inspiration for mothers day

I have just edited this post with a completed book I gave to mum last week on mothers day...I felt quite emotional this mothers day creating this mum is so special and life has not been an easy ride for her and I'm so grateful for all she has given me...... I have such fond memories of my nana and grandmother also they are very vividly in my mind as kind, funny, resiliant individuals.

Keepsake thoughts and feelings reflect and share with mum using these lovely 6x6 albums

Here are two of these gorgeous little keepsakes they convey simular sentiments but have different designed pages to compliment the quotes on the pages. I'm a mum and a daughter and loved creating these books and asorbing meanings of these pages. These albums were inspired by a request from my friend Julia to create one for her freind Nikki.. thankyou both yours was the first....they are all different and so OOAK.

A Happy New Year

What a lovely christmas time it has been.... quite a relaxing time and I've been able to take stock and get some creative ideas together for for 2008!I am excited about sharing them as the months progress. It has also been a time for reflecting on the lovely relationships I have with my friends and family..I feel so very lucky and thankful to them all.. to my mum and sister my lovely pal Linda and her family, my running buddy and 'sounding board' Kirsty and of course Chel, my rock! and sooo many more lovely people.
Here is a little book created as a gift for my son's childhood friend.. they have known each other since pre school and it was a joy putting together sassy little shots of them in this album..Cheeky moments in the school nativity play... a nursery photo around the sand pit and evidence they were the masters of funny face pulling on trips out especially whenever I insisted on taking a photo ! and now into their adolescent years I see two lovely young men at the beginning of the next stage of their journey... I just love standing still long enough to register all the changes that pass and the way individuals adapt grow and evolve through is pretty amazing whilst at the same time being so simple... after all it simply happens! well any parent might argue it isn't quite as simple as that...! I plan to carry on standing still long enough to appreciate all the love that has gone into supporting that change in others and myself throughout 2008!

Keepsaking gifts ...what a joy to create

Putting those litttle books to creative use!
