Tick Tock goes the clock, and I feel lately like I have been working against time...too much to do, too little time. School has shifted into high gear along with other things, which is why I have not had much up lately. So, I guess this is the perfect challenge. I was lucky enough to be able to go away for a weekend crop, and I finally finished the album I have been working on for several years, in memory of our mom. It has definitely been a journey back in time, and I've chosen a couple of pages to share and will enter into the challenge here.
It is fascinating to find out about your parents lives before family, and I have always loved the stories about mom going to NYC for nursing school, and then on to serve in WW2 as an Army nurse.
I came across this poem about WW2 veterans written in my Mom's handwriting, which was the perfect complement to the photos of her.
Here is another sampling of pages. As I worked through photos of mom's life in the different decades, I tried to match papers and embellishments to those years, for example, I remember when I was little, Mom only wore dresses, no matter whether she was going out, cleaning, or gardening. It was a lot of fun to work with the old photos and reminisce.
Tick, Tock...a journey back in time...
It is always interesting how things in our lives connect, because today as I sat down to work on this post, I was checking a few things on the web, and found this...
Yep, the bright one in the middle - that's my art journal pages for "time machine", which was chosen in the Top 3 over at the steampunk challenges here.
Time works in mysterious ways!
