Hi, I'm back! Where did I go? Nowhere...

Puzzle Piece Trade at Mystic Paper...

These are just the beginning before I start embellishing and adding extras.

I found big puzzle pieces 4x5 in. and sanded the top as most puzzle pieces are shiny. Glued some paper on and trimmed with exacto knife.
This is the one I like best. I probably will do some of each though. I'm digging in my ribbon and maybe I'll add a few gems? I'm hoping there will be others joining in the fun!

Marie Antoinnettte Biography...

I have just read a condensed version of this lady's life. I wanted to know what the appeal was compared to many other queens. She was beautiful and charming and very young. Her story is tragic and lived in an unfortunate time. They actually wore scenery in the hair- the rich. Among other things I would say the art world loves the embellished, and she certainly was!

Friendship pictures...

These two pictures I found in my stash of art photo's. The one above is only 2x3 in. and is so cute. I like how they have their backs to the camera. I wish I knew what ocean but I guess it could be an ocean of my picking!
I hope to find a variety of sizes and edging. Aren't these two ladies sweet!

Friendship Book...

Last year I made this book for my girlfriends birthday. Inside is waiting for pictures. The plan was to make me one like it so we can find old pictures of girlfriends to put inside.
Back of book.

Well this month I finished my version.

I stuffed lots of lace on the edges to show when closed.

I sewed the edges and laced in the pages.

Now we are all ready for collecting the insides. Debbie really liked hers and we are due a trip out soon.

Mothers' Day Project...

I made over a dozen Mothers' Day cards for good mothers that I know. I used old book covers to make hanging ones this
year. This one is for my mom. This is for my sister Patty!

For my Aunt Sharon who plays lots of games with me when she is visiting.

Smaller versions.

I had a lot of fun!

More,More,More,Lovely Is The Rose Book Plus...

Being on crutches has allowed me some time to play and create. Here are some finished pages (if there is such a thing) of my Rose Book.
Book inside it's box with laces added.


Inside of cover.

R is for rose.

I love pockets!

Added a little Marie Antoinette pictures, they go beautiful with the roses.

I love this paper that I got at Mystic. It is sewn through 2 sheets. An instant page with 2 sides. Lace on right has silver threads.

More Marie style pictures.

Old pin says " Trust in the lord." I decoupaged rose on a green tile.

I love this page.

Why do the margins of long blogs get further apart? Does any one know? This bugs me, If you have any insight let me know.
