Glittered photo frame

The daughter and I were walking through Hobby Lobby recently. We came across a really cute photo frame. It was all sparkly in black glitter. Daughter wanted it…I didn’t want to spend $29.99 on it…so we came up with our own.If you haven’t figured it out by now, I LOVE Goodwill! I am constantly finding {Read More…}
