I never tire of a lavender line

Rarely do I make two similar pictures. Cards, yes, but if I am going to go to the trouble of making something worth framing, I definitely want it to be unique.  Except for lavender!  I love putting it in lines - that's all I want to do with it.  I think it looks awesome!  Someday I'd like to put a whole series of  framed lavender lines on both sides of the my entry way of my home...but until then, here is a lavender line to share with you.

1988 Confirmation Keepsake

I am so excited to share this idea!  

Andrea, a customer friend of mine is traveling back to Norway to meet her extended family.  Before leaving she and her mom and sister decided to make pressed flower gifts for each of the relatives they would be meeting.  Originally she decided to make pressed flower glass "sun-catchers," but then she came upon this wonderfully unique idea - embellishing copies of her great-grandfather's confirmation certificate from 1888 with pressed flowers, and framing them.  

Adrea emails: "We made 30 of these 5x7 frames with Bachelor Buttons, Potentilla, and Feverfew (they smelled like a lovely herbal tea when they were drying)... I did most of the flower pressing in the Microfleur, and my mom and sister did most of the artful gluing onto the documents, to highlight his name just right!"

Stunning.  I can't wait to hear about her family's reaction to them!
