How To Make a Picture Frame

I feel old.  I swear…..again…….that I have already featured her!  I know I did………but I think it’s just my old brain.  I’ve been to her site a million times……..well I’ll just remedy that RIGHT NOW!

House Of Smiths

Is she not the most adorable woman?  You can tell she lights up a room.  I can tell I’d love chatting with her.

You’ll love her neighbor gift ideas.  She must really like her neighbors………I only give chocolate dipped pretzels….One of her gifts was from her online shop, Wonderfully Wordy that was featured on GroopDealz this week. Did you get one?  She has some really cute ideas there.  Like this below.  What a great way to dress up your home for the holidays.

She has ALL kinds of fun projects to beautify your home.  Thrifty too.  She found this old sad frame and updated it by taking the middle out, covering it with a trendy fabric…….placing an applique “S” on it. 

Could you have ever imagined?

Looks pretty cute doesn’t it?  Well she’s got a lot more ideas for you to drool over and SO many great holiday ideas.

I just noticed she has a little button that says not to use any photos or content without permission first……..but then it wouldn’t be a surprise.  I hope I don’t get in trouble.  I bet if you all went over and flooded her with comments, we could blind side her with TCB kindness…….and then she wouldn’t even think to be mad at me.  :)


Check out my Creative Girls Holiday Gift Guide #5.  I’ll have #6 out on Saturday.  Also, remember all comments left in the month of Dec will automatically enter you to win a Lisa Leonard Necklace!
