Well, she's still here. At least I think so. Hope you think so too when you see the two collage cards I created today.
Who could resist this little guy? Yes, he's a guy, an adorable image from PaperWhimsy. Toddler boys used to wear pretty little dresses. After keeping grandson Bobby on a regular basis since he was 3 months old, I understand the practicality of a little dress every time I have to change a diaper. (Note: Bobby does not wear dresses. His mom has always dressed him like a little boy. I'm just saying how convenient it would be just to lift up a little skirt rather than fooling with pants every time he needs a change.) The words here come from Robert Louis Stevenson's "A Child's Garden of Verses".
I'm mounting these little collages onto greeting cards. I thought that would be a good format for them so I could sell them either on Etsy or perhaps at craft fairs or art shows. We'll see. I might just keep them for when I need a card for a special friend.
About my cryptic message on my last post (see it here), no one has figured it out yet, so I'll reveal its meaning. As I was working on the bird collage, I was humming that beautiful gospel song, "His Eye Is on the Sparrow" which was inspired by Matthew 6:26 and Matthew 10:29-31. The numbers 40-6-26 stand for Matthew, the 40th book of the Bible, and of course 6 is the chapter and 26 is the verse.
"Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?" (Matthew 6:26)
"Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows." (Matthew 10:29-31)
