As a freelancer, you take the work when it comes to you and you are grateful. This year the universe thought it would be hilarious to force me to be grateful about missing my favorite holiday. Oh well, as Tim Gunn says,"Make it work!"
So last year I became obsessed with haunted pictures. I wanted cool ones, not those terrible ones in fake, cheap, glued on plastic frames. I was thrilled to find two at Michaels in good frames, but two frames does not a mantle make. Imagine my excitement to find these pictures at the dollar store, then follow that with the thought, "@^#% , those ugly frames again!" Luckily I had an epiphany before I left the store - cut off the frame! The dollar store pictures are a perfect 5x7. Once I noticed this, I walked over to the frame section, picked out two frames and left with a ton of creepy cloth and a bill under $10.
Here are the finished products. For all of $4, I got two more of these cool pictures that the kids love.
