Oh, I'm also finishing up my cupcake swap projects for my buddy that will go out on the 30th. (I'm trying to get it all done today & tomorrow as I have a party to plan for my 3 yr. old, which is happening this Saturday morning! AHHHH!) I'm sooooo wanting to post pictures of what I finished today. It is the ultimate in cupcake cuteness! But, I know my swap partner peruses my blog (**waves at jen**) & I don't want to spoil the surprise! But GOSH! I am itching to post my goodies that will be sent off soon! Don't worry, once I know the cupcake goodness has reached its destination, I will post pictures like crazy!

Fridays are happy, shouldn't Mondays be happy too?
I wanted to show you this coolness of a project. These are belt buckles I got in a stashload of thrifted stuff--thanks granny! I had seen, a loooong time ago, Martha Stewart use square buckles as frames & so I thought I'd do the same with these roundish ones. I tried to find the link to Martha's buckle project, but couldn't find anything.
I just cut the picture I wanted to insert in the buckle & added 2 little round "bumps" on either end, kinda like a lemon shape. The bumps help hold the picture inside the "frame". You could fill the buckles with little pictures, pretty papers, a pressed flower affixed to paper, miniature artwork, a unique stamp, ANYTHING! Attach them to the wall with picture putty or adhesive foam dots. Or, just lay them on a coffee table or desk. Cool, huh?
