i am so excited! i won, i won! see here: scrapscene is that fun or what? many thanks to angie from scrapscene for having this contest and to scrapalicious for their donation of the zutter bind it all! yeah!
i have been looking at this machine for a couple of months now, and finally saw one "in person" at one of my lss the day before i visited scrapscene and entered this contest. how exciting it is to WIN and then to win something you really want! but really, more then that, to win this because of one of my books, is really dear. i entered 3 different ones and they chose "lettres d'amour" as the featured album. i originally made this as a 6" X 6" album and auctioned it on ebay, i was then notified by email, by 2 others who both wanted one too, and that is when i decided to offer it as a chunky album kit here on the blog and some of you have ordered it and hopefully, assembled it.
to be able to create these pieces and have others want them, is a really wonderful feeling. whenever i am sitting down and starting a book or album, i have mulled it around in my head for quite sometime, either being inspired by the papers, which is usually the case, or thinking of some spacific event or person. i start a page then everything seems to flow from there, although sometimes not quite all at once, at times it will take days to get to the next page, when it does happen all at once, it is a joy. this particular album did flow all at once, the pages, the images and the feelings were all in-sync. i am grateful when this happens, and it seems that these albums/books turn out to be of special interest to others. interesting.
There were so many great albums entered, i am feeling very special for winning! thank you, thank you!
oh, the things i will make! lol!
oh hum, now what i've been doing, i really have been busy, really! i haven't been ignoring you. i have added a few things to my etsy shop:
a "schooltime" adornment pack, "bitty birds" tokens, something totally new, they are very fun to hang or glue to a page, book or gift package. if you have put together one of my "lettres d'amour" chunky albums(what a co-inky-dink), then you know already how these are put together. jess has been a big help with these putting them on etsy was her idea. maybe some fairy tokens for her secret garden shop? huh jess? wanna open that place, please! anyway, on with the last item, a halloween paper curiosity collection in a great wooden cigar box! it is so fun putting new things in the shop, but i really need to finish my pirate book and that love album! geesh, could i please have a couple of more hours in a day? i still have photos to add to our vacation page! watch out dede!
hey, i am so sorry, dede, that i haven't blogged it sooner! this lady, my friend, awarded this
to me! what an honor and lovely thing to do! thank you! nice is important and does matter! you certainly do deserve this honor, this being soooo late, it doesn't appear that i deserve it! i humbly apologize!
thank you all, for visiting my blog and shop and for all of your support through your purchases, it is a truly wonderful feeling to know that some of you have your very special photos tucked into albums in your homes, that i created here, and you are creating albums of your own with the kits we've put together here at our home. i love the internet and meeting all of you out there. i would love to put an altered book class together and have those of you who are interested come and we could meet "in-person". well, maybe someday, but where?
i'll think on it. good night all, for now. this "celebrity" doesn't have to make dinner tonight! yeah! thanks stefano! what a guy! i should win more often! lol what a great night. -rebecca
