I have been feeling nostalgic after my last post about the birthday invitations (click here!) I make for my children's birthday parties. I pulled up some of my old photographs of my daughter at past parties. This one was taken two years ago. It is such a cliche to talk about how quickly your children grow up- but when I look at this picture, I ache. She is such my little muse. She can cause me to completely feel like a crazy person- and in another instant, I feel like mothering her is all I was meant to do. Her next birthday party will be in September, and she will share the stage with her brother (we will see how that goes!).
Someone asked last time about my photographs. They are photos that I play with in photoshop. This one I used the colored pencil tool- setting the brightness of the paper to white, and then fading the effect a bit. I also played around with the contrast. I have such a hard time leaving a photograph alone.
Hopefully you can read the Haiku okay. Oh - I did a syllable counter on stained, and it came back as a two... just in case you were wondering :-) I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!!
