"Blessings Book"




I simply adore this little book. This is my "Blessings Book". I created it for myself to write about some of the many blessings in my life.

Serendipities.

Miracles.

God-Winks.

Things which I always want to remember, and never take for granted....They are in here. It has become one of my dearest "companions".... It brings a smile to my face whether I am adding to it, or I am reading through it. It is a true treasure to me, I keep it near where I can see it each day.... and when my time is done here, I shall pass it on to loved ones....

I hope they too will consider it a treasure.




To create my little book, I simply took an old little notebook I had for years, I think I had only written in it once..... The outside cover was a bit faded, and so I did a little "altered art" on it....... I glued on some pieces of torn scrapbook paper, a little vintage picture I printed out, a few bits of lace, and some little scrapbook "gems".

I also added a sweet quote sticker to the back... glued on some beads, and added a few sparkly-sprinkles........




On the front I also added the sweet little "Blessed" word...... because it reminds me that I am indeed blessed, every day of my life..... and I tied on a couple of pretty beads with some oh-so-sweet sheer ribbon I had to the wire binding......



Anyway.... I just wanted to share my little book with you.......

I hope it will inspire you to create a treasure of your own....


I can see I will be making more of these........ for affirmations.......gratitude journals.... etc........... I once swore I would "never" get into scrapbooking because it just didn't look like fun....... but, boy am I having fun now!

"Never say Never"

When I stand with God at the end of my life
I would hope that I would have not a single bit of talent left and I could say,
" I used everything you gave me."

Well.....................








My dear friends........... for not forgetting about me!



I have been very busy with a secret-for-now project for a very special lady.......


and then, while working on her surprise..........



well, more and more other projects came about which also needed my attention..........


and so, time just slipped away from me.............





oh my................


But, I am back............ the special projects are nearly finished...........



And, there is a NEW special project which will require much time and effort, for quite some time...........


I'll fill you all in on it very soon............. honest..............


But, I will surely try to do better about keeping things updated here, and not be gone so long....... because I do so miss you all when I am not here!











I would also like to send another special lady an award~ She is very sweet to "worry" about me, and she has such a delightful blog............ and so I give this "friendship award" to Jerri at Pink Passion........... thank you for thinking of me, Jerri!
