Wow, I actually made something!

Jackie bought one of my collages for her daughter's room and asked me if I had any collages featuring boys as she both a daughter AND a son.  I shamefacedly reminded her so did I , and uh, no , I had photos collages with boys but not mixed media works.  So here is my first attempt!  I really like how it came out.
I also had fun making these two soft pieces for clients.  One is for a birthday present for a sister who is a music teacher and the other is about the cutest birth announcement I have seen in a while.  Good wishes all around!

It has been a rough couple of weeks.  I did my civic duty and pulled jury duty recently.  Not so much fun as it was a particularly gruesome situation.  I was struck by and grateful to all of the people that make up the public service sector.  The ambulance crews, police teams, forensic professionals, attorneys, social workers and administrative staff all subject themselves to unmentionable situations in the name of justice and healing.  It's impressive.  Peace to all.
