Theresa'a Handcrafted Albums...
My friend Theresa is an excellent crafter. She works wonders with lots of mediums. Here I want to showcase two card albums she has created for me. Theresa does not have an active blog however you can find her on FaceBook. I am very fortunate to receive at least one card per month and they needed a home for safekeeping and display. Theresa came to my rescue.
The first album she gifted me was full and overflowing. I didn't even take a photo because so much was falling out onto the table. Here I am showing both albums once I had reorganized the contents. Theresa's cards and ATCs and Tags fit so nicely into these hand crafted albums.
Here you can see the fronts. She even hand dyed and stamped the fabric for the newest album. Cards are held into place with fancy yarns tied around the spine. In the newest album I am using all the same ribbon yarn for holding the cards. These are so beautiful and truly attract attention whenever anyone is over and sees them in my glass cabinet.
Here they are sitting in my glass cabinet awaiting more cards and attention. I enjoy looking through them from time-to-time. I have shared Theresa's cards before on my blog and I am continuing to believe she needs to be on a T!m Holtz design team. Theresa dear I love my gifts and I am truly grateful for our friendship. Thank you lovely lady.
The sun is shining and the sky is blue. Winter is very much here and we still have snow on the roof and ground. Mr. C has had to shovel snow turned to ice off the front walkway and stairs and off the decks. We had a showing this week and we shall continue to wait for the one buyer who loves this home and property as much as we do. I believe Mr. C and I have been excellent stewards of this special place.
JOYful January continues and we are one day closer to my favorite Summer. What are you keeping busy with in this cold month of Winter? I am already seeing lots of Valentine happenings. Maybe it is time for me to do a small display of hearts. I don't think any potential buyers would mind seeing a few hearts in my home.
I continue to Discover...
