Wise-"sas"dom and wisdom for Nuptials







Two of my friends children hitched and their reception is this weekend. My friend, Ginny, (the new husband's mom) is placing a decorated box in the reception room and a stack of index cards where attendees can post words of wisdom and "caution" to the new couple.

Of course, she told us first. To give us time to think ahead of all that we've learned through our collective 100+ years of marital "bliss".

I started mine last night during the weekly Hip Hop. Above are a few examples of what I finished (and am still working on).

I'm calling mine Wise-sas-dom. Because if anything, I'm going to trickle humor into the learnings I give them in hopes that they can smile through the tough times (or at least after).

All images in my artwork above are from the Unity Stamp Company.

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
