iPad Sketch and Neat Gift

I sketched on the iPad last night while watching TV. I did have my feet up but not on the iPad.  Ha.

Number 11, shelf
Number 12, made of wood - I said the cabinet for the TV holder/fireplace.  We are not to use an item in a sketch for two things, so am not sure the shelf and the outside are considered one thing.  The little elephant next to the cable box is made of wood so I'm sure that can count, even if you can't tell it is an elephant.

When we were opening presents, Jennie and I received a flat cardboard envelope from Joanna.  We both opened them to find a cardboard frame.  Joanna said we had to put them together at the same time next morning.  We both were a bit perplexed, the cardboard frame had directions, however.  I was thinking, why would Joanna give me a cardboard picture frame???  But we thanked her and next morning Joanna rounded up our frames and we sat down to get started.  We began folding the sides on the lines/scores provided, still wondering.  Then we opened it a bit more to stick in the tabs and what???  The picture of the three of us from Jennie's wedding was printed on the front.  Well, tears all around.  What a fun gift!


The finished frame is about a food square and  can sit on a table or hang.  This is in a temporary spot.
