December Journal

I signed up again for Kelly Kilmers APAD class. Unfortunately after this December she is closing that class till further notice. So this is the cover of my December handmade journal. I'll be posting pages in the future.

The Puzzle Queen

My sister Linda is the queen of jigsaw puzzles. She always has at least one puzzle going at all times. So for her birthday I made her this mini album with every page being a puzzle piece. Thanks to a great kit from Laura Dennison at Follow the Paper Trail. Her kits are the best.

All the colored crystals I used in the album represent her children 's birthstones, her husbands birthstone and her birthstone. It was so much fun to make.

Jillian !!!!

I went to NJ this past week-end. It was my grand-daughter Sarah's birthday and I finally got to see my new "little Goddess", Jillian. This is pretty much how she looked all week-end. She would open her eyes, drink a bottle and then go back to "chillin".
My heart is just so shinny and grateful. I am truly blessed.

Mini Books

Hi everyone....I've been real busy working on my mini albums. I'm making three for Christmas gifts and I'm working on one for a birthday gift. These are pictures of a vintage one that I just finished. Don't know what I'm doing with this one yet. I'm just having so much fun making these things.
Bye for now....stay happy!

Freedom isn't free....someone had to pay for it. Thank you to all the veterans, including my father and grand-father.

Book Love

Over the week-end I picked up this great little book. It's only about 4 inches by 6 inches, but it has 365 daily quotations and a paragraph or two to help you think about the idea expressed in the quotation. They are all very modern quotes.

Besides just giving you something to think about.....I find that the quotations make great journal prompts. It's worth checking out this book, it also makes a great Christmas gift.
