Slightly Altered Pixels

Friday, September 12, 2008

This is me circa 1975. Note the lovely avocado
and wheat color scheme.
Shag rug and paneled walls.
Country charm 'eh?
Some of my best and worst
childhood memories were
while we lived in this house.

This post we are going to reflect
on the good and in particular what
was happening in this photo.
I have just unwrapped what I had
hoped was the Barbie doll I'd asked
for. Instead it was a ....drumroll...
Holly Hobbie doll.

Even then I was into all things old fashioned.
A t.v. addict of Little House on the Prairie every week.
I wore lemon verbena perfume and collected e v e r y t h i n g!
My favorite vacation spot was Cades Cove, North Carolina.
I loved when my grandparents would stop the car
and let me wander through time that had stood still in the
remaining buildings, left there. It just captured me and my imagination,
forever binding me to all things vintage.
So of course this had to be why my parents-
when faced with my request for a fluffy confection
of blond tresses-looked at each other and thought; that's not for her.

If you, like me, love crafting and better yet,
with all things time worn with character.

under the hurricane

So we may or may not have a visit
from Ike-still watching the hourly updates.
I have learned that despite the best
meteorologist skills a storm will do
what it wants to do.

I wandered over to Creative Therapy
for inspiration and found the sponsor this
week is Kerry Lynn/Kenner Road. Now
this chica is seriously my cuppa!! I've
been waiting to get my mitts on her
very first monthly kit! So much so, that I
stepped away from the computer (a collective
gasp was heard)
long enough to get back to my altered
art roots and work on the prompt: FEAR.
Yup, that is the prompt. Now I'm not sure
about you but discussing my fear is akin to
hearing"your next dentist appointment is".
much rather put it away and forget it. (Like
the appointment card that immediately got
lost in the bottom of my purse heeheheh)

EUREKA!! That's it. I've created a Inro.
From a match box even! Inside I've placed my
fears and rolled them up and shut the box.
I've put my fear in the box and it cannot
bother me or scare me. VOILA!
So here it is! Thanks for stopping by! :)
