"Strap yourself to the tree with roots you ain't goin' nowhere." -Bob Dylan 


For my 1st Wedding Anniversary, I gave my husband PAPER with a line from a song we both love by Bob Dylan. In fact he recorded this song on his album Brighter Days (and this was't meant to be a plug) but you can download it on iTunes (Harley Dean "You Ain't Goin Nowhere"). The idea was from this British chick, who does these amazing cutouts. I designed it with my own imagery and fonts, then VERY carefully cut it out, and mounted it on stained wood, and tin frame in its original patina.

We're at about 7 months, ourselves, and have celebrated many a nice evening listening to music while working on projects. Our random-play CD system usually brings us a Dylan song or two along the way! Posted: 3:55 am on November 24th
