Love letters from Our Children

I recently sorted all the ephemera from the past few years which I keep in the filing cabinet sorted by person.

One of the highest volume items was letters from Merenia. Little notes such as: To Dad, I love you from Merenia. and To Mum, You are nice and sometimes you are mene. From Merenia.

I sorted the notes roughly by age and stitched each set together on the sewing machine.

I made seven envelope which have string closures. Six of the envelopes hold Merenia letters and 1 for Kierans. It will be easy to add more envelopes for Merenia's continued writing and also Will's missives one day.

All papers; Basic Grey

Our Family Christmas Mini Album

This is a paper bag album of all our family Christmas Traditions that I put together on Saturday. I started it 3-4 years ago and so am really rapt to finally have it finished! It is constructed from 3 paper bags folded in half as well as the pages 10 pages there are also pull outs in the bag openings. Which include 6x4's stuck back to back and also free floating pages where I needed to journal more. The little tags in the packets have notes on all our traditions. The cardstock is Bazzill and the ribbon is mostly Pebbles Inc and then there's a lot of other bits and pieces.

The Difference One Year makes Album

This is a little mini album of Will's 9:38am photos that I put together on Friday. There's not much more than words plus photos, but then that is the way that I like it! The album is Bella chipboard and the paint is mostly MM Fresh anthology. The embellishments are a big mixture of bits that needed using up!

What I did with my Christmas Cards

Yesterday I finished a couple of LO's I have been meaning to do for a while....

I sifted through this and last years Christmas Cards and used a 2in Square punch to punch 25 squares. Which I ten matted and mounted on a 12x12 piece of Bazzil. I stitched the bottom and sides to make a pocket in which I stashed some of the more precious cards and also the photos and Christmas letter we received from family and friends. ...

Cool huh?

Last of the Daily December Album Pages...

So these are the last few pages from my Daily December album (and no 14 again because I changed it a little). I must say it's a pretty satisfying feeling looking at this completed project on the mantle!! And I am also enjoying watching the pages build every 3-4 days for my digital 365 album. But I am hankering to get down to my table and feel up some paper and scissors!
