My favorite song ATC

My favorite song ATC. My favorite song changes favorite song is one that makes me think, makes me smile, cry, remember, motivates me, makes me dance. My favorite song pushes me to make me walk that extra mile (literally) or to get the laundry off my couch and put away (ugh) My favorite song can make me feel sexy when I am cleaning the bathroom in my grubby clothes, a period zit on my chin the size of the full moon, my hair frizzy going in 50 different directions, the hair on my unshaven legs long enough to braid. It is amazing how much you get done without realizing it when you are lost in a song. When that song is bringing thoughts to life, when that song is stimulating your tired body to move like you have slept for a week. Usher and I walk together, Sometimes the Black Eyed Peas come walk with me, and Maroon 5. Janet Jackson has come also on occasion. Steppenwolfe, CCR, Chicago, Journey, the when I am feeling mellow. The list goes on and on and on and on.........You name a song, I would say .....oh l love that song. It was hard to pick a favorite song. In the beginning I picked Bye, Bye Miss American Pie. Then Amazing Grace. What a beautiful, moving song that is. Then I thought about doing a clipboard ATC and listing my top 10. I could not even pick my top 10. Then I thought......ugh just pick a song that is easy........what a cop out I can't do that......there is no challenge in that........then I thought about the reliquary necklace I did in June. If I could save time in a bottle was the theme for that necklace, it was a tribute to my dad. My favorite song was picked. I was so frazzled that I turned the ATC's in thinking I was missing something......I had them sitting in front of me for an hour saying to myself....think, think, think....what did you forget. They look naked. After they were turned in I realized I did not put the ribbon on, so back to Redlead and I stood there feeling like a total dork putting my ribbon on! I am learning to embrace my dorkness and love it ! Everyone should embrace their inner dorkness on occasion.
Okay, okay, there is also meaning to this ATC, many people may not get it or see it, many will probably not care but here it is...... The hands are off the clock and over to the side, because without hands on the clock there is no sense of time, and with no sense of time you may feel a sense of eternity. Which is why the word eternity is stamped across the face of the clock (watch). The main body of the ATC is done on accetate to represent the bottle, and the words to the song are the message in the bottle. Get it? Got it ? Good! Hmmmm....did I, the not the brightest crayon in the box, not the sharpest tool in the shed, the wheel is turning but the hampster is dead, dorky blonde just have a deep thought? Kinda scary, isn't it ma?! Posted by Picasa
