A Bouquet For My Mom

My Mom's birthday is in a few days, and she loves flowers.
Unfortunately where we live there are no flowers at this time or year, 
and the closest place to buy her some is a long drive away.  
I will get her some next time I am able to. 

But for now I got out my hand decorated paper (tea bags, tissue paper etc.) 
and started tearing and gluing to create her this bouquet. 

Which I then mounted on a card, ready for her birthday. 

I really enjoyed this tearing and gluing and spent numerous hours creating flowers. 

I thought the pinks with oranges and golds were my favourite....

But I was wrong.... blue and grays are!  
But for now I am out of creating time.... but hopefully 
I will have time to play with these colours again another day.

I LOVE Notebooks

I have loved notebooks since I was a child. 
I had trouble writing in them sometimes.... as I didn't want to ruin them - but I still bought them and kept them, and I even remember hugging them. 

I still love notebooks, and also love making them, 
and therefore  I can have as many as I want.  

The covers of these new little notebooks, are made with paper I decorated and layered with glue, fabric and dictionary pages to make a sturdy yet somewhat soft covered notebook.  

I had small pieces of the covers left, so I decided to make some tiny notebooks with the leftover supplies......... Now to decide what to write in them!
