Beach Collage #2

 
 
This is the 2nd gift I gave my family this year.  We had the pictures taken our family vacation a couple of years ago but they seemed to disappear so I decided to make a collage of them. I'm a fan of black and white picutres and I liked how it turned out. If you want to see my other beach collage click here.

Family Christmas Present - 2012

 
 
This year I decided to do a book again using the very affordable thebookpatch.com.  This is the front and back covers together (left is the back, right is the front). I wrote a short story that would only be funny to my family describing a typical day in a family with the same names as us but not like us at all (i.e. exactly opposite). I also made them one more thing, post coming soon.

The Fruit Book







This is the book I made my neice for Christmas this year. She loves fruit just like her Daddy (my little brother) so I thought it'd be fun to make a book about it.  If you'd like to buy this book you can for $5 at http://www.thebookpatch.com/BookStore/the-fruit-book/0f23a4d2-1402-434d-9acf-fb2ca26e7b4e

5 things to do with $5

So we had spent all of our alloted Christmas money for my big brother except for $5 and we decided just to give it him in cash. To make it more fun/funny I was going to wrap it up with these silly suggestions. But we ended up doing something else for him so I didn't get to use it. I think he was happier with what we got him then he would have been with this :)

Ryleigh's Flash Cards

 
 
I made these flash cards for my niece for Christmas this year (as well as a book, post coming soon). Click on the picture to see all of them.

My parents (her grandparents) helped a lot with the concept, helping me come up with words, giving me feedback on my design ideas and the idea to make more in the future in installments so that within a few years she has a few sets. We all had so much fun with this and I hope she will too.

Christmas is Almost Here!

I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas this year and enjoys times with friends and family!
 
I got this cute (I think) white pom-pom wreath at Target this year and I love it. I think it goes well with my tree. Oh and those sliver things are jingle bells if you can't tell.

My Little Brother the Connoisseur

 
This is the card I made for my little brother this year.  When I started thinking about him (which is how I always come up with my cards) I thought about how he likes good coffee, good wine, and on and on.
