Day 338 of 365
A labor of love
Today's experience isn't something that was on the list of adventures but I had a great time doing it. There's a story here so you might want to get a cup of tea.
A few years ago I published my first book, Dear Kane; what I wish we would have said. Inspired by a mother's loss, this story explores the old rhyme about sticks and stones and broken bones.
I've used this story as a teaching tool and also to raise funds to bring awareness to the fight against depression and suicide.
What does that have to do with today?
On my 338th day I learned how to frame a painting.
Today was a bit complicated and challenging even after so many experiences. I wanted this to match the perfection of the artwork it was surrounding. My biggest dilemma, finding a frame that the painting would fit in.
The rest of my adventure involved foam board and staples and what seemed like an endless twisting of framing wire.
I had two goals in mind, a frame and a result that would hang the painting straight. I was excited to accomplish both. As a side note, kudos to people who build custom frames. They have the patience of angels, particularly for consumers who don't know what they want.
I thought about putting up a picture of the framed project but if you really want to see it come to the fund raiser/ music festival where it will be a part of our auction.
Day 338 was picture perfect.
