while she was busy, i was working on a few other things and decided to take a few little shots of some sketches of mine in one of my journals. one in particular is the moon's garden and it's quite special because on the opposite side, she attempted to copy my drawing and made it the sun's garden. :)
also, i finished up a letter booklet i made for one of my letter friends in north carolina (a grown up way of saying pen pals i suppose!). it went off in the mail today so i hope she will have it by the end of the week . here, a couple of pages of it as a sneak peek...
i also did a craft of my own yesterday afternoon as well. another inspiration was found in the cookie magazine where a woman made these book mobiles for her children's room. i loved the way they look at that they also looked a bit like bird houses. i happened to have an old book where i was using the pages to draw on. i decided to take the idea and try it out myself. i had no idea that the website actually had the instructions on how to make it. i just looked at the photo, removed the pages, used tape to keep the sections of pages together and to apply them into the book and afterwards used glue for further securing. i also used a permenant marker to draw windows on both sides of the cover. if i had some other materials, i probably would of affixed some fake moss and a bird to the tops as well.
these were the best photos i could take but at least you get the idea :) i would like to do more, and get a bit better but what a great recycling craft idea (especially with earth day being tomorrow).
of course, nat's headdress was all dried today so she happily modeled it (with a smiling papa in the background as well). i loved the way it looked and i think she does too!
i also wanted to mention, if you can, please vote for the most talented margaux kent of theblackspotbooks is in an etsy voter for 'which jewelry would make mom feel special?". please go and vote for her and spread the word too :)
