word doodles + pics
Many months ago, I woke up with an idea. And bedhead.
The idea was to combine some of my favourite word doodles (at the time) with cool pics.
I mentioned to Ashley that I had no eye for design. She told me that she did.
Hook. Bait. Chomp!
Somehow I convinced her to take my words, combine them with pics I tracked down and make it beeeeyootiful.
I was feeling pretty smug.
Then Ashley showed me the first couple of pages as a mock-up.
I was feeling pretty smugger.
And then Ashley disappeared to Europe for four months.
She was “finding herself.” “Experiencing life.” “Being happy.”
She was being selfish is what she was doing.
She finally returned home.
I didn’t mention the project. I’m bossy, but I’m not pushy.
Or I’m pushy, but not bossy.
Or I’m pushy AND bossy but not a communist.
This morning I woke up to a message from Ashley. It mentioned “e-mail” and a “present.” I logged on and…
It was our project!
I hope you enjoy it.
And Ashley rules!
EDIT TO ADD: HUGE thank yous to all the photographers who graciously let me use their amazing images!
