Brand new!

As I mentioned, yesterday was my 7 year anniversary (since we've been dating, I didn't get married at 14!)... and Pat got me flowers!
OK, so I asked for some. He still went and picked some gorgeous ones out. :)

I've also been posting new items daily. Just this morning I posted my first ever mixed-media collage!
I made this by covering a recycled piece of cardboard with soft yellow paper. The back is covered in a cheery polka-dot and flower print:
I used buttons, a rafia bow, a short piece of ribbon, a clipping from an old book that says "worth going a long way to see.", and layers of patterned paper and fibrous paper to create interest and depth. I really like how it turned out ... and my pictures really don't do it justice. Why don't you check it out?
