found myself in Wonderland

I have some pretty awesome news!

I am sponsoring a giveaway at Horsefeathers this week (starting tomorrow) and I'm here to give you a preview of not only the giveaway...but something that is coming out in an Etsy shop near you (namely, mine ;-)

The first Bulletin/Prayer "memory board" in The Forgotten Corner's up and coming Wonderland Collection.

Created using upcycled materials, the fabric is either from fabric sample books saved from the landfill or the not-so-worn-out parts of jeans and is either machine or hand stitched.

Inspired by Mia Wasikowska's portrayal of Alice in the 2010 film Alice in Wonderland it features a pocket with 'Believe' hand stitched in blue thread and many other places and pockets for the imaginative person to leave prayer reminders, quotes, fortunes from a fortune cookie or other mementos and keep sakes. The possibilities are endless.

Includes 37 faux-pearl headed pins to keep everything in place, a tag reading 'The Forgotten Corner presents The Wonderland Collection: Alice', a slip of parchment reading 'Believe' as an example of a pocket and piece of parchment with a quote from the movie: "Sometimes I believe as many as six impossible things before breakfast. -Alice'.

Memory Board measures approximately 5" x 9".

Coming Soon to The Forgotten Corner Etsy Shop more inspired by Alice, the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, the White and Red Queens, Wonderland, and more.

Each board is made unique, each different from the last and cannot be found anywhere else.

There will be an insane amount of opportunities to enter the drawing so make sure to go check it out tomorrow at Olivia's blog and share, share, share the giveaway with friends and family!

in Wonderland...

when I look at the stars...

One of my favorite things to do is stand outside looking at the stars.
It makes me feel so small in a big world. So in awe of the awesome God we have. So in awe of His creation.
What really blows my mind is how its everywhere. The sky I mean. And the same night sky I so love to stand under and watch the stars, is the same sky my friends and family--the people I love--see too.
Its something that connects us all no matter who we are or how far away we might be.
Its something that can't be defined, captured or expressed.
Just awe.

night sky

Is this
The same
Night sky
That you
Look at
With me
The same
Night sky
We stood under
So long ago
The same stars shining
The same
Moon reflecting
The same
Blue velvet

We stood
And watched
The sky
With wonder
In awe
The same
We watched
Drive by
The windows

It’s the same
Night sky
That you
Look at
With me
The same
Night sky
So long ago

Is this
The same
Night sky
That you
Looked at
With me
Stood under
The stars
So long ago

  10. photography

    --sadly its not something I do much this time of year...even more unfortunate is the fact that I recently lost our camera *sob* I love capturing the beauty in life.
