Custom Painted Slate Frames~

Sewing Tools Just Must Be Pretty!

  So I admit I kind of chuckled at the flower encrusted hammer my Mother gave me for Christmas one year....who would need their hammer to have flowers on it? I kept thinking.....fast forward to years later, while I am standing at an embroidery frame for 8+ hours a day....and found myself thinking.....this should be pretty too!  I have found there is great joy in having ones sewing tools decorated, and for me, an even greater joy in being able to provide something pretty to bring joy to others! There's a lot of 'Joy' going around....as there should be in life!!  I have been waiting for this frame to get to its new owner so I could share it~ its one of my favorites!
  I have painted it with my signature roses, forget me nots and pansies....oh the pansies~ they just leap right off the frame~ I love how they came out and may need to paint me something with pansies on it now!
 I have made a new Header Page on my Diamond K Folk Art blog for simpler ordering of slate frames that includes paypal buttons and a shopping cart for adding extras~ so you can  buy a plain slate frame, or fancy with paint and monogram, all without having to wait for me to email you back!  Wait time currently is about 3 weeks for a painted frame, as I have a bit of a line formed from when I was up home, but I am doing my best to catch up!

As you age, a mom gets smarter and smarter. I agree whole heartedly that tools should be a joy to work with. For one thing, it gives you the little boost that if you are worth such pretty tools then you must be good at what you do. Yes, put a direct PayPal link for frames!!
