Then I was really pleased to get a wonderful journal as a gift from Judy Shea who is a wonderful multimedia artist at http://thekeytomyart.wordpress.com. My name was a random pick from her comment list. Here is the gorgeous journal. I love the gilded edges and all the beads and colors. Oh, and Judy also makes her own button shapes and other pieces to add to your journal pages and covers. She sent those along as an extra special surprise.
Thank you so much, Judy! I am a happy camper!
Next, a big "Thank You" to my daughter for the time she spent before Easter to buy these kits from Ebay and for putting them all together for my Easter hostess/Moms gift. They are so beautiful! When my children were young, we would go to a craft store in East Dundee, Illinois called Lee Ward's to buy these kits to make holiday ornaments together. So these hold great memories, too. I still have them on my mantel. Thank you, Lucy! :>)
I am posting this to Paint Party Friday, as I have missed a whole month or more!
