Recenty I got a gelli plate. I took out old acrylic paints a week or so ago, and I practiced using it and some stencils I had on plain copy paper. I had no idea what I'd do with them, I was just playing around.
And then the idea to make a book for Patty popped into my head. I took the previously made papers and stacked them up and "bound them" by sewing down the middle of the stack. Then I added some photos and some cut outs and words, and wha la! a book was made. It's a very personal book, but I thought it okay to share, as I've been sharing my feelings about my friends' battle with cancer and her heart ordeal.
I mailed the book off, because Patty still does not feel like having anyone over other than immediate family members. She's not even yet ready to talk on the phone.
So I wait patiently. When she is able she will call. I know, because she always has in the past.
Sending love to Patty and her family, and continued positive energy and prayers for her healing!
Thanks to those of you who join me in this. It really does help.
I love you, Patty!
