We Are the Tooth Fairy (closeup)

This is a smaller page inserted between two 12x12's.

 

It's 8.5 inches wide, so I slip it into an 8.5x11 pg. protector and then cut the plastic down to the height of the page. The page is made by a piece of paper which I folded into a pocket with open side. My ephemera sits inside of it.

 

Journaling on pg. 4: Mom and Dad named me, “Lisa Noell,” with the intention of calling me, Noell. With one exception I have no memories of being called Lisa, and so I have don’t associate myself with that name...So it surprised me when I took a good look at my baby stuff. My baby announcement must have included both names together because the congratulations letters say, “Lisa Noell.” Plus, went beyond that. I have birthday cards that call me Lisa...I think Mom told me that Dad’s parents called me Lisa for a long time, as you see on the outside of the birthday card from Grandpa Buck. But even Mom’s sister-in-law, Aunt Leanna, called me Lisa in the one-year-old birthday card she sent me. ..This is all so strange to me because the only person I ever remember calling me Lisa (and only periodically out of affection) was Dad. Only when it’s his voice saying the name do I feel like it belongs to me. Whenever anyone else calls me Lisa I either don’t realize they mean me, or I feel like it’s a fake name.
