It's About Time

I first saw altered clocks when I was looking for Christening souvenirs for my youngest daughter. I thought it was hard to alter one. 3 years after, I've decided to conquer my fear when I saw a 3 dollar wall clock at Ikea (that's in Singapore dollars) so I thought it won't be too painful if I mess up the clock, it would then make a good frame. Hehe.

Was I surprise on how easy it was! (well, after getting over the fear of removing the clock hands *wink*) But I promise, it doesn't take long to take it apart. It took me more time to look for the patterned paper that would go well with my photo! Hehe.

This a great gift to your friends and family. And, very economical too!
