~* aLtErEd LOVE bOoK*~


In sheer frustration, I had my husband go to the storage unit to bring
me a box of my scrapbooking supplies because I am seriously going nuts not being able to create anything while our home is on the market. (Did I mention the staging lady told me that it looked like someone "threw up" in my studio!!!) HMPH! Needless to say, I had to remove almost everything in there. 15 boxes!
It's been two long months and I need to get my stuff back! So in the one box he grabbed, I had this Heidi Swapp book binder designed by the talented

Janet Hopkins of House of Three. These books are awesome. I only did the cover so far and I used sparKly glitter Mod Podge, which I admit to never using before! I started layering and topped it off with this beautiful cherub embellishment from BlueMoon Scrapbooking. And some dangling bling from Teresa Collins!
The inside of this album allows for so many possibilities, I can't wait to get started on that. But I'm out of the house now for a showing,
so cross your fingers everyone! I can't take much more of this house cleaning!

Obviously the staging lady is not an artist/crafter. But HOPEFULLY she's better at getting a buyer for your house!

My fingers are crossed . . . double crossed *smiles*

Ohhhhh what a nice person that staging lady sounds like......Nothing motivates me like great manners. Love that project, glad to heat you've gotten to scrap...don't know I'd have lasted as long as you!!

Sue a/k/a MOUSEMOM40 said...

Wow! This is gorgeous! And the nerve of that staging lady! Does she not know that crafters love piles of scraps and bins overflowing with cool stuff? I think maybe she needs to stand in the corner for awhile until she thinks about what she said! LOL. Hang in there, Girl! I'm praying that house will sell soon!

Karen said...

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm SOOO glad that you get to play a bit! And with one box you've managed to pull together a happy, glittery, heart filled piece of goodness!! I'm tapping my toes in a happy dance for you! Now, I'm sure we'll all do a full on Happy Dance for you when your house sells and you can start fresh. :>:> (((HUGS)))

I love those books. I was lucky enough to take Janet's class at Creative Escape when she first introduce those books, fabulous! Don't wait until next year, Deb~you've gotta have a pink boa and those giant pink feathers would look chic on your chandelier with some dangling hearts!
Who know's it might bring you a little luck! ;o)
Wishing you and yours a very Happy New Year!
Hugz, Z
