I think it's important for kids to participate in gift giving. Children’s art, while not always recognizable as certain objects, always reflects their energy, joy and generosity.

The most treasured gifts are the ones given from the heart. The Gilded Edge is offering two special promotions for children to create one-of-a-kind gifts to give to Mom, Grandma or a favorite aunt this Mother's Day.
The Gilded Edge will hold open gallery events on April 24th and May 1st from 10-5. Children are invited to decorate a free 8x10 mat to embellish a 4x6 photo of themselves, which may be brought from home or taken at the shop for $1.50. Art supplies including crayons, markers and colored pencils will be provided. For an additional $15, customers may purchase selected custom moulding ready-made frames to fit the decorated matted photos.
"I think it's important for kids to participate in gift giving,” says The Gilded Edge co-owner Susan Jacobs. "When my children were small, I had them decorate mats for their photos to give to their grandparents. Children’s art, while not always recognizable as certain objects, always reflects their energy, joy and generosity.”
