Always, forever, still . . . my love
Hello to you and thanks ever-so-much for stopping in today!
I am 'diverting' from the Christmas Season at hand - as I haven't any finished projects yet to post!
I hope to soon, but I've learned not to promise lately : J *sigh*
Here is a Teeny Mini Album I created a few months back. It is only about 3 or 4 inches tall; and the same wide. It's in a neutral palette and a bit grungy which is my tend (but not really that grungy, since it includes bows!) LOL This was made to hold some very special photo's of my dear late husband, Alan.
The tags are all cut from kraft cardstock. It also includes white corrugated board, cheese cloth, burlap, canvas, ribbon, paper lace, pearls, German glitter glass, and Stickles; and I used Gesso and stencils on some of the tags where you see the raised media.
ABOVE: is a photo from our Wedding Day. We were so young my dear friends~ Many thought we would not 'last.' We celebrated 35 years together in March of 2014. We faced much joy and much adversity; as I'm sure all of us can say~
Here is Alan on Christmas day at 15 Yrs old. That is an 'Ohio State' cap on his head : ) Go Buckeye's!
ABOVE with one of his Dogs. Yes, Alan had very long hair at that time! After all it WAS the 1970's my friends! *sigh*
He was a huge animal lover.
BELOW is a photo of Al and his trusty "Sydney" the 'Cattle Dog'!!! She was an Australian Red Healer; and in his hip pocket ALL the time. You can see how she would 'wrap' herself around him! I had mentioned in an earlier post that when Al passed away she became sick and would not eat. She died one month after him.
My handsome man~
|Alan with his mother and 3 sisters. They were super close and some of the loveliest people in my life. Genuine beautiful souls. We lost his mother the year before Alan. It has been so difficult.|
I need to say that I do NOT have blogging down very well! I had to add my text to the photo as a 'caption' in order to be able to add text at all on this bottom part! I'm confused...
I can not figure out sometimes, how to post text in between photo's or how to get my 'curser' where I want it so I can add text! (Help blog police help!) I can't get rid of excess wasted space between photos and/or paragraphs...and other issues. I need a class for sure!
SOO If I can't get to the bottom of this photo, PLEASE know I appreciate your visit!! And thank you for looking in today~ Blessings to you, Karen
