As you know, I can't say no to a swap. When Amber and Lena put together the art swap, I jumped at the chance. Not only would I get to make something fun and creative, but I'd get some new art to hang on my walls! I have a HUGE pile of things that are waiting for homes (we're working on building a house so I haven't bothered to hang them here) and I really want to make a statement wall in the new living room. Something centered around my family and our portraits, but not exclusively photos.
I didn't tell any of that to my swap partner, Megan from Absolute Mommy, but she must have had intuition. I think we both struggled a little with finding "just the right thing" for each other (not to mention the fact that neither of our pieces have actually shipped yet - yay etsy and walmart), but she wound up sending me this:
Thank you thank you Megan for this awesome piece of art. And many thanks to Lena and Amber for the idea - amazing!
