Thank you so much for doing this. I wasn't into it at first but I find that I am enjoying each day and planning on ordering supplies to make it. What are you putting them on? Is it regular size poster board or material and what size? Your generosity, as always, is so very much appreciated. t

I haven't started these but have saved every one for when I do get started. Great idea to break this down into daily tasks. I did buy a frame, though. (a 12x12 scrapbook shadow box,from Michael's).
