Memoires in a tin, I have been thinking of my mum a lot lately.
I have been missing her voice, her guidance especially with a lot going on in my life. My art has always saved me sanity wise, not money wise.
So I sat down and made elements that made up parts of my mum to me. She loved to sew and we often received home made goodies. One Christmas I remember I wanted a Golliwog (am I still allowed to sat that Political correctness and all) I remember running to the Christmas tree, Christmas morning and there it was my beloved golliwog. Mum had been up finishing it for me. I hold on to these memories.
Mum was always putting things into tins and jars bits and bobs from who knows where . Mum loved flea market I think that where I got my passion for junking.
These are somethings she had in her draw after she passed away.so that’s what I did in this memory tin to help keep her close to me.
