Garland Reveal

Today is the day to reveal our garlands in the GaGa For Garlands swap hosted by Tamy Ottomeyer.

The interesting thing about any swap is that you have to be a little bit of a detective (personally, I'm a Monk fan!) to find out things about your partner...who she is, what she does, what she likes, that sort of info. That's what makes these things interesting. In reading Robyn's blog (yup, from the beginning) I learned that Robyn has been married for almost a year and a half and her husband has a job that keeps him away from home for weeks at a time, she works in a hospital, she has a lot of friends (people who actually comment on her blog), she has a dog & cat, and she loves to "junk" and craft. The colors she picked for her garland were pink & green.

The garland had to have "celebrate" incorporated somehow and I decided to celebrate Robyn herself. I used an 8x10-inch art board for the garland and chose images that depicted Robyn. She has dark brown hair and I imagined her daydreaming like the lovely lady in the chair. The image of the couple is obvious and the one of the 2 girls represent Robyn and her best friend Adrien who plan Mystery Trips each month. (Such a fun idea!)

Robyn, I hope you enjoy your garland as much as I enjoyed creating it for you. Celebrate your life with joy.

Note: The picture of the garland with the pitcher of tulips was taken when I thought the garland was complete but then I remembered that I needed a the sheet music blossom was added!
Another note: YAY PENS!!!!! Another win over Ottowa last night making the series 3-0.
