I'm very excited today because my first article as an unruly columnist is published in the Unruly Paper Arts blogozine. This month's theme is Wedding Wonders. And my column, Musings of a 2amscrapper, focuses on wedding lace. With a little help of my friends, Lynn Stevens, Nancy Maxwell James, and Lynne Moncrieff, my column showcases their amazing work with lace. Please check it out HERE and then visit the links to their personal blogs.
Here is the tag I made for my first article:
Rumors Are Flying was number one on the hit parade the month my mother ventured onto an airplane in November of 1946 to meet her wartime pen pal in England. After a brief "in person" courtship, she married my dad in Nottingham, England which was followed by a brief honeymoon before her return to the States. Due to U.S. immigration quotas after the war, it took two years to be reunited.
(The first 2 songs on my blog playlist during this original posting are from the month my parents married. The songs seem so appropriate for the occasion!! )
Details about this Nottingham lace and how I used it in my tag can be found in my UPA column HERE.
In addition to our unruly columns, we have two Reader Art Quests this month. If you haven't yet become unruly, I hope you'll visit Unruly Paper Arts soon!
