gift

30th birthday gift for li'l sas
I made this for my sis for her 30th birthday. I draped it in disclaimers, about how it was craft and not art, that it was amateur and I really need to get a straightedge, that I wouldn't be offended if she didn't hang it.

She loved it. She said it was her favorite present she'd ever received. I told her if she was just trying to make me feel better, I was sufficiently duped.

I think this is so beautiful and had I not seen some images I recognized I would have thought some amazing artist in NYC made it and sold it at one of those modern crafty boutiques . . . Seriously, it's gorgeous and so cool. You are really good at so many things.

dude! i love this! it is most definitely art. you need no disclaimers!!!

GIRL! that is *gorgeous*. Aren't we ridiculous with our artist selves? I do the same thing, downplaying / questioning if I really am artistic or creative. This piece for your sister is simply incredible. Way to go.

Beautiful Ter! I'm sure Em is thrilled - can't believe she's 30! Still think of her as your "little" sister. Go on with your artist self!! You rock.

I love this, too. And I think that the more creative you let yourself be, the more creative you'll be, you know? What an awesome gift.

That is such a lovely gift, and it's shocking but oh so very real that you would put a disclaimer on it. The words are lovely, the images all provoke the imagination, and the overall design just begs for exploration. It is satisfying on many levels. I want one, too!
