Holiday Tag Swap

Here are a few tags I made for an online tag swap...I had fun with them, even though it was a last minute thing.
  Can't wait to see what I get in return from EC! 

It's crazy how quickly we are dropped right into the holiday season that is Christmas.  And, with 4 more journals laid out, and so little time before the next event...well, I am hopeful!

So, what are you working on?

The Calm Before the Storm

And by storm, I am not referring to the weather.

I won't even show you what this lovely desktop workspace looks  like now.  Mostly because I can't find it amidst all the 
CREATIVE CHAOS!  Yep, that's my middle name! 

Hope ya'll are working on something cool for the holidays! 
It's been a while since I have posted...life is that way...and death in the midst is all a part of it.  But we go on, with good memories to keep us afloat!

Stop back soon...I'll show you what comes from the storm!

For the Birds...

This little journal was inspired by a friend who loves birds.  She has nursed birds at her home, and feeds them year round with many, many bird feeders.  She has a beloved parakeet, Mae, who is quite vocal in the morning.  Also, she teaches CREATIVE WRITING, and I thought what a great tool this little book would be to prompt just that...creative writing...or perhaps jot down your greatest joys or secrets.  I have gifted her a special journal complete with feathers, and I can't wait to see what great tale it holds within!
This little journal measures 4-1/2" x 6" and has 36 blank coffee dyed pages, contains a couple pockets with journal cards/tags.  I love making these, and no two are alike...
back cover
And it all ties up with a black suede strap to 
keep your secrets safe...

So, let's hear it...what is your short story about?

What's her name?

Here's a little journal I made, inspired by a tag that came with an order of "crow bags" from Sherrie Cox. 
The thing is...I can't figure out what to name the vintage lady on the cover.  Any ideas?  Please leave me a comment about what her name should be!

With coffee stained pages, and a few tuck spots, a couple tags, there is plenty of room to
"write creatively"

This little book measures 4-1/2" x 6", 40 pages, and it would love to hold your secrets...or a short story!  

I love making these journals..

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.  
So, tell me...what's her name? 

Thanks to Diane and Karen...her name is:
Evangelina Rose!

Mini Bridal Shower Journal

This mini journal was made for a lovely young lady for her bridal shower to a nephew, who will soon be deployed for duty in the USAF.  The wedding was moved up due to his deployment, and they will be married in 2 weeks.
It is a trifold book, measuring 4 1/2" x 12 ", all tied up with lace and ribbons.  I snagged a few photos of the happy couple to add.  
A little tuck spot with 3 wish tickets...

The best thing to hold onto in life...is EACH OTHER! 

3 signatures, with 3 folded sheets each, 
some photos and lots of space for journaling. 
It was passed around for all the shower guests 
to write a message for the bride to be...with plenty of 
space left over for her to add her own memories. 
(with her sister and mother-in-law to be)

I love making these mini journals.  Next up...is a music themed one for my music teacher daughter!

Aloha and thanks for stopping by!
