I will never forget how it felt to watch the Star Destroyer come across the screen for the very first time. W-O-A-H. And the music! I had never heard anything so cool. The story was fascinating. AND AWESOME. A whole bunch of bad guys in an entire galaxy wanted something that only a girl possessed. My 10 year old self couldn’t have articulated it then, but I held on to that Princess with everything, because she could be like me. And then...AND THEN….when Luke Skywalker looked up at the twin moons of Tatooine, I gave him my heart, which he still has to this day.
I hope you’ve had a great month, and that everything that’s on your lists gets completed and that your flowers bloom, and that you do everything you want to do this Spring. I really hope you like your Brass Pack this month. Please let me know what you think.
There is one saving grace about Valentines Day tho. KIDS! Buying the cute Valentines for everyone in the class...helping your kids fill them all out..two heart stickers and maybe a smiley face for the cute boys or girls...and an extra large Valentine for the teacher. And you HAD to get the one that had the sucker stuck through it because you wanted to be the Cool Valentine person. Being a mom is awesome on Valentine’s Day!
What inspires me: The smell of green grass after the first spring rains, the sound of leaves chattering in the wind, the rush of water on bare toes. Sunsets of fire, and nights of shimmering moon beams
The Brass Caliper Lori Embree Owner / ArtistRigby, Idahowww.firstname.lastname@example.orgSeptember 2017 Brass Packs - Places & PeopleEnclosed is your September 2017 Brass Pack based on the Places & People theme. We are fortunate enough to have guest artists Jennifer Evans and Jerusha Hawkins as guest artists contributing. You’ve got to check out their stuff, they are fantastic. This month they have sent you “The Shire’s Beard Balm.” It smells DIVINE, and almost makes me wish I had a beard. I am 50, and close to menopause, so I may get my wish. I hope you held on to the leg of September and summer like I did. I love summer. I do not want it to end. But I’m afraid fall...
