Beautiful Book of Cards...
This is such a beautiful book of cards. I am truly swooning over this amazing gift I have been so fortunate to receive. My friend, Theresa, whom I have shared about before has no blog to link to. I wish she did as she is honestly extremely talented and makes the most beautiful works of art.
When the envelope arrived it was flat as a pancake. I had no idea what was inside. I pulled out this book, a card and a baggie of delightful decorative yarns pieces. Hmmm...
After reading Theresa's note I then understood what I was to do.
Off to my studio to gather. I keep everything I am gifted by friends in categories. Cards are in a "photo" box labeled cards. The box is rather full so it took me a while to sort them out. My instructions from Theresa were to take the cards she has created and gifted me with and add them to the book.
Here is a stack of the fabulous cards she has been creating and sending me over the last several years. I was so happy to be sorting through this stack and enjoying each one once again. Her work is stunning and rivals any designer out there.
Now to add the cards to the book. Tie each spine of each card into the book with the fancy yarns. Oh I am loving this! The free-spirited yarns draping deliciously over the book spine...be still my heart!
Here is a view of the book opened so you can see the "outside" back. This is artistic bliss!!!
Here (and in the first photo) you can see the cards inside the book. I do believe! Thank you so very much Theresa. This is a gift I shall enjoy every day...not only while it sits on the counter so I can see the dancing yarns but also each and every time I pick it up and review each card you have lovingly created and gifted me with. I am speechless. Bless you my friend. I really need you to have a blog so everyone can enjoy your creativity dear.
Dry weather continues here. We are hoping for some rain the end of this week. Funny that Southern California was having pouring rain and we had nothing. Kind of topsy-turvy.
Mr. C and I had company over the weekend and we enjoyed our time together so very much. We honestly relaxed and got to spend time together without crazy hectic running around. Did a little local shopping and dining which was light and easy.
Still celebrating all those January birthdays and still eating way too much. I will get back into my healthier routine soon...I hope!
May you be enjoying your "New Year Beginnings" and Creative Bliss...
