look what i found along Main St. the other day!

You don't have the time and you won't spend a dime
Not even to call me
Oh, you don't know I exist and I wouldn't be missed
If I had the nerve to quit you

reminds me of Alison Moyet's song "Invisible".

Invisible, you treat me like I'm invisible...

i've been meaning to do this custom paper silhouette project for the mister in time for his birthday but i got swept up by an unexpected workload and pre-birthday celebrations for him that its only now i got to finish it.

i got the frames from a friend's mother-in-law who was spring cleaning her house.  it was very dirty but i managed to clean it up.  i would have wanted to paint the frames white too but not now... maybe next time.

i've had the yellow and lime stripey paper for a time now ever since i bought a bunch of them from a shop that was closing down about 3 years ago.  

i used a Design Sponge tutorial for this which you can find here
the mister loves it, by the way :)
