Mini Art Journal Journey - Week Eleven

3.19.2007


This week's prompt for the mini journal was: your initial. Being Jenny has meant this in my life...I was Jenny Bean from my sisters when young and from my first "real" boyfriend, (thanks to aforementioned sisters and help from my Mother!) Jenny was the casual friend greeting, as was Jen, also went by Jen in college cuz it just seemed to fit. When out in the real world for the first time and in the workplace, I went by Jennifer...thought it would get me more respect or something like that I think. Whenever I was sad and hurting my Dad would, (and still does), call me Jenny Pie...his exact words are, "Oh, Jenny Pie" followed by a big hug. One of my closest friend's calls me Jen..Jen. When we were first dating Ethan called me Little Jenny Hungry Heart and sometimes still does. And now, I'm back to Jen or Jenny...I think! That about covers it! My initial is J for JENNY! :) I used my Scrap Boss by Fiskars for embossing the vellum paper letter with flowers, otherwise a pretty simple card this week just using patterned paper, letter stickers and staples!

I have a funny story. I have been checking your blog for the past week and I didn't see any new posts, I was starting to get worried. I finally figured out today that I had an archieve link saved to my favorites instead of the current blog?? Wow, I am out there! I am so happy to have figured it out and be able to read your blog again, I love it!

I think YOUR card is cooler than mine! Isn't it funny that we are our own worst critics? Let's pretend I made yours and you made mine and then we'll think our own are cool, LOL!
