A Day Off

Happy Veteran's Day to all our present and past servicemen and women! Thank you for your service.

Now that I have a Goverment job I have the day off. The boys also have no school but they are still asleep so I'm drinking my coffee, enjoying the quite and thought I'd blog again. This is a record for me!

I thought I'd share a little project I was inspired to do by my very talented friend Kendra. Her work has always amazed me since I discovered her on the Junkitz team and now her work with another company that has been a long time favorite of mine Chatterbox. Her talent is never ending, I finally got to meet her in Kansas City AND I got a piece of her amazing work thanks to my good bud Debbie, but that story is for another blog post! So anyway to make a long story longer, here is the tree album that I was inspired to do when I got a look at Kendra's:

I hand stitched the fabric on the front and added some padding under it to make it puffy. Kendra actually sewed her buttons on too to make it look much more quilted but I got to the point where I wanted it DONE! That thing was a lot of work. All the pages are greens and browns and I'm going to fill it with apple picking photos. I also made the little owl myself out of felt and papers. So Thank you Kendra for the inspiration once again!

Another little thing I threw together was this tissue box cover I had bought for my bedroom. I needed a new one once we changed the color scheme. It sort of matches the mini lamp as I did but it's not hybrid this time.

It felt good to get into my scraproom again and I am planning on getting down there more often so I can make some Xmas gifts (if I can think of some)!

OK well that's enough from me for today I think! Have a great Tuesday all!

Wow - cute stuff!!!

That is SUCH a cute idea for an album cover!! Oh I'm inspired!!

Enjoy the day with the boys :) I'm jealous!

PS~Kona isn't that big, and neither is Tiger. She just always looks huge in my pictures :P Tiger is about 65lbs and Kona is like 50/55. But neither is taller than your knee when standing up!
