I have been down with a sinus bug these last couple of weeks and feeling as if someone ran over me and decided that wasn't enough and backed up and gave it another shot for good measure...lol Well, I am finally back with the living and feeling much better. So, what better than to make some art to get me going again.
I have been working on some different ideas and direction with my art and decided to take a break from that and make some books. This time, I decided to use 5 x 8 tablets and dress up the fronts. I am always trying to think up different ways to make simple, but useful gifts and thought that everyone uses tablets for one reason or another, so why not dress up the fronts. I usually leave one out by our phone and thought that this would be a great conversational piece, but also dresses it up.
These next couple of books are composition books. One is a full size and the other is a mini one. I really love this one. In the middle of the heart, it says; A mother's advice to kids. "Live like there is no tomorrow, Dance like nobody is watching and Love like there is no risk".
This next book is still growing on me...each day, I find that I am loving it more and more. I used a couple of colors that are a little out of my comfort zone.
I listed these in my etsy. Well, here's hoping that everyone is having a great day and if you are not feeling quite yourself, keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.
I had sinus problems last week, too (I think the Michigan weather is to blame). Glad to hear you're up and arting and posting. The tablets and compostition book are lovely - I really like the idea of beautifying the things we use all the time.

Hi Nellie - I love those composition books! BTW, you described how I had been feeling with my sinuses too. So many people are sick with that. I hope you're feeling much better!
