Anniversary and Projects

  I will start right off with a picture of some of the lovely two-dozen roses Jon brought home on our anniversary. We went out to 0/8 Seafood Grill and had a great time and some delicious seafood. I must mention the lobster bisque.

In addition to getting ready for the holidays I am currently working on two art projects.

Heathers book The first is a tutorial for a pretty art journal from Heather at Pretty Petals. I have never done a step by step tutorial like this but I wanted a little impetus and was in the mood to do something that was sorta kinda with a group. I will be posting pictures of the journal as I go. The tutorial is available until the end of the month- she’s already extended it, luckily for me, but maybe it’s not to late to buy it if you are a fast worker. This is a picture of Heather’s book, from her blog. They will all be a little different. Especially mine! Because I found a great book to alter, but it was bigger than the suggested size. So I will have to make a few changes here and there.

Fat Book Valentines The second thing is I am working on a Fat Book swap with Robin at the Thrifty Miss Priss blog . We each make 12 of our pages, send them to her, and she is assembling them and sending the books back. The theme is Winter Whites. I can’t wait to have a lovely art book made by fellow bloggers! The picture is from a previous fat book she did with a Valentines day theme.

I’ve been working on my page and am pretty excited about it, but I’m not going to show it until I get it back all finished. I don’t want to spoil anyone’s surprise!



  1. "And yada yada I never heard from him again."

  2. I really wanted to join Robin's swap, it looks like such a good one!

  3. It does! I'm a newbie at this but have always wanted to do a swap. I am so excited about it!

  4. Congrats on your anniversary and what beautiful roses you received!

    Heather always does such amazingly stunning work...I am sure the tutorial is wonderful!

  5. Oh, it's great. My slowness is due to me, not any difficulty with the tutorial. I'm pretty excited about what I have so far.

  6. I have done 6 of the Heather journals for my 6 granddaughters who are older. They are not all alike, different for each one. Aimed towards the things they like. Took me a long time to get all the books I needed. I had to use different sized books also. Blessings
