I sure hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday season these past few weeks. I had not realized that, I hadn't posted for awhile. December is our busiest time for our trucking business and with shopping, wrapping presents ,visiting with friends and creating, I guess time slipped away from me.
I love this time of year...(New Year's eve) Everyday is a new beginning, but with celebrating New Year's day, it reinforces that for me. I get a chance to reflect on the past year, but also look forward to new beginnings, new friendships, reconnecting with old ones, creating my art, etc... On that note, I have been busy creating, trying to grab any free time (not much, most of it, is after everyone is asleep), but any free time is good enough for me. Here are a couple of the things that I have completed and will list in my etsy within the next day or so. I still have another piece to show everyone in the next day or so;
I really love this book and how it came about. I received an e-mail from a lady that asked if I have ever made a book with white and cream colors. I told her that a few years ago, a friend's daughter was getting married and I made her a wedding book. I used her invitations, flowers, etc. in her book to make it more personal. With this thought, I decided to make a book, that could either be used as a scrapbook for someone's wedding, courtship, the birth of a baby, etc.
The size of this book is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. The spine of this book is 3 1/4. I didn't plan on the spine being this big, but as I was making the pages, I just kept having creative moments and the next thing I know, I needed to make a spine that could fit them all in.
The next item is an altered composition book. I love the image of these three kids and how it reminds me to never lose the inner child.
