goodness for ya.
here we have the inside of the envelope from my bank statement + epoxy stickers from michaels $ spot + my recently aquired *BLACK* stickles!!! (how did i not know about these sooner??! and more importantly: how did i LIVE WITHOUT THEM??!)
pursuant to the idea of incorporating more "real life stuff", a page from a day my friend lelia & i spent shopping: we went to the mall, (i got jeans) and to wholefoods, (i got this recipe card thingie that's the page's base) we had chinese for lunch, (there's my fortune) we ran in to michael's for 5 seconds on the way home (where i spotted--& grabbed--those MAMBI rhinestone flourishes as we walked past them on the way to frames!) i LOVE the immediacy with which this page makes that day "come to life" for me without even reading the text!!! (which is on the back)
jeff did not understand this joke...and didn't find it remotely funny, even after i explained it! (nevertheless, it cracks ME up!) it's a page from a catalog in which PLASTIC MANNEQUINS are utilizing a (presumably VERY HOT) bbq grill (!!!!!); in the dymo'd text, the wife mannequin warns the husband mannequin, lest he suffer the fate of "uncle bob"!
...ok, nevermind, jeff might be right...
(yet i am--AGAIN--chuckling anyhow!)
finally, may i present to you, my single favorite page i have EVER MADE?
(ok, a slight exaggeration, but i *DO* love it!)
(it is very VERY "i can has cheezburger"!)
(what can i tell you? yes, i am both that obsessive...and that immature...)
(kitten pic from an old "ideals" magazine; stamps from k&co outlined in white signo pen)
text reads: "we iz kittehs, not chikkins!!! we not *GOES* in basskit!!!"
tomorrow: THE COVER!
(which is much more sensible...and yes...even *pretty*...with flowers onnit...and a cute bird!)
