Creative juices are flowing again!

Hey Guys! Some of you know I make these 3d frames and a few of you have even purchased some of them . I was mostly making Christmas but have been trying to come up with some everyday items. After the holidays I kind of went through a little spell where I didn't want to make a thing! I would go to all the craft stores and just stare at stuff. Finally, I got a few ideas. I've made the wedding and bible frames before. I'm just trying to come up with ways to make them different. I am going to show you 3 frames I have recently made and am in the process of making more. I am also going to be making some hanging initials for little girls rooms too. These frames are listed in my Etsy store. The first one would be perfect for a wedding gift! Remember you can click on them to enlarge.

Wouldn't this one be perfect on a piano?


I made one similar to this for my mom and she loves it. This is one of her favorite verses.


I will show your a few more things I'm working on soon. I just wanted to post these to let you know I do have these available for sale, but also to give you ideas. Maybe you will want to make one for yourself. There are endless possibilities! I would love to know what you think and maybe you have some ideas you could share with me. I would love to hear them!

Kristen, these are beautiful. Your creaivity astounds me. My favorite is the same as your mothers. Isn't it "wonderful" when our creative juices start flowing once again? I hope you've had a super w/k.
hugs ~lynne~

Your frames are really adorable. And, what is really neat about them is that they are one of a kind. I really like them all.

Melissa Miller said...

Oh my these are all just beautiful and so detailed.

I have an idea...:)
Have your ever made one for an Anniversary?
My tenth is coming up in February and something like this would be a lovely keepsake.
Just a thought. :)

Angie said...

These are so pretty! I totally know what you mean about not being very creative after Christmas. I am starting to get inspired again though!

Melissa Miller said...

Hello, Okay... I have a few more ideas.
Baby Boy and Girl?
I know my sister would have loved something like this as a shower gift when she was pregnant with Noah last year.
Initials or even three initials together. Most people I know are crazy about monogrammed anything. A frame like this would be stunning! I'd buy it. I definitly want an Anniversary frame if you end up making one.
Hope I helped. You had probably thought of all of these ideas before though.

I'm doing a new post tomorrow on tables. I've had so many ideas for new posts I'm actually confusing myself. LOL!
I need a blog notebook or something like that.
Oh now I did it...you've got me thinkin'....
What about a "Blogger" frame? Too funny huh?

Have a wonderful Sunday.
~Melissa :)

KMfamily ;-) said...

this is my first post here..I found you just before the holidays through another blog...geeze, sorry but i cant remember what blog it was.
Anyway, it is like a breath of fresh air when the creative juices start flowing again. I had a similar post a month ago and Im still going.
here are some ideas that might help

birth dates -maybe with a cake
"in rememberance" - of whoever
all holidays
graduations
a 4 leaf paper clover-who doesnt need good luck
hmmmm..your right the possibilities are endless
well I look foward to more posts..hope you can stop by me sometime

tam said...

Hi Kristen! I love the frames you made-very cute ideas! I love the wedding one-maybe one with the names and dates. I think we have those stalled creative times to rev up! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
~Tam :D

Lynette said...

Hey Kristen - I love all your frames and I agree with Melissa - annivesaries would be good, names and dates included, Valentine's Day, Easter - with bunnies and/or eggs in spring colors and then some with religious themes, Meghan is a St.Patrick's baby so there's an idea, I'd love to see them and would be interested in buying for my little foyer table!!

Momovthree said...

You've done a beautiful job! I especially love the music one, so pretty. I'll bet some spring themed frames would sell well this time of year. I know I am ahead of myself and dreaming of that first spring day. I can't wait! :)

Kristen said...

I really like these 3D frames. When I finish redoing and start decorating I'll keep these in mind.
Just some ideas that popped in my head
flower/garden theme use someones prized flower picture or a nice dried flower

pet theme custom make when someone tells you what pet they want featured

mountains/nature theme with rich brown wood frame and natural/neutral colors you could use pieces of rock, leaves, moss

Now you go work your magic!

Dawnie said...

those are great..you did a great job. I think my favorite is the bible verse.

marty39 said...

What a cute idea. Love the frames for just anything. So beautifully done. My favorite has to be the Bible verse. I also love the "Foot prints in the sand". That would make a great one also. Hugs, Marty

Hope you're having a great weekend, my friend!
Love ya,
Chari

hugs ~lynne~

Chris said...

They all very pretty and I see you are getting a lot of ideas too. Isn't our neighborhood wonderful. I was thinking they would make a great retirement gift too.

Your frames are too cute! I like all the themes you've shown. I enjoy my visits to your blog. Love your new vases, too.

niartist said...

Kristen your talent never ceases to amaze, and your art is so pleasing and beautiful! Love it love it love it!!! I'd buy one right up if were pet-oriented. I am constantly searching for cute Boston Terrier or Golden retreiver type things that aren't too "kitchy".

squawmama said...

Wow Kristen these are truly beautiful and yes they would make the best gifts to give someone... Your creative juices are flowing just right... Loved them... Happy New Year sweetie...

Connie said...

Hi Kristen,
I love your piano box. My Mom was a music teacher, and is not with us anymore, but I would love something like the above to thank her for what she gave us. Also as a reminder of her. What do you think of that idea ?

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

Kristen, I really like these. All three are really nice. I bet they will do really well in your esty store. I can never wait to see what you're up to.
Hugs, Terrie
