(It seriously took me about 10 minutes to unwrap because I kept trying not to tear the paper and doily!)
This antique tintype photograph has so many stories to tell. (You can see the inside photo at Cheryl's blog post here
.) The lovely lady inside is already the inspiration for stories that will make their way into my art work.
Seriously, I had seen the photo on her giveaway post, but had NO idea at the SCOPE of what was included! This photo does not do it justice, but since I have all my other crafting supplies spread out over the dining room floor, I figured I'd better put these all back in the bag. (Gotta keep the husband happy and the kids outta my stuff.)
Papers, ribbons, stamps, antiquing paint, flowers, buttons, trinkets, ...the list keeps going. I am SO excited!!!
Joanie, you are amazing...thank you. I wish I could share with you the creative excitment that is stirring my soul - I can't wait to get started!
To each of you: THANK YOU. These gifts have put a smile on my face in the midst of a challenging week - that is saying a LOT.
I have more exciting photos to share of art journaling (as well as more stories about the STRENGTH and JOY!!), but need to get the kiddos ready for bed. I've already posted twice today - who knows, another might be on its way!
After all, with all of these new goodies, I'm not sleeping any time soon....
