Anyway, with summer in full swing, I think I'll have more time to update you all on my progress on different projects (hint: new pattern release coming soon!). You may remember that my Family Craft Swap finished up in March and I posted about what I made. Now I'm finally getting to posting about what I received. My younger sister drew my name out of the metaphorical hat. She decided to get inspiration from a couple of my favorite books for her project. My all-time favorite book is Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde (the audio book version is read by the amazing John Lee and I highly recommend it) and the Lord of the Rings series is not far behind. I don't want to get too much into the significance of each piece of the artwork because, really, I don't want to ruin the experience should you decide to read the books in the future. So, I'll just show you what she made.
Getting this shadowbox framed artwork of pieces of my favorite book just makes me so happy. Looking at it up on my wall reminds me of all the times I listened to the audio book (must be close to fifty times by now!) and gives me a chuckle just thinking about the words, especially since I don't get to listen to it as often as I used to.
Thanks sis! I love it!!!
