I DID, on this occasion however, have no idea what to get this friend and his wife for his birthday, so this was the solution. Not one of my "prettiest" cards, but it got the job done. I made this back in February of this year. I haven't been cardmaking all that long, so my collection isn't very extensive! I see these gals who have been at it for 20 years and admire their talent and persistance!
The second "flashback challenge" is at Moving Along With the Times.
They ask that you choose a project from the past that means something to YOU. Maybe your favorite, or the first, or just one that you especially recall
making for whatever reason.
I chose my New Year's Resolution calender.
This, I have always said, was my most prized project! I put this together back in December of 2009, and it took me the better part of a weekend to assemble the Kaisercraft shadow box. The fun part was deciding on my theme and decorating it! Everyone had done the Christmas Advent thing, so I wanted to be different.
I really wanted it to reflect how I felt about some changes that were going on, or about to go on, in my life. We were moving out of my dream house that I had spent several years decorating and making it perfect, I was not working, and I had started on hormone therapy (I know, too much information! LOL!) Let's just say that I had no idea, really, what direction things were going. But I had grand plans.
Things have gone well. We are very happy and my health has improved in some areas. Still working on others.... getting old ... well, just leave it to say, sucks.
So, these are my flashback moments. Both positive and not. But they caused me to pause, which is what these things are designed to do.
Thanks to "Moving Along" and "Flashback Fridays" for encouraging us to do so.
