I am really taken with chunky wooden ‘canvases’…..Thank you ABAA!  My first wooden ATCs were .75 inches thick.  This ATC measures 1.5 inches.  Having wider sides gives all the more room to play!

This one has a foundation of pattern tissue and why not while I was all sticky from creating my chunky arch for MMM last night.  My husband even cut some 1.5 inch chunky arch shapes!


I Love this quote from Oprah, it is so nice to feel more hopeful about the future and the present again… has taken many years.  I actually mean that on a personal level, learning to live again after the loss of a child almost ten years ago.  I realize now when you say the words “hope” and “change” people may be thinking politics.

“When I look into the future it’s so bright it burns my eyes” ~Oprah Winfrey
