“I looked at the Mixed Media Origins Fairy Tales paper. The man looked like he was full of ideas.
The cracking eggs seamed like the birth of those ideas.
The bulb to me is also a reference to an idea. Putting the bulb into the hand, is taking control of those ideas. I know…I’m odd!”

and because of this, they often creep into my work.
This page not only represents new beginnings, but a desire to reach for the stars and do new things.

    The albums are always fantastic.
    Love Linda’s story of starting her stitching
    with Barbie clothes and that was the
    jumping off place for her pages. Fun
    to remember the past.
    Jana’s hearts are wonderful.
    thanks to everyone for sharing.
