1st up, this adorable Laura Berger print i picked up for Nacho at the One of a Kind Show Chicago a few weeks ago. i love it & so did Nacho.
i LOVE this photo! of all the ones i've ever taken of Cookie, it is by far my favorite. Nacho got pretty choked up over this.
while framing this i learned that i need to start shooting in a large format because this could only be printed out in 4x6 without having to "stretch" it & i didn't want to distort the photo. i have since changed the setting on my camera.
i'd been looking at this frame at Target for some time but didn't pay attention to the fact that it was for a 5x7 photo. i discovered that when i went to put it all together. thank goodness for the college years - i worked in an art gallery for 3 years & did all custom framing. so it was a simple matter of cutting a mat with a 4x6 opening for the photo & just taping it to the back of the mat that came with the frame. in the end, i think it looks much better double matted.
while Nacho got all choked up over that photo, i completely lost it over this one!
this is THE ONLY photo of us with Butterz at Bark in the Park. i framed this & gave it to Nacho's mom for Christmas several years ago. i made it very clear to him last year that it was the only thing i wanted back. i was fine with even a copy. i didn't have to have the original but it was the only photo of Butterz that i did not have. i was a bawling mess people! i could not have been more floored. and check out that frame! that's a custom welding job by Nacho himself. pretty impressive!
and while we got so busy this year that we did not do our usual pre-Christmas puzzles (aka 12 Days), we figured it's never too late to start. so we broke out the puzzle this morning.
and no Christmas would be complete without a little cuddling boxer style! Cookie cuddling of course with her favorite human!
and Baxter cuddling with his favorite bunny Jessie!
hand made or store bought, hope you had a very personal Christmas too!
