Sufjan Stevens has GOT to be tapped into my soul and all it feels at this time of year... why else would he have written these songs for me?
Two of my favorite things right now- a beautiful yellow teacup that I found at the town dump (this particular color yellow owns me) and Rice Chex Treats* that my husband and I are battling over in the "Challenge to see who can eat more". This was my breakfast. It is cereal after all.
This papercutting is for Diana... my husbands little sister who is wonderful and talented and is going off to college next year to become a famous singer or songwriter or music business leader. She writes her own songs and this was based on some of her lyrics (of which I am forbidden to publish because she is in the process of copywriting them). Let's just say that the bridge in the background plays a key role.
and in case you didn't hear about this nonsense... click and DO SOMETHING... especially for all of my fellow crafters making heirloom, quality, TOXIN FREE toys
*did you know that Rice Chex are officially Gluten Free?
