40 Days of Love

Our church is doing a 40 days of love spiritual emphasis ~ starts Sunday. I have decided to shower a little girl that I sponsor through Child International (AKA Christian Children's Fund) with love. I am going to mail her one little thing every single day for 40 days. These will be cards, ATCs, mini books, stickers, tags, just little things. I'm going to include letters and Bible verses and hopefully remind her of God's great love for her as well as my own. I will have to mail two on Fridays and two on Mondays because our little post office is closed on Saturdays, and of course Sundays. And I don't know what will happen on her end, if things will pile up before they give them to her or if she'll get them each day. I think I'll number them for her in case they pile up a bit.

Handbound journals

I have been making a few handbound journals using a chain stitch on the binding. Here is one I actually sold on Etsy. I love these papers and you'll never guess where I got them ~ wallpaper sample books that I got at a garage sale for $1.00 each. (I purchased three of them.) There are so many gorgeous papers in each one. I love them!

Fabric Mini Books - Yum

I have been so getting into making fabric mini albums of all types. My biggest inspiration has been the book, "Make Spectacula Books" by Sue Astroth. I love using up all these pieces of fabric I have. And next year when I'm out garage sale shopping I'm going to grab all that fabric I always see and think, yeah, that's great, but what would I do with all that fabric? NOW I know! Here are a couple of matchbook mini albums I've made.

Valentine's Fat Book Pages

We're always having fun on our mini-booksYahoo! group.
Lately we have been very much into fat book pages. These are 4 x 4 pages. Each member makes a page to send to the other members who signed up and when you are done you can bind them all into a little book. These here are all the cards I received for our Valentine's Day fat book page swap. I love each and every one of them so much. And they come from all over the world - Haiti, Ukraine, Luxumbourg, England and the United States.
