This time my budget is a bit lower and I am cutting corners. I'm able to use a few of the frames I originally bought, but on the larger ones I'm running into trouble. I just cant do it. Every fiber in my body screamed at me when I put the tiny frame with a tiny mat over my print. It didn't look bad, but it certainly did not do the print justice. These prints deserve to be shown off, like a pretty lady in a red dress on the dance floor.
So I'm returning four of the frames and am going to bite the bullet. I'm still going to purchase pre-made, but of a larger, better quality.
And then I will spent the weekend cutting mats and framing prints. Oh fun! Anyone want to volunteer a massage on Sunday night?

All and all it was a very productive weekend and I only broke on piece of glass and miss cut one mat. Luckily both small in size.
