I love art, lovelovelove it. If I could cover all my walls and even the back of my eyelids in art, I would. Instead, I have an ever-growing stack of prints and drawings that aren't seeing the light of day. Why?? Because framing those bad boys is EXPENSIVE. So, when I spotted this simple DIY framing solution that brings the price to around $5 a piece, I kid you not, I could hear my stack of art rejoicing. Their time has finally come!

It's no secret that I'm obsessed with wrapping paper and ribbon (Remember my closet? And yes, it still looks the same, only now it has even more wrapping paper... and about three times as much ribbon!).

So, what's a crafty gift wrapping fiend to do? Make her own!
