old as the hills...

no...not me, silly blog friends...

OK...I AM old...I KNOW that...

but that's not what this post is all about...

I was looking in a drawer the other day & came across this...

It's a 2005 issue of Altered Arts...




Hmmmmmm...
I wondered why I would save a magazine that's SOOOOOO old...

I don't like trash sitting around...
(unless it's cool vintage stuff!)...

so I usually toss magazines after I've looked at them...

This might be why I saved it...






I flipped thru to see what else was in that issue & found this...



HA! Totally forgotten...

This is when I first started this art adventure...
It's one of about 6 things I've ever submitted...

As you'll see...still lovin' the same color pallette...

The deal opens on the left & inside is a tiny file folder...

I remember thinking...pure genius...ha!




And on the left here...a little card pulls out...

Looks like I have a THING for putting stuff over eyes...
here...




...and here ...
like on my art chick...



I wonder what a shrink would have to say about that!


So the moral of the story??


FATE!

In GOOD company then...

In GOOD company NOW!




We chatted last night & all I can say is...


get ready for some REAL FUN!!!!!


Yep...all caps...

we're TOTALLY EXCITED!


I don't want summer to end...
but we're counting the days 'til the FUN begins!


What else before I go???

Wow - great trip down memory lane - see you and Tim were destined to work together!!!

You are one big TEASE! It's forever until the big CRUISE - how about giving a girl a couple of hints about what we will be playing with??? Just a few...

Nancy said...

Wendy! I'm never one to wish the days away, but I installed a countdown til the cruise thingy on my blog and I AM counting the days until I leave for L.A.
Throw a girl a bone, would you? Just a teeny tiny hint of the greatness to come?

I came over from T!m's blog. Here is wishing you great success on your book.

Donna said...

your vintage book is great.

Such an incredible detailed project! I love the file folder at the start of the book...and about the covering eye thing...yeah, I think you were brainwashed as a child...something about sharp sticks, eyes getting poked out, and yeah....that's what happens when your parents tell you not to play with stuff that can hurt your eyes! ;-) Silly and nonsense comment - sorry!
