Kia Does Crafty

Since I work at a company that makes craft products, you'd think I craft a lot. Not true. I make stuff, but not really crafts. But last year I was really inspired to do more. Cathie Fillian,one of my favorite crafters, did a series of plates using Mod Podge. I loved the idea. While not as crafty as her, I thought I'd give it a try. For the holidays I presented my parents and in-laws with these decoupaged plates honoring my two grandmothers and my husband's grandmothers. I love the old vintage pictures of them. They are so romantic and I tried to find phrases that fitted their personalities:


Eunice: My dad's mom-I've talked about her. Fisher, homemaker, lovely person.


Pauline: My husband's paternal grandma. Smart as a whip. Still going strong




Edith: Fun-loving and still vibrant.


Cenora: As sweet as they are made.
These were so fun and easy to make. Next time I'll bling them up a bit more. I am looking for more vintage photos and want to try this Mod Podge technique out on jewelry.

These are great! Years ago my Mom, sisters and I did this with fabric on the back of clear plates as Christmas gifts for my grandmother, aunts and uncles. I never thought of pictures. Thank you for the wonderful idea.
