Some fun gifts have come my way lately from family and from artsy friends.
One of my sweet sisters-in-law brought me the cute little hat. My friend Chris made the planner, and my sister-in-art Terry sent the beautiful pin cushion doll she made at Kim Caldwell's Roaring Twenties Affaire earlier this year.
Here's a close-up of the little flapper girl. She's a beauty!
Chris took one of Debby Schuh's planner classes recently and immediately went home to make more. Love that about her, especially when I'm the recipient!
Chris used some of her amazing gelli prints in the journal. There's a 2016 calendar and plenty of pages for notes, journaling and sketching.
It's hard to see, but there are clear overlay pages for sticky notes, etc. The edges are bound with my new fav, washi tape.
If you have a chance to take one of Debby Schuh's classes, do! Her kits are packed with supplies as well as detailed instructions. She gives loads of tips on fun and fast ways to create interesting journals.
Terry and I exchange gifts fairly often so I haven't blogged lately about it, but I loved the look of the latest package I sent her. I knew as soon as I saw the sweet Bon Bon Bunny for Lesa Dailey's class at Glitter Retreat earlier this year that I'd be sending my creation to Terry.
The darling bunny with her black and white polka dot dress was perfect for Terry. She loves black and white so I collect little things to send her. The cute notebooks ending up being removed from this shipment as I was afraid they'd smash Bon Bon, but they'll be going in my next package.
Vintage and art gifts - wonderful!
