For Isla June's first birthday, my mother (IJJ's Mimi), had a local artist by the name of Kim Werfel prepare a portrait painting to celebrate the milestone. She designed it based on one of our favorite photos.
|Isla June- 8 months old. Our first visit to Myrtle Beach.|
And after it sitting in our closet for the past 9 months, I finally had it framed.
I just love it. And it's not actually hung up yet as our walls are concrete, and we hopefully won't be living here too much longer. I can not wait to find just the right place for it in our new house.
oh, do I miss that sweet, sweet little face. 8 months old was probably my most favorite age.
On a side note, I went to a local frame shop and they quoted me $65.00 for a mat and frame. Micheal's quoted me $195.00. And that was with a 50% off sale. So, if you've got any framing to do, local definitely seems to be a better choice.
