|A card made for Dream goddesses Birthday!|
When I was very young I made slightly higher wages than my husband but we pooled our money. Although other men balked at my making more, hubby was glad I did!
Yet, when I proudly paraded a new outfit for him, instead of admiring it as I prayed he might, he demanded to know the cost. Disappointed, I wished just once he'd say the new attire looked lovely. Twenty five years, it never happened. When other men nudged him to say " pretty wife," he felt proud. Even though I was complimented by others, it was his adulation I sought!
Once Cupcake was born, I could buy anything and everything for her without a negative reaction! Thankfully not once did he ask the prices! He paid little to no attention to what I spent on her! Which was such a relief. It was the eighties and I enjoyed buying our little princess pretty things! It wasn't unusual to see me dive to the bottom of a bin in search of the perfect shoes to match her outfits! I was frugal about some things, yet not about others and it was ALWAYS about the COLOUR!!
|This is my example of a card gone wrong. It was so cool until I overworked it!|
|Sadly it's pretty ugly in any color!|
My heart swelled with joy at how proud this man is of his wife, the sweet little girl I've adored from the moment she was born. Somehow this man can make a plain black Costco sweater seem so fabulous as his eyes twinkle with pride! That my friends is what brings me the most joy!! That my Cupcake has a man that truly knows and understands what she needs. He supports her choices and truly thinks she's as wonderful as I do!
What simple little things in life make your heart swell with joy?
|The Dream Goddess|
Once I found the face I built it up with modge podge and tissue paper. It was so fun to do that I plan on doing a series of these Goddesses. Depending on what appears in the acrylic. I will of course have to wait to again build a mess of paint like this on my palette, possibly a few weeks.
