Before I go to La La Land

What a long Monday this has been!

Still no replies to the cases I have open in lj_abuse, so I'm going to push to open at least 6 new ones tomorrow. Provided everything goes well, anyway.

I have spent a great deal of time Photoshopping the artwork for Maggie's birthday present, which is a wooden purse I'm making and embellishing with pictures from the beginning of her life to present. It's a painting/woodworking/decoupage kind of project. The painting I finished about an hour ago, and at least half of the images I'm using I have already gotten into print and cropped down accordingly. I'll post pictures when I'm done, I know it's hard to imagine without being able to see it. She's wanted one of these things for at least a year now, so finally she's getting one. When I say the images start at the beginning, I mean the beginning. I have a picture of her mother when she was about 8 months pregnant with Maggie, it's one of several she had taken and they are some of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. I've done some really special things with incorporating her mother and Granny. I can go ahead and show off the artwork I've gotten so far, I guess.




This is going to be the front of the purse...
Row 1: (l-r)Haley, Maggie's eldest; Paw Paw & Granny; Cole's first tooth falls out
Row 2: (l-r) Maggie & the little boy she saved after he drowned; Nathan, Maggie, & kids; Maggie & her brother Ward
Row 3: (l-r) Maggie & her mother; Avery; Damien & I


This is going to be the inside of the front cover. It's a piece I did of Maggie about two years ago. In the lower left corner is an overlay image of Maggie and her mother Gail when Maggie was a year old.

Hopefully I can have most of this thing done by tomorrow and start adding the hinges, latch, and end grommets. So anyway, I'm off to bed - I'm flat worn out.
