It started with an invitation to the Prom...an itty bitty vintage prom...30 of us created our own little pages...about the size of a playing card...we made 30 copies to be turned into 30 itty bitty books. Mary Ann/Mariner at Heart will bind them and send each of the Prom Queens her own copy.
Early pictures posted by the players are amazing and creative and unique. I started with a simple idea that grew and grew, and then the quick, clever little page turned into a she-devil folder with four sides who took on a life of her own...at one time she took possession of the entire dining room table and we were forced to eat lunch at the bar. I did exactly what I said I would not attempt...30 little fabric dresses... 30 little fabric overskirts...30 corsages...I was even heading for the lace and tulle to make 30 little petticoats when I detected concern in Hubby's voice when he asked if I was still working on the same project. Just short of an intervention, I came to my senses, boxed up the pages and sent them off.
But it was soooo fun...for several days in the summer of 2008, I was like 9 or 10 again surrounded by a sea of paper dolls singing "White Sports Coat" and "You're Sixteen".
