packing means uncovering memories

If you read Toby’s blog (Kitty Caperz) then you’ll know I’m in the midst of packing in anticipation of a move to a new abode at the end of August. And with packing comes the discovery of old memories and treasures. I found a book that I made in 2000 and it proves to me, once again, that my craft & art have come full circle. memory 2000 a

This book is made from cardboard, covered in glossy magazine photos, with stickers, stamps and photos and bound together using a clothes hanger wire wound around a can.memory 2000 b

Completely nonarchival but who cares? I remember making it and having fun.memory 2000 c

And, 17 years later, I am with my first love, Collage, again. memory 2000 d

 I cheated on Collage by having illicit romances with acrylic & oil painting, jewelry making, crochet/knitting, digital artwork, and scrapbooking.memory 2000 e

But, I’m back and hopefully I won’t betray my Muse again!!memory 2000 fmemory 2000 g

19-Somethin’ #30

This challenge is sponsored by P.S. Annie! It’s called 19-Somethin’, where participants answer a question about their past each day of September. Today is the final day of the 19-Somethin’ Challenge! Wow! That went fast!


Final Question:

30. Reflection Post: What did you think of this challenge?

I enjoyed this challenge quite a bit. Its nice to stroll down memory lane sometimes. I have both good and bad memories about my childhood. This challenge was good in that it helped me remember a lot of the good and put to bed the bad. I wouldn’t want to repeat it too often, but it was a fun September. Here is a group of photos I used throughout the challenge! 


Tomorrow is October and a new Halloween Challenge!  Its not too late to join in on the fun!   Go HERE to find out more about it!!pumpkin-161650_1280
