A frugal gift

      My neice just graduated from high school and I wanted to give her a neat gift
      but not spend a fortune. I got an idea from a “specialty” catalog that I receive
      in the mail – theirs was almost $60 and my version was under $15.

      What I did was buy a 16×20 frame from a craft store (AC Moore) and the bought a
      mat that had an opening for a 5×7 picture. I put a picture we took of her and
      her family at graduation in that. The mat has plenty of room for her friends and
      family to write her little notes.

      I was thinking that I’d have to have a mat cut
      special for it, but one of the employees helped me find a mat that was ready
      made. It actually was double matted – the first opening was for an 8×10 picture
      and then had a smaller mat for a 5×7 photo. My neice really liked it a lot too.
      I thought it was perfect for someone that age especially – but would also be
      nice for an anniversary party, retirement party, etc.

      Any occasion really where
      people would have occasion to leave special thoughts or messages for someone.
