I am waiting for my Petite Inspiration Swap Box partners to receive the boxes that I made for them before I post pictures, because I don't want to spoil their surprise. So, In the meantime, please enjoy this musical interlude.
I'm sorry I have not posted in awhile, but I've been busy working on a swap project.
I have been painstakingly cutting, pasting, and embellishing 27 pages for a vintage inspired ABC book.
Each person participating in the swap is responsible for one letter. As you can see, I am the letter "O".
We are each to make 27 pages, which will be sent to our swap hostess Marian. She will then bind them for us into a complete ABC book for each person and send them back. We will also be donating a book to be sold in the Haiti By Hand Etsy shop.
We were asked to include on our pages a flower beginning with our chosen letter, and also a "virtue" beginning with the letter. My flower is oleander. Can you guess what my virtue is?Please submit your guess in the comments. There is no prize other than the satisfaction of guessing correctly.
I will be embellishing deep into the night all weekend to get these pages finished and in the mail.
I can't wait to get back the finished book so I can show you what the other participants have done!
Look at all of these wonderful vintage buttons I just received!
They are all from an Etsy seller in Israel named Orit Dotan.
The seller has hundreds of vintage buttons listed, and her prices are very good.
I love the burgundy ones above with the open area inside - I've never seen any like them.
I also really like the little dark flower ones in the above photo. Actually, I really like them all. I have a project in mind for them, but due to my habit of severe procrastination, I will not describe the project yet. One day I'll just surprise you with pictures.
