oh I didn't know that Lynn, does that mean I'd need aproval for my decal mugs? I state it's a transfer and show my original drawing. I was planning on going into ACEOs which should be ok and possibly cards.
I'm really getting fed up with Etsy.
I thought my websites could be an alternative but I've had very few sales there too.

We have tons in our pound shop, in various sizes.  Check out a poundland near you.  They seem reasonable quality so well worth a look.

I had a look the last time I was in town, going again Saturday so I'll have another nosey around then. Hopefully I can find something :) I've found some I kind of like on eBay but I can never tell if they'll actually be nice or not when buying online.

It's lovely Kayleigh, I was going to suggest a local framer, they might cost a bit more but they usually do a fab job. Dunelm mill sometimes have some nice frames and I would keep an eye out in the big supermarkets, hope you find something nice.  :)

Sainsbury's has a sale on right now, they are doing two square wooden frames for a fiver.  Not sure how long that will last for though  :-\

I love your picture, Kayleigh. What a great idea.

A word of caution. Go for a frame that matches your work in quality.

Ooh thanks Sue, I'll have a gander!
Yeah, that's my other issue Shirley, I need to make sure they are decent so they don't bring the quality of my work down.

Love your picture Kayleigh.  :)  Can't offer any more suggestions on frames though.

Kayleigh that is lovely!!! 

I'm sure Asda and Tescos do frames and they looked pretty reasonable quality wise -  charity shops are also a good place to look,  you might find some with crappy pics in them but the frames are often quite nice.
