Margaret

I recently took part in a postcard swap with my online group QB5. The theme was 'Childhood' and the only restriction was the size (6x4) I have a number of slightly odd childhood photos as my father was a keen photographer and as kids we were often asked to 'stand over there and try not to look daft' while he pfaffed about trying to create the perfect picture. Afterwards we would retreat to the darkroom and watch the magic of the photos unfold before our eyes.
It's quite fitting that my brother is looking through milk bottles as I still remember him arriving home from school everyday and devouring the entire contents in one long slurp.
I'm wearing my father's hat and of course a hand knitted cable jumper
Our house was always full of patterns, wool and sewing stuff
As my computer and I are having 'issues' I've dedicated a post to each of my swap friends. I feel so privileged to be part of such a generous and talented group of art buddies, thank you QB5!. Posted by Picasa

I love your card... that photo should've been some kind of advertisement for something!!! I, like Carole, will put my blog post up soon....I'm off to get my foot dealt with this afternoon....

I'm with Linda-- you and your brother look like models for some ad. It could be a contemporary ad for a hip clothing company. :)

Your dad's pfaffing about was worth it! I think you need to use more of your family photos in future projects. You have great material!
