À toi, pour toujours


... À toi, pour toujours means "Yours Forever" in French! I hope I got that right... I don't know French at all!!

I am making a wedding gift for someone & of course, it's all last minute!! This is a time when I think I can truly call myself an artist since I am really all last minute & ADD ~ I have so many projects started, that have never been completed!! What's with that and artists anyway...?



Okay, so back to the French phrase... I found it here http://www.a-night-in-paris.com/french-love-phrases.html so hopefully it's correct (especially since it's wrapped & going to the recipients today).

Have you ever made something, and you like it so much, you really hate to sell it ~ or in this case, give it away?? LOL!! Well, this one is one of those, and since it's made with vintage bits & buables & pieces, it's the only one... can't make it exactly the same... of course, that's the beauty of it as well.



On the back, it has their wedding date ~ today, January 3, 2009 ~ and the front just "Cherish"




I am working on some new soldered collage pieces to wear ~ hopefully they will be finished by next week... again, remember ADD... and I am NOT exaggerating!!! :-)



Happy New Year ~ oh, and one of my new year's resolutions is to blog more often! If you have any pointers on this & how I can actually make it happen & fit it into my ADD day, please advise quickly!! :-)
