Second. Second challenge. This didn't go quite as I planned but when I was part-way into it, I realized that I just couldn't comfortably get where I thought I was going. Originally, I was going to do a 2013 column with wants/expectations but that didn't feel right. However, that's why the title is just "Then" because it was going to be past-then #1, past-then #2, and the then of the future. Instead it's more of a "now" without being in the title.
Make a project showing you and a longtime friend, a family member, or a significant other and how you’ve changed together over the years. Obviously, this is pretty much just me. I honestly wasn't coming up with anyone else that I wanted to feature for this and I'm trying to exorcise some of my own demons this year and putting them to paper may help a bit so I stuck to myself on this one.
Use at least 2 of the following:
1. Include a playing card or game piece. (Scrabble tiles)
4. Include a clock or watch (can be an embellishment, a sticker, paper, etc). I thought I had a large clock stamp somewhere but I can't lay my hands on it. I have some embellishments that would be nice but I LOVE the White Rabbit image and even without the pocket watch out, he's an indicator of time, always checking it, always in a rush.
