{polaroid journal}

I finally finished a small polaroid scrapbook that I have been planning to do for awhile.

It’s all about Autumn.. special memories.. her favorite toys, dresses, color, activities..

alot of journaling about the many ways she made us laugh &  smile at the age of 2-4.

It’s about to be wrapped and placed under the tree for Christmas. I hope she will someday treasure it as much as I do!

My sister’s and I  had a fab weekend to ourselves… sewing, knitting, felting, watching good movies, and eating too much food.. :D

I’m still smiling and I have many new projects to share!


Also, a huge THANK YOU to all who participated in last week’s giveaway!

I enjoyed reading each and every one of your comments!  Many of them brought tears to my eyes.

You are so thoughtful and  such a blessing to me!  The drawing was a reminder of why I share here. :)

We drew a name this morning… and the winner is ROSIE! A fellow photographer- who’s work and friendship I truly enjoy.

Rosie’s memory   “ fav christmas gift ever was probably my first one that I can remember. A little stuffed animal. i was 8. Coming from a family of 12, we rarely did gifts :). “


This week my project is a handmade envelope with a set of 4 cards from my etsy shop Skippy Designs.

We had a  relaxing weekend eating sugar cookies and playing games.

I am working on a wreath for my mantle and a wool project. First time felting.. I’m a little nervous. :)

I plan on eating way too much turkey myself and finishing it off with a huge slice of apple pie.   :D

This has been a good year.. beautiful & rewarding in many ways. My heart is so Thankful.
