This week, I received a beautiful card and a delightful ATC from Anne at Redanne – a craftaholic who says she does not have a defined style but loves to create! I am going to share her beautiful card on an upcoming WOYWW and delight you with her whimsical ATC today!
Do you ever wonder what is going through the mind of an artist when he or she is creating?
And what thoughts, feelings and associations run through the recipient’s mind?
When I was a little girl, one of the popular children’s shows of my day was Romper Room – a franchised series where hostesses in various cities taught local children The Pledge Of Allegience, good manners and social skills in a kindergarten setting!
At the end of the show, the local hostess always looked through a “magic mirror” to view her television audience. She would recite the words:
Romper, bomper, stomper boo.
Tell me, tell me, tell me, do.
Magic Mirror, tell me today,
Have all my friends had fun at play?
And then begin to name the children she saw in “televisionland”, saying, for example:
I can see Mary and Lisa and Bobby and Sue…
As you can imagine, it was quite a thrill for a four or five year old to hear their name being read on television (and I’m sure, quite believable that they had been seen through that Magic Mirror!)
Of course, the psychological scarring of not hearing your name called was unbearable, as evidenced in this hysterical post, Romper Room Magic Mirror Never Saw Me!
Anyway, I don’t know what went through Anne’s mind when she created her fabulous card – but I thought I’d reminisce and share what went through my mind when I received it!
Have a fabulous day and be sure to:
