New Addition!

Jay and I are now officially patrons of the arts. That is right, people, we can now be admitted into shmancy crowds because we commissioned a work of art for our home! It finally came a few weeks ago and we LOVE it! One of our friends from church back East studied art at Wellesley and is now selling custom collage pieces. Her website is still up-and-coming, but I'll for sure let you all know when it's up. In the meantime, if you are interested in contacting her, let me know and I'll put you in touch! She is awesome. And without further ado, the masterpiece!

It's hard to see how awesome the details are, so here are a couple of close-ups:

I LOVE the water. Here's some off the coast of Asia, to give you an idea.

I can't imagine having to cut out all those pieces so precisely! She did such an amazing job!!

And we of course had to let The Frog have fun with the packing supplies. Nothing like witnessing a person's first interaction with bubble wrap :)
By this time, he understood the most effective way to get the job done. He's a pro already!

Did Amy do this?

Yep! Didn't she do an awesome job? She said this was her first really big work.
