Recently, I decided to play with my lettering again, and submitted a design in a contest and it's now up for vote...please swing by and have a look if you have time. This card is inspired by the love I have for San Francisco. As a child, my parents would drive us all to visit "the City" each weekend to spend time with my grandparents who would have shopped and cooked for all of us and made delicious homemade chinese dishes that I still can remember and taste in my mind. Growing up as a child driving on 101 out of the city from Chinatown and then driving through the Broadway tunnel through Broadway out to the the freeway was amazing. I still remember seeing Finocchio's and Carol Doda's (that opened my eyes as a kid!), and all of the sights and sounds of the '80's with people waiting in line at clubs with mohawks that were 2 feet high! As I've grown up, the City has become my history and my future as I get to show my kids the places I used to visit with my brothers and mom and dad. From the architecture, historic landmarks and various rich and diverse neighborhoods, to the delicious restaurants, culture and "old stompinggrounds", the City will always have a special place in my heart.
How are you all? What's happening in your part of the world..getting ready for Fall? The elections? Working on some fun projects? I'd love to hear! Thank you so much for stopping by and I appreciate every single comment. ~ Shirley
