The warmest holiday greetings to all! May my smiles brighten the season! I look forward to sharing my latest projects, ideas and inspirations with you in the coming year!
What do you get for your 92 year old mother who has everything?–a photograph of ME! In trying to decide on the perfect picture to send (and incidentally the perfect facebook image), I began searching through every picture of myself (scanning in old photographs) . Here are 54 of the 72 images I gathered. I cropped the pictures to just my face (2″ x 2″) and then arranged them in chronological order. I taped them together into a long strip (144″ long) , folded them in accordion pleats , and placed them in a handmade box with the most recent picture facing out. It doesn’t pop open like a jack-in-the-box, but it does come spilling out of the box—the years slipping backwards until I am 6 months old.
