It’s amazing to me that I can think about this project for almost a week with no good ideas or inspiration and then it just hits me out of the blue on Wednesday nights. (And thank goodness it does, too!) I found this fall picture in one of the thousand wedding brochures that I have been handed in the past 5 months. It says, “Dear fall, please take me away. Wrap me in sweaters. Let the changing leaves fall and chai tea all day long.” I am quite pleased with the simplicity of this one. You should know that I am a huge greeting card hoarder. While looking at a stack of them, I got the idea to cut out pictures from those cards. I just know that this is going to be one of my favorite up-cycling trends because it’s sentimental and gives me something to do with my lovely card pile.
This page was made because someone told me that I am an artist. I’ve always thought of myself with separate titles (photographer, blogger, painter, art journaler) but never by this one. To me “artist” is a highly connotated word that to me feels like something to big or strong to describe what I do in this space.
