I just finished a project this morning for my wonderful partner Miss Barbara and sent my husband pictures of the finished project. His response is too precious to not share. I'm surprised he liked it so much. ^_^
"Wow Jill, I am jealous of your swap partner. I want your art in my home only! That looks really really amazing."
He constantly is seeing stuff I make leave the house, ie for other people's birthdays since this is my first swap. Hardly anything I make stays with us.
Example: A painting I did for my sister for her birthday based off a painting I found on etsy. (its tree related! and maybe it will give others some inspiration, it was easy to make)
And if anyone wants tips or the picture process I took of it as I was making it, let me know! Its only my third painting I've done, and it was super easy to do!
