Christmas Decorations.

This series of little decorations took the theme of the Madonna and child, made from international stamps to resemble the unity and solidarity that Christmas should mean. Sadly by Mary number four I'd run out of charms. And the angel from the top of the tree, she's a real sparkler!

Paris Journal.

I wanted to have a go at some journals and tags which I could give as gifts or maybe find a craft fair where I could market them. This isn't the first as the first I made I gave as a gift and silly me never thought to photograph. The spine is ohh so lovely gold silk and the big P in Paris is made of glitter.
I've started working on a group of Christmas journals that might sell in the festive season, who knows.

New book's in the making...

A page from a little Valentines book I've made, its not done yet but this is definitely a favourite page.
The theme of this page was suggested by the topper used which merges a lovely Edwardian lady with pieces from first world war love letters, I wanted to put in postcards and ephemera he might send to her like the Paris postcard sticker. It had to still feel warm though to emphasise the hope that you'd have had to hold dear when receiving on of these letters.
The last page, Ive gone quite crazy on glitter, the best certainly has to be the Martha Stewart set I received as a gift, the colours are insanely beautiful! I guarantee there is nothing like them!
This one is meant to be more about how messages from a loved one can have a transformative effect.
And remember the postcard I brought a while back, she's found her own place in another book.
