a trip to ikea

Digital. Nikon D90.

Until now, I’ve only copies of my IKEA postcards sent to me by my publisher.  I knew that I needed to go to the store and see them myself.

I finally made a trip to IKEA today.  And when I turned the corner, and saw this display – I’ll admit that my heart skipped a beat.  I wanted to announce to everyone that was passing by and shopping (and looking at me funny since I was taking pictures of postcards in IKEA) that these were my cards!  Amazing.

I’ll never quite forget that moment.

    What an amazing moment! You must have been jumping on the inside! No one probably ever saw such a big smile on a person in Ikea before! I’m going to keep an eye out next time we head to Ikea. Is it for a limited time or the whole year?ReplyCancel
