Handmade Wedding Gift


A few weeks ago, Brian and I attended Mike and Ali Johnson's beautiful wedding at their home in Loomis.  (Brian and Mike both work for Sac Metro Fire.)  

Prior to the event, I scanned the couple's registry, and while there were many lovely items on it, none of them jumped out and said, "Buy me!"  

So my next stop was Etsy, where I searched for a handmade wedding gift.  

Ever see an item online and think, I could make that!?  And make it for less.

That's exactly what happened while browsing the Domestic Notions shop on Etsy.  I spotted a framed art piece that I loved.  But I didn't like the price.

So, I decided to create a similar piece using an Aaron Brothers frame, a double mat, card stock, a heart punch and my computer.  

It's probably difficult to see in these pictures, but the hearts are filled with the lyrics to the couple's first song as husband and wife: When You've Got a Good Thing by Lady Antebellum.

Wishing Ali and Mike a long and happy marriage.
