Today, we have Milagros Rivera and does she have an awesome story to tell!
Since I was little, my mom used glasses. She actually has had to wear them since her teens. I was the designated companion to help her pick her prescription frames. She always purchased an inside pair and an outside pair. And they were BIG!!!! II loved being able to help her make the decision and I secretly loved trying them. She wouldn't let me try her glasses because she was afraid the prescription would hurt my eyes, but in the store it was game time!
Come of age is here and now it's my turn to need glasses and to bring my daughter with me, and I totally know she has the same fun experience because she tries dozens every time she comes with me!
Back in January for Creativation, I had the pleasure of seeing Sandra again and to meet for the first time fellow Art Sisters, Monica Downing, Cat Kerr and Heather Thompson. My current choice of glasses reflect those treasured trips I with my mom to eye doctor. I enjoy them immensely and they have an effect on people I can't describe. They are a conversation piece of sorts and I have ended up talking with a lot of people because of them. So when the time came to do my collaboration piece I decided to go with this Visage piece I hadn't used and make a me of sorts on the That's Crafty substrate!
Besides giving you a closer look to my textures (I made you a Snapguide) I will give you a closer look at all the people that wore them while in Phoenix!
As you can see we had a lot of fun, and I thought my post had to reflect that equally! Who knows? Maybe you'll get to meet me and rock my glasses as well! Enjoy the next post over That's Crafty!
