Now and Forever ... in Pictures!

The photograph itself doesn't interest me. I want only to capture a minute part of reality. ~Henri Cartier Bresson

So, I realized yesterday that I hadn't made a collage for "Now and Forever"! I was horrified, and so sat down to do so. I discovered one thing: it's pretty much impossible to locate a sweet-looking (as opposed to mostly naked and provocatively posted) chubby ...er ... voluptuous blonde woman. Mena, my heroine, has curves. I didn't want a model who looked like a death camp survivor.

In any case, here's what I came up with (Gram should be older and thinner ... but for some reason, I couldn't find REALLY old, skinny women either):

The cool thing was, while making the collage, I saw a picture that gave me an idea for another scene! YAY.


DD's been rescheduled for her "shadow day" at that school we're going to try to get her enrolled in next year. It's THIS Thursday. She's actually excited about it -- more excited than nervous, so I'm very happy.

I'll probably be a wreck on Thursday, but for now ... happy.


You Are Opaque Pantyhose

You are a practical person. You don't have any room for fluff in your life.

You are a creative problem solver. You've figured out what works for you, and you just go with that.

You are original and independent without trying to be. You just seem to pick paths that are less traveled.

You are brainy and you love difficult intellectual challenges. You don't have patience for your time being wasted.

Well... that pretty much NAILED me. It's a little eerie...

I knew DD would feel differently once she had enough time to let the idea sink in.

Your DD is going to do great on her shadow day! Just think of all the neat things she'll come home and tell you about.
Good news on the pictures and the extra one resulting in an idea!

Same quiz results as you.

I hope you have a good day!

I'm so happy that DD is excited about shadowing.

I love the collage and also that it helped you create a scene.

re quiz: same as yours and it's accurate.

Hope you had a good Tuesday.

I can't wait to hear about the shadowing day. I wonder what DD will think?

Love the collage. It's interesting to see the puzzle pieces. I'm very curious about how they all fit together.

You Are Fishnets

You are amazingly fearless. People admire your courage and determination.

You have a bit of an outrageous persona, but you are also a person of substance.

You are hard working and on the path to success. You don't give up easily.

You are a thrill seeker who wants to do it all! You love to take risks as often as you can.

How exciting for the shadow day for your DD! I can't wait to hear about it. Praying it's wonderful and a good fit for her. And you're okay with it too!
