Nostalgia


I created this puzzle piece and was overwhelmed by nostalgia.......I inherited a box of handmade gift tags (cut with pinking shears, hole punched and attached with curling ribbon) from my grandmother quite some time ago. All of our packages growing up used these tags and many of them had the type of graphic design that the tree epoxy stickers I used had. My childhood and the early '60s came rushing back and I could see more than just those trees. I find it interesting that one image can open the well for many more to come flashing back. Does anyone else have that happen???????

My 2007 schedule will be light due to probably relocation, but I am pleased to say that I will be teaching at Artiscape (May 4-7). I've wanted to participate in Lisa Ohmer's retreat for years but it normally has been during Sammi's competiting season. This year it is not. Check out European Papers for more info. I am sure it will be a great weekend!!!!
