And the Winner Is.....

I just did the drawing for the two freebie gifties that I am giving away, and KAREN has won BOTH items! She will be receiving both the QuicKutz Die and the Bali Bags pattern! Karen, I have sent you an email asking for your mailing address, so if you don't get my email, but read this blog posting, please send your mailing address to LThykeson@yahoo.com!!

In other news, I have been working lately on my "Teeny Tiny Books" and have gotten several of them finished! I love making these tiny books that range anywhere in size from 1" x 1" up to roughly 3" x 2"! They each have several pages, and it is such fun working on each page, although it is painstaking detail work...I make both little tiny accordian books, as well as regular books with several pages, and by the time they are finished, they are usually pretty chunky and have to be held closed with rubber bands!
Above is a small sample of the ones I have made in the past. They are great for trading and swaps, and also as little gifties for friends! You ought to give them a try sometimes-lots of fun here!!

I also have made a small 9" x 5" book from cardstock, lace, odds and ends of small objects and some collage pictures from AlteredPages.com...Below is the cover and a couple of pages of the book...I wrote a Victorian love story and illustrated it with the collage pictures and the other things I listed above...


I haven't finished it yet, I have about three more pages to go, but you get the idea...Why don't you try your hand at making your own little story book?!

Happy creating,

Laura
