Memories of Arizona

I started making this shadowbox in Prescott Valley while I was there helping out my mom after spinal fusion surgery. I collected wildflowers and weeds and rusty old metal from my walks with Cupid. I saved special goodies from workshops with Tim Holtz and Mike Putman and Art Unraveled.  To me, the shadowbox represents home~~the desert, warmth, peace, familiarity.  It reminds me of fun and relaxation and friends--old and new.  

Today, I am grateful for my Cupid, who has blessed the last nearly-12 years of my life with her devotion, affection, and beauty.  
I am also thankful for the sense of vision.  I cannot imagine life without it.

That is awsome! Now I wish I was
headed up that way this winter.
Looks like you found some really
good things for a shadow box.
