i found this cool shop where you can save money on custom framing by doing it yourself. the store is set up as a workshop where experts are on hand to guide you through the process. you choose your own matting and frame, they cut the materials for you- then you assemble it yourself, saving you money on the labor cost.  materials are all provided, you just show up. it's fun AND crafty.

i bought this sweet pencil drawing off irana on etsy and then i framed at the diy frame shop in wellington. she kind of reminds me of myself [by way of tammy faye baker]. sometimes by the end of the day my eyeliner ends up looking like this
