  • Left speechless

    Which doesn’t happen too often to me. My grandson’s mother was making a birthday present for me. She does all kinds of great stuff with vinyl and Cricuit. When we picked up Elliott, she handed it to me and said she was sorry it was late. I was speechless when I turned it over. She did an optical illusion of a picture of my mother. It is my favorite picture of her as it was taken before her brain injury and life as we knew it was forever changed. It also sits on my desk. And she gave it to me, unknowing to her, on the anniversary of my mother’s death. Speechless.
    The picture is clearer than it looks.

                She uses the cricuit machine. It’s all done on vinyl sheets. Other than that I have no idea. This close up picture shows the vinyl rings she had to peel off and place on the plate. She is making quite a good business with this. The picture is next to the window mom would look out.

                  The Cricut machine is a wonderful tool. I have used the one at the library and for a bigger project borrowed one from a neighbor.
                  I have cut letters for a church sign restoration and an air brush stencil for a motor cycle restoration.

                  What she did with this photo is really interesting.
