The best of people
I thought I'd share a Cubby Hole project I did a couple or so years ago. Carol had seen an Artists Paper project in Somerset Studios July/August 209 called Inchstravaganza by Chrysti Hydock and that was to be our summer project.
Chrysti's project was all about art.
Mine was all about the future.
Why the future? well I used punched inchies from get well cards sent to me when I was being treated for cancer... very succesfully I must add it was quite some years ago but it wasn't known at the time how things would turn out. I recieved hundreds of cards and letters ( lots of flowers too... in the days when flowers where allowed in hospital, you could hardly get im my room.) The flowers died but the cards and letters were saved in a wonderful box that contained a fabulous gift from my work colleques. The cards were out of site in an antique seamans chest ( lol he lives in my sitting room). So when Carol came up with this challenge I decided to use punched out inchies from these cards and letters as a permenant reminder of wonderful family, friends and colleques.... and most of all FUTURE!!

Here's Chrystis inspiration from Somerset Studio
Thanks for looking, have a great weekend.
