What happens after all the mess?

So you saw the picture of chaos scattered about my kitchen table... you didn't even see my actual work room. Oh my.

So what happens after all the chaos is turned into a book?  Well, here is an example of the Christmas books I've made in the past!

This book was purchased by a mommy for her daughter's first Christmas. I can just imagine pictures of baby and Santa for that first visit... this precious baby girl sitting in a pile discarded wrapping paper on Christmas morning... or maybe diving into a box because that's what they would prefer, right? 

Anyway, this is what is produced.  And you have to complete it with memories turned into pictures!

Work in Progress!

I'm so excited to have a large Christmas order... glitter, stickers and paper have exploded all over my house! It's wonderful! (My very most favorite holiday).

This is what a work in progress looks like. Paper, stickers, buttons, strips, and more pushed together into piles and usually I know where everything is that I'm looking for... usually.

In my spare time, I like taking the paper scraps and making cards to send to our troops and veterans, thanking them for their service.  I know I'm a random stranger, but I feel compelled to share with them my appreciation for their service.  There are several places online to find addresses to send letters and/or packages to, if you are interested.  Just google them!
