Amy's deep reflections

Amy's mixed media, sewn piece conjures up childhood. Her Christopher Robin figure makes me long for simpler times. We are outdoors, by the water's edge, maybe listening to the croaking frogs. Amy manages to capture wonder, and the stimulation that comes from first experience. She's left some prickly pins in the piece and the butterfly/moth is large and dark, perhaps hinting at her title on the flip side:                               
                                     "When did growing up become so difficult?"

Amy has also included an ATC for me, as well as a finished doodle page! The ATC "Stock Market", with its stocking weave, punctuated by numbers, may be another social comment.

The vibrant envelope is festooned with John Foster's stickers and some Dkult buses.  Stay on the BUS.  Many thanks, Amy, what treasure!
