so yesterday was my last day of non-holiday unemployment and you guessed it, i spent it in the art room. this is the custom journal my friend laura asked me to do for her sister’s birthday titled “a mother’s heart is the child’s playground”.
the inside features their mom’s hand written recipes, a very special tribute to their mom who passed away many years ago.
the “words” journal was a gift from me to laura, a writer/editor extraordinaire and a good friend. you can check out her blog here.
i attached a fancy piece of fringey string and bead as a bookmarker.
both journals are wrapped in my custom handmade wrapping paper which i make by stamping a large variety of rubber stamps with brown chalk ink all over kraft wrapping paper. i add my little tag line peace, love, joy all over it as well. a bit of fancy ribbon is tied in a pretty bow and voila! fini!
