What? Yes, so today I worked on assembling my frame of all the little mini masterpieces my downline and I made, as well as the little mini masterpieces that I will be sending to the stampers who participated in my Online Mystery Workshop in March. Thanks to the amazing Cecile Ortiz for the inspiration for these gems. 

Added since original post: I removed the picture of the finished frame my downline and I did because of confusion. In this day and age of pinterest and all the social media it gets mixed up where things originate from.  So the frame my downline and I did we personally did it, but we cased most of the little masterpieces from Cecile so I would rather you go look at her original one and make your own like we did.

I had so much fun making them I thought, hmmm...I wonder if anyone would be interested in getting one in the mail each month?

So what I am going to do starting in April (can you believe it is just days away?) is if you place a single $50.00 or more (before tax and shipping) order in my online store, you will get a little masterpiece of your own (they will be different each month). Please note: workshop & club orders do not count. More details will be posted on April 1. You can collect them to make a frame, you can use them on a card, they are cute even in a little frame all on their own.  I am thinking perhaps the little bee one would be cute for April, what do you think? I'll figure it out and post it on April 1, so you know what one you will get. Fun eh?

Since this is something new I am trying, I'll be testing it out for a couple months to see if you like it. Holler if you have any questions.

A few questions, since original post:

Q: If I place a single order of at least $50.00 before tax and shipping each month in your online store, I will get a new mini masterpiece in the mail each month.

A: Yes, you need to place a qualifying order each month in order to earn the monthly mini masterpiece.

Q: Will the little rectangle scallop piece be included?

A: Yes your little mini masterpiece will be mounted on the rectangle piece all ready to use.

Q: Can I pick what mini masterpiece I get?

A: Sorry no, each month I will post what the mini masterpiece will be for that month, and then you can decide if you like it or not.

Q: If I order $100.00 before tax and shipping do I get two mini masterpieces?

A: No, sorry you just earn one a month. Mean aint I?

Q: Since this is a new thing, how can we get the cage and eggs, I missed the March Mystery Hostess Online Workshop?

A: April 2013 is the only month you can let me know (after you place your qualifying order for April) that you would like the bird cage mini masterpiece. After April, I won't be offering that one anymore (I hope you understand).

Q: Is the frame included?

A: Sorry, no the frame is not included, each month you will receive your little mini masterpiece in the mail, it is up to you what you use to display them on, or if you want to simply add them to a card or scrapbook page.

I picked up the frame at Hobby Lobby, it is an 8x10. I put a piece of the Fan Fair DSP underneath the glass, and then added some of the Artisan Embellishment Lace ribbon on the sides, the little masterpieces are actually stuck on the front of the glass using dimensionals. Tip: that I totally thought of after I had them half attached. Lay your glass on a grid sheet and use it to help line everything up.

Well this old gal is off to beddie bye.

Have an awesome Saturday and thanks for stopping in.
