Wonder no more...


Hello all... I won't keep you long here at Words and Pictures today, but I am sending you on your way elsewhere!

Lots of you were curious about how the background for my Think and Wonder tag was created... well, wonder no more.

All is revealed over at eclectic Paperie today, so if you hop on over you'll find out how it was done.

Thanks so much for your continued company on this crafty journey.  Your amazing support is a constant source of strength, and hopping around Craftyblogland provides endless inspiration - what a wonderful place it is!


Wonder is the beginning of wisdom.
Socrates

He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.

Hi chica :) I'll head over there right now. The tag has me intrigued...
One other quick question. I'm wondering if it's my side or your blog, but after a few seconds, the background turns a light grey and all the wording fades and it's difficult to read your blog. :( Is it my side? If so, that's fine, I'll just highlight the page and read it that way.
HUGS and I'm off to check out your work.
