Book share…


I am away for the weekend teaching at the Sue Gilman Rep Show.  I only really travel for big trade shows and rep shows.  And I LOVE rep shows.  Just in my room for a little break before a long night of make and takes.

I got several emails asking some of the same thing, so I thought I would share here. :)   One question was where I get the vintage text paper.  Only because I love ya, I am gonna share my wonderful source.  Hee.  I get all my vintage text paper from this wonderful seller on ebay.  She is great.  You can also buy old books at antique stores, but be careful. I once bought a medial dictionary.  And it is really hard to find pages in there that don’t have words on it that you wouldn’t want on a card.  Ha…

The other question was how I did the photo collage on the Sweetie page.  I have to get going, but I promise to answer that here soon. :)

But in the meantime, I thought I would share a project from the recent book, The Recipe Book.  This is one of the last AL books that I contributed to.  (I felt I was running out of juice… and time.  So, just taking a break.)  But anyway, this is a share from the book.  (Which, btw, is a GREAT book.)

Have a good day!  Gotta go meet my buddy, Shari, and others for dinner.
