Quoth the Raven....Nevermore

 I worked on a most awesome quote layout today! I love, love, love Edgar Allen Poe's; the Raven. It's one of my favorite poems! When I was a kid, I was fascinated by EAP! I love his works!
When sent the journal: More Than Words, I fell in love with the journal. Ursula, as always, blows me away with her art! The cover itself is a work of should be hanging in my art room for me to view everyday. It's beautiful! Anyhow, I was very excited for the theme, it's so fun! But, also so scary as there are just so many quotes, too many to choose from! I ran the gamut, I chose a dozen and for two weeks was going to chose one of them. Then this morning, I woke up at 5:20 (on a Sunday), I decided that since I was up...I pulled stuffs to work on the layout....I had settled on a layout having to do with dancing. But, while I was looking for my favorite female stencil...I found all my raven stencils. Everything changed...I totally lost all desire to do a dance theme and jumped at the EAP, Raven theme. Sorry Ursula, it's dark....but, it's me! I hope you like it!

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore —
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
"'Tis some visiter," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door —
            Only this and nothing more."
—Edgar Allan Poe
