tell you a little about myself!My name is Leslie!

I am the wife of Jason, the mom of Brock(10), Jaylee(3), and Daxen(1),Special Education teacher, and craftaholic!

I created my craft blog a year and a half ago to share all my crafts!

 Some of you might have heard of it,

I have 1 link party a week!
On Wednesdays I host the link party,

This is where anyone that has created something can link up their projects and
get inspiration from other bloggers.
Anyway, enough about my blog and myself.
Today I would like to share a cute and easy craft that can be used for any theme or holiday.

Since Christmas is right around the corner I want to share an easy present idea.Decorative frames!

I am in love with the cute decorative wooden frames!

I looked around and didn’t want to pay a lot of money for them, so

when I came across Cut It Out Woods

I was super excited to find them

at a cheap price.

They look like this when you get them.

You then have to decide what color to paint them.

Since it is close to Christmas I painted mine red and green.

Then you can add a printable in them, a family photo, or leave it blankso the recipient to put what they want in it.

I left mine blank and wrapped jute around them.

I would be thrilled to get these for Christmas, even if I had to
paint it myself. I hope this helps to give you a quick easy present idea.

Head on over to Night Owl Crafting for to look around and link

up to my link parties on Wednesday!

Thanks to  for letting me share my blog and easy picture frames with you today!
