On my wall…

Many people have asked what I do with the projects I create.

Cards? Most I send. Some I donate. A few get pitched.

Layouts? They all go into a box, waiting to someday make it into an album.

Mini albums? I never know what to do with them, so I don’t ever make them. :)

And rarely – just rarely – do I put out on display something I have made.

But this one? It is out in my studio so that I can see it often. I just love the photo…

I actually made this one for CHA over a year ago – for Tim Holtz to use in his Idea-ology booth. It was a fun one to create…

Just layered and stitched lots of Idea-ology fun on it…

This photo is extra special to me because I actually remember when it was taken. Colin was a bitty one and I was so very happy. But when he turned 6 weeks, I was hit with postpartum depression and the next 6 months were a blur. But those first 6 weeks? I remember them clearly. And this photo captures that time. Thank God for photos.

Off to relax. This week has been trying. Looking forward to a fresh start tomorrow!

Night.

    Jennifer,
    How special. It is so interesting to see how you use Tim’s line, vs. the way he uses his line. (grunge) I love both ways, actually…..just saying :0)

    This is just gorgeous. I love it framed as a house, with the key & keyholes to match the sentiment. Beautiful photo, and all the more because of its rich meaning and memory. What a special keepsake! Unfortunately, my postpartum hit right after birth, so I was in that fog for 5 months before recognizing what it was! I’m so thankful for God’s grace and mercy in it, but I was even more thankful that there was no postpartum the next 2 births! =P (I think the initial shock with the first had a lot to do with it). May God continue to fill your home with abounding memories of abundant life (and maybe even a new life to add as He desires!) ;) Blessings!
