Handmade Birthday Frame

Hello All,

With the wedding date nearing, my days are spent in shopping and trials :) I have been surrounded with colours, designs, embroideries, meena work,etc. As a result, I hardly sum up time to craft :(

Anyways, both my mother-in-law and father-in-law, have their birthdays just a day apart. I had been scratching my head as to what should I gift them. Since they are aware that I love to craft, they would not accept any market gifts from me :) Finally I came up with the idea of making a frame for them.

Often after a certain age, a couples' lives revolve around their children. The love they share, their likes dislikes, the romance in their relation takes a backseat and the needs of children take priority. I wanted to gift them something that would make them feel good about themselves and generate those sparks again :)  Haha.. call it being naughty :P

So this is the frame i came up with. With winters/fall stepping in, I have used some fall colours. What i love best about fall is the how the colours of leaves change and take a brown/orange look!

I added some lovely pics of them together and wrote a poem in gujarati for them.

A close up of the poem. The poem states that,

Their love and care has made this house a home,
Their teaching have brought success in lives of their children
I pray Almighty to fulfill all their wishes!!

This flower was made using Juhi's Tutorial

This is how it looked after framing it up. Its a wonder how handmade articles refresh memories and bring happiness. My In laws loved it and have put it up on their wall !!

Do give me your comments. :)
