Yesterday was a very happy day for me. Miranda and I spent the afternoon having a crafty, bookmaking, mommy/girlie good time of a day! We haven't done that in a LONG time! When we have an afternoon together, we usually go junkin'!
I also added a new item...Popcorn Bags! These little bags are just one of those things that always make me smile!
When Miranda and I went to Knittn' Kitten two weeks ago, she bought a beautiful piece of leather and wanted to make a journal and use the leather for the cover.
A few pics of Miranda ...
Miranda's journal is a work in progress but when it's all done, I'll share a picture. I'm sure it's going to be gorgeous with that ochre leather!
In addition to the shop update, I also made a quick little book from a kit...
I still have a lot of decorative papers leftover from my bookmaking days (before I started blogging!) and so I used a beautiful Italian paper for the cover. And I've even started writing in it! Glen and I went up to the local for a pint last night and I so I took this little lovely along and gave it some words to hold for me.
I also worked on the swap I'm hosting for the Moulin Rouge event happening next month. (Eeeek!) Here's a peek of the cover...
So cool that while we were working on our projects, the post arrived and I received the sari ribbon that I had ordered to use to bind the books. Scrumptious!
This dreamy bag from Cheryl...
Oh my lace! I love it so! Cheryl said she got it from Beth Leintz. I'm going to turn it into a purse to use at Moulin!!! Thank you, Cheryl!
Pam sent an amazing collection Parisienne treats! I have no idea how she could possibly have parted with these treasures, but I'm extremely grateful she did! Thank you, Pam!
Sherry sent me a gorgeous copy of Notre Dame de Paris! I SUPERLOVE it! Thank you, Sherry!
In other news, in a week or so I'll be announcing the details of a swap I'm hosting. I'm really excited about this one! And when you see what it is, you will be excited too!!! :-)
