Handmade Kindness - Light Up Pictures

Hello there...
If you are looking for my post on Our Beautiful World please scroll down...

I don't usually post twice on the same day but the lovely Jennifer McGuire is running a challenge called Handmade kindness... click the link and you can read all about it, basically it's about creating a little handmade something to give to family or friends

Last night I went to a surprise party for a friend from my old neighbourhood... She celebrates her 70th Birthday this week and believe me that lady doesn't look a day over 50!
We haven't see each other in a while and all my old friends from the neighbourhood were there ... Their children all grown up with children of their own... I can't begin to tell you how much I enjoyed it. I didn't realise just how much I missed everyone and my old life till I was right back there...
I took a handmade gift for my friend who, I might add, was completely overwhelmed by the number of family and friends that came from near and far to show their love...

It's really hard to photograph but this is what I made


I created a scene with paints and added the cats... printed the verse onto acetate and then poked different size holes through my painted piece before placing it into the front of the frame


You need a shadow box frame to do this so you can add lights and they fit neatly into the back of the frame (held down by low tack tape) and then I used velcro to attach the switch on the outside like this...


I also made one for my sweet friend Pat who has been so wonderful, especially whilst I have been ill for some weeks...



These are my little acts of kindness for the friends I'm so blessed to have

Till soon

Your framed work are so brilliant and precious.
Glad you had fun at the party and met up with old friend, one that I cannot do since I left HOME nearly 14 years, people whom I grew up with are all back in Singapore, and it is hard to get everybody together every year we go home because it is alway short and last minute trip.

This is such a beautiful and thoughtful creation- I had no idea you could buy tiny lights to use in this way- I'm sure the recipients are very happy with their gift.
