|Picture perfect - Wollumbin|
The invitation to our young relatives wedding asked for handmade or recycled.
They both have a very strong commitment to sustainability and living lightly
which I agree so strongly with.
After wracking my frazzled brain, December is the busiest month in my year,
I thought I chose a perfect gift to make.
A handpainted and decorated album to store precious memories
along with a selection of all the bits and pieces they would need.
I love personalising albums.
Choosing elements to suit perfectly.
It all takes creative time.
Then of course I needed a card.
This is made from a vinyl sample.
Stamping, painting and beading
surround my beloved butterflies.
A most pleasureable use of time!
I enjoyed considering and writing our wishes for them together for the back.
As Super Star and I approach 4 decades together
some things must be right!
Of course a gift must be wrapped.
Recycled brown paper, coloured and primped.
Messy and inky I surely was, from that play.
Their wedding was lovely.
A wonderful day!
I hope they keep beautiful memories close to their hearts.
Yes we artists give.
Of our time and inspiration.
Enjoying the anticipation that goes with our love.
