Sweet keepsakes ~ Precious friends

My dear friend Vikki from Humble Heart sent me a wonderful package and I just have to share it's beauty with you ~ beautiful old photo album pages (why do I love creating with these? they are just wonderful though!) she knows me well, wouldn't you say? Old book pages, amazing old keys and hardware, beautiful vintage images and my most favorite gift of all??? A handmade journal the Vikki made herself!!!! It is THE MOST precious thing......

Vikki created the book cover from vintage linens ~ just look at the bird on the cover.....

Each touch, every little thing, is like a hug from her ~

Vikki, I will treasure this always and tuck little photos of our sweet granddaughter inside ~ thank you my precious friend!!!

Look what I purchased from Karla at Karla's Cottage.....
these earrings are just what I love to use in my artwork!!

One more blessing.....I won a giveaway on Denise's blog A Day In My Life, a wonderful felted purse handmade by Denise herself!!!! It's so beautiful ~ thank you so very much!!!!

I've not been very creative this week....I tend to be upset about that. But there's always tomorrow, right? Sometimes other things in our lives take precedence over the studio and that's OK ~ we are so many things to so many, wives, mothers, sisters, friends, grandmothers.....cooks, cleaning ladies.....and the list goes on and on ~ but still, to be a a wonderful thing.

Wishing you a wonderful Friday dear friends,
love and hugs,

I need to get to stop reading blogs and get busy creating. Or take my laptop upstairs and try to create some of the beautiful things you show here on your blog.
Very sweet gift.

The journal is so precious. I would love to have one, too. Do you know of any online tutorials where I could learn to make one?

Dawn, I love your blog and try to check it daily. I didn't know if anyone else is having a problem logging on to it for the last week or not. Everytime I try it takes me several attempts before I can get through. I'm not having trouble with anyone else's, so just thought I'd let you know. Have a great weekend. said...

Thanks, Dawn, I am so glad that you liked your earrings!

Abi said...

Wow! what a wonderful book - the detail is fabulous. How lucky you are. She is one talented lady eh!

Hello my bloggy friend! WooHoo!!! Party day is just a week away! I'm so looking forward to seeing everyone's creative spaces. I have a request... I thought it would be easier for everyone to leave comments if we all turned off comment moderation and word verification during the day (or maybe week) of the party. To do that, go to customize, settings, comments...then scroll down to turn off comment moderation and word verification.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend and a fabulous week. See you next Friday!!
