The journey of creating begins with a spark from deep within. The artist continues on the loom of life and throughout time a beautiful tapestry takes shape and form from the luscious fibres, brilliant gems and precious pearls we encounter along the way....

Ahhh... A Belated Valentine Layout of a Very Special Couple

You know, I just needed to cut a few letters out last night to finish this layout but I just didn't have the opportunity to get it done!  Today I couldn't get home fast enough to finish it as I didn't want too much time to pass by from yesterday, that special day of love and cupids.  This is a picture that was snapped at the celebration of my nephew Shawn and his gorgeous bride-to-be Amanda at their engagement party.  They are definitely in love and expressing their joy as they make a promise to one another on that special day.  One year from that kiss they shared another special kiss when they were married on an exquisite August afternoon last summer surrounded by hundreds of family and special friends.  It was a joyous occasion for us all!  They have since celebrated several firsts on this their first year of marriage.  They are a special couple and I certainly feel honored to have played a role as they planned their wedding by handcrafting their invitations, all 175 of them.  I was honored to be included like this and I so enjoyed creating and crafting each and every one, pouring love into them with my thoughts of marriage, hope, love and thinking of all the wonderful possibilities of their life together.  Congratulations once again Shawn and Amanda as I look forward to celebrating years with you both and looking forward to the family that may someday come...  love auntie
