Busy Creating!!



The past few weeks I have been busy creating guest books! This one is for Michele from Calicodaisy. She has an Open House coming up this week in Lexington, SC and I am sure
she would love for you to come and see all the beautiful items she makes. Michele was wonderful to work with on this custom order! She knew exactly what she wanted & I had lots of
fun creating this book for her! Right now her book is on it's way & I hope she loves it! It see more of what Michele creates check out http://www.calicodaisy.etsy.com/




After creating Michele's book, I knew I wanted something special to lay on the table at
the craft fairs for my visitors to sign. I ran across some cute ladybug paper while at the
paper store the other day & knew exactly what to do with it! I love it when inspiration
hits, it seems to make the project go so fast & everything falls into place! On the inside
cover I wanted a spot to put business cards, so I sewed a little pocket with paper. I just love pockets!! A ladybug paper cutout adorns the pocket.


On the front I used my logo printed on a matching yellow card stock and accented
the side with a silver buckle on black velvet ribbon. I am a fan of charms and tucked
a little heart that reads, 'made with love' on the buckle. The edges of my book are
painted red and I stippled them just a bit with black ink! I can't wait to use my new book!
If you are in the Burnsville, NC area August 1-2, I would love for you to stop by & sign my
new book!

I sure wish I could go to Michele's party! I can just tell that she is going to make it an incredibly fun time and that she is the nicest hostess! The book you made for her is just so pretty! I sure am happy to find your site and see all the wonderful things you make! Having an adorable book for customers to sign is such a great idea!

That's MY guest book, and I love it. Mary dealt with my need for control and let me send her my favorite papers, but I needn't have worried, she has great ideas and wowed me with her ideas.

Hi, I just hopped over from Calicodaisy... your books are so cute! And you did a great job on Michele's book! It really looks like what she would have made herself!
Way to go!
