Thing Thursday - SUPRISE Revealed!!

So... almost a year ago, I wrote about a surprise that I was working on. And I'm pretty sure I've dropped snippets since then (but can't re-find them on my blog). AND I CAN TELL YOU NOW!!!

Happy Birthday Gramma!!



From April 2010 to December 2010, I painted portraits of my cousins as children. Thank you to everyone who helped me collect photos of each of us at around 3ish! (you know, that age where you still look really cute, and yet you still look like you?)


It was SUPPOSED to be a present for her anniversary... but I wasn't done. Then it was supposed to be for Christmas... but they weren't all dry (and the frames weren't made...). BUT, I DID make sure that it was done for her Birthday! Which was this past weekend!! So the fam through her a party, and I got to give her these paintings :).  And she loved them :)

Love you Gramma.
