Just when you least expect it, someone reaches in and grabs your heart and just won’t let go.
That happened to me a few decades ago when my baby sister was born. It happened again a few days ago when she gave me this birthday gift.
I’m not sure when she first started making collages, maybe in her teens, but she has for as long as I can remember. She creates them for loved ones and puts much of herself into every one she creates.
Making collages, when done well, is a painstaking process that takes hours of time and requires an artistic eye, as well as a spirit of adventure. Rosie is a talented artist with a husband and children and just starting her own business so just knowing that she took all the time needed to create the collage shown above — just for me– means more to me than I can ever adequately express.
And, then there is the content of this collage, I am amazed! In fact, it warms the cockles of this old girl’s heart and will for many years to come.
Thank you, sweet Rosie!
