I made a little memory box yesterday......for two reasons. Alysn at The Beetroot Tree asked me to make one for a forthcoming exhibition at her gallery on the theme of Memory.
"Memory | Sat 30 July 2011 - Sun 11 September 2011
In support of the Alzheimer's Society we will be inviting you to purchase a memory box pack online to create you own work for display alongside the exhibition."
I decided to make it for my Dad, who died last year after suffering from dementia for approx 3 years. Inside the box are a selection of small photos plus a copy of my 'letter to Dad' which I read out at his funeral.
As its Fathers Day on Sunday it felt especially appropriate that I should make this in memory of him :-)
If you'd like to join in, you can read more about the challenge here and also on Alysn's blog here. There's a £3 charge to help raise funds for the Alzheimers Society.
I made quite a few things yesterday.....
...bread (in my brilliant Panasonic bread-maker)
....and my special Lavender and Peppermint cream. I need to work on some more attractive labels I think :-)
Peachy kept his eye on me for most of the morning.....
....until he fell asleep :-)
