Against all odds

Hello All,

I have absconded for long periods of time but trust me, bad luck has been following me around like a shadow! And fighting all odds, this project (after a lost phone, two migraines and an eye-injury) has won..........I have managed to finish this seemingly jinxed project and I will pat myself on the back for this.

This project is unique in many aspects.......I have written the poem myself and this is one of my all time favourites! I've used a hand-made paper printed background for the first time. I have tons of these beautiful papers but I could never figure out how to use them. This time, I've taken a chance and I like the finished product :) The 'leaves' are hand-cut, from paper remaining as side strips from my visiting card printing. The paper cutting guy gave me a weird look for wanting to save an inch wide strip! But what the hell, I have used them and I love the way they turned out to be! The styrofoam balls were almost an afterthought and I looooove the way they give the 'ripe berry branch' effect to the project. The pink daisies around the text will remain in my memory because my punch has given way after them! :D I will miss my daisy punch and I hope I will be able to replace it soon.......

Thanks dear S, for placing this order and I hope you like what I have made :) I'll send it to you soon.....
