A Note from Jennifer Larson
I took inspiration from a post by Amy Coose back in February about using your stash, specifically stamps for a background. I took a Polaroid stamp I had and stamped a background of Polaroids to serve as a photo mat, filling in the centers with patterned paper. This was a quick but eye catching design!
I have always been one of a million Jennifers. I remember in junior high being one of four Jennifers in my English class, all of whom were my best friends. I don’t remember hating my name, but I remember feeling it was ordinary. Then when we lived in the Azores I remember watching a TV show about Up With People, and they sang a song called “Jenny Rebecca.” My middle name is Rebecca, so I asked my mom about it, and she told me that she’d named me after that song. The lyrics are so sweet—“For you’ll have dreams to be daring for, long as you’re living, Jenny Rebecca, four days old, what a lucky lucky lucky girl you are!” I’m so honored that she gave me the name Jennifer, which speaks of her love and hope for me.
