Esty + FedEx + Snapfish = Major Heart Thumpage

Well this post's contents is pretty predictable from the title...

Let's work through this equation backwards shall we??


Snapfish:  Because I'm a member of Snapfish, Shutterfly, Phanfare, Kodak Gallery, and lord knows what else, I get multiple emails throughout the week with a variety of photo offers and coupon codes.  Last week, I was offered 100 4x6" pictures FREE with any purchase.  I ordered a few 8x10s to try out in the frame in the bedroom (also known as the "Creepy Child Frame")... and ordered 48 prints free, because let's face it finding 48 was a stretch...

moving on...

FedEx:  Yup.  Delivery man came today as scheduled, kind of felt bad for the poor chap since its like 15degrees out.... bbbuttttt not bad enough to not get my package on time....

EtsyA few months back I rambled on about wanting a custom Quote Frame.  After reading lots of mooshy quotes, the lyrics to our first dance song, and even our vows, the Husband and I decided we liked the sample quote best - go figure.  I messaged Renee at Nestlings and a week later we have our custom frame...

It's a beaut!


... in a weak attempt to get your heart thumping (for something you didn't order), here's the anticipatory reveal...

is that even a word??

Time to slice you open....
you look like a bird... or a spaceship
everyone knows I don't care for hot pink, but I do like polka dots...
extra freebies!! such cute chalkboard labels! (and chalk, natch!)
here we go
Yay!!
The frame is hand cut and hand painted, I love that Renee aged the edges...


So after picking a picture from my Snapfish order and cutting it to size, it was time to hang the frame.
(I'm still working on re-decorating the ledge.  Its the home of MANY snowmen during the holidays, now its soo bare...)


And because last time I raved about my Sugarboo Frame I never showed a picture of it hanging in our entryway...

And just because it's worth noting, a 20x20 Sugarboo Frame will run you $250.  My 16x16 (handmade) Nestlings Frame (with my choice of quote, color, and font type) was $65.  --insert heart thumpage here--
