Each print has a 3mmm white border and is lovingly produced to order. Unframed prints arrive flat, wrapped in cellophane, in a super stiff envelope. For an extra fee we can frame the print for you. The lightweight wooden frame we use is slim and black. It has a hook for wall hanging. The front is perspex. Each frame is hand finished in the UK by Fine Art Trade Guild commended framers. The product is dispatched in a purpose-made picture box.The print is H30 x W21cm (A4) and when framed is H32.5 x W23.5 x D1.2 cm.
A Recipe for ParenthoodA dollop of devotion A dash of dedication A smattering of sleepless nights And a drop of education. A tablespoon of challenge A teaspoon of affection A pinch or two of worry And a drizzle of protection. A grain or two of patience A soupcon of surprise A sprinkling of laughter And a splash of compromise. A spot of wit and cunning A slice of perspiration An ounce of hope and wonder And a cup of conversation. Mix up the ingredients As listed up above, Serve with lashings of support And unconditional love. Copyright Joanna Miller 2014. (Author's permission required to reproduce this poem.)
