Am-Val Parties

Every year this neighborhood has a cul de sac party. My memory is murky as to whether I volunteered to make flyers (as the resident graphic designer) or if I was asked. I started making invitations featuring a viking character, because our neighborhood is named for the land of the Valkyries. At first I only had time to create a black silhouette of a viking. As the years rolled along, I had more time to devote to developing a character (or two) involved in current events specific to our neighborhood. I thank my hubby for being the inspiration for the viking.  What started as an obligation, when I had zero spare time as a mommy, ended up evolving into something so rewarding.
