Thrifty Message Center Part 1 {pinspired}

Today I am working on another project for the silent auction fundraiser I am in charge of this October for the Osan AB Spouses’ Club. This one started off as 3 thrift store frames, I realize there are 4 frames in this picture, the bottom one is for another project 🙂 I paid $5 at…

I’m Assuaging My Guilt…
