Quotes that Define Me

I have always loved quotes - in high school I even kept a journal in which to keep some of my favorites. It is interesting to look back and see the quotes that inspired me then, compared to the ones I love now. It is almost a reflection of who I was and how I have changed.

I made this little box and album about a year ago, and for some odd reason, never shared it in any public forum. Perhaps because I put it aside in my messy old room. Now, it has a place of honor in the hutch of my new desk. (and the box is now horizontal.) Perhaps someday, I will pull out an old high school journal and do a box about those old quotes. I believe most of them were about and by teenage crushes and 80's music. That ought to be entertaining.








ps: Paper and box are from Melissa Frances.
