Puppy Mini Album

unnamed-2

The May album for the Frank Garcia Mini Album Parcel Club was a true mini. It is adorable and is the perfect size for a baby/puppy/kitten book. So, I had to make one for Grace. She is two now. I absolutely love and appreciate her enthusiasm and happiness.

Frank sent Prima Marketing flowers. The paper and embellishments were from Crate Paper designed by Maggie Holmes. I want to give a big shout out to Frank because he has inspired me and his parcels are filled with love. He sends a beautiful note each month and it really gives me encouragement and inspiration.

What brings you joy?

Altered Jars

Altered Jars

During my time in Virginia, I really focused on collecting jars and altering them. I gave most of them away in monthly drawings. It was a lot of fun. I hand stitched the burlap and flowers so they would last. I find that glue does not hold up and I have tried various types of adhesive. If you know of one that you like and prefer, please let me know. The stitching is very time consuming, but I want my items to last.

I finally cleaned out my jar collection and only saved a few of my favorites. When I say a few, I’m still close to 30 plus jars. I heard the term organized hoarding the other day and I like that description.

Do you collect jars? How many do you have?
