New Frames in Ori-Janel Creations

New Item added to the already fabulous Ori-Janel Creations items! These frames are 4" x 6" photo sized and come with the inner decoration, so you can choose to keep the matching paper in it, or even put a smaller photo in it and have the background design to keep it looking great!

These specific ones are made with deco rub decorations and sealed with decoupage sealer so that they cannot rub off. Hand painted colors to match the decorations. Sawtooth hanger on the back to hang on the wall, small wooden nub to hold it up straight to set on a table. These are new and very ori-janel (original). I love them and have already sold a few. Get yours, only one of a kind made of each.

"The Three Sisters" Cigar Box Purse Series

I made these purses recently and named them after me, and my 2 sisters. The one purse "Lynae" is my middle name and didn't want to name it Janel, so it's the Lynae Purse.
Each one of these purses reminded me of my sister, so i had to name them after my sister's of course. My sister, Julie, likes the colors pink and black (as seen on her website http://www.fabulousfindsboutique.com/)
The other one reminded me of my sister, Jenny, whome likes retro and artistic type of colors, so natrually I named this purse after her as well.
The red and black one are my favorite colors. I wear these colors in my clothes, my main colors which are black, greay, red, and white. But I also work in an office, so these are more likely to be "professional" type colors. But thru the years seem to have grown on me. Red is my alltime favorite color, but it am an Aries.
Me and my sisters form "The Three Sisters" that came out to be this wonderful purse series. We do have one brother, but I don't think he'd care to have a purse named after him. LOL. I love and appreciate my sisters and I hope they see this as one of those ways of telling them.
thanks for reading!
