Once Upon a Time Before Technology

there were girls in frocks. And none of them texted their friends. Imagine that.

Lovely, Mary Ann! I love your collages. I finally hung up my body builders collage that I bought on Etsy. It looks so great in the spot I picked for it. Thanks for making it!

Darla: They are on wee canvases! About 5" square. I'm a sucker for teeny little canvases!

I have to admit I miss seeing little girls in those type of dresses! My 18 year old absolutely would die without her cell phone. She is ALWAYS texting someone.

Your work is gorgeous!!!

Speaking of texting, did you hear about a girl who texted 14,528 times in one month? Luckily, her parents had a monthly texting plan.

Mary,
Did you make more of these? I had these bookmarked on Etsy a few months ago and waited too long. I love the colors and the girls. Perfect for my youngest daughter's room.

Hey Julie,

These are the same ones! Still want 'em? Email and we'll discuss stuff, like collages and life;)

Do you think I could trade a couple of my girls for them?

I think I'm in love with these illustrations -- probably because they remind me of being a little girl myself, and dressing in those wonderful two piece dresses --
