a clean page

This weekend I took a break and quickly put together a new mini.  I was recently asked about my other mini… the daily 2009.  I stopped making pages in June.  It started to feel like more of an obligation rather than a joy.  I was also becoming busier and then when we put our house on the market, I couldn’t keep my crafts out in the open.  (I keep them in rubbermaid bins under the bed.)  I also started feeling weird about posting things that were so personal.  All of that combined… I decided to stop that book where it was.  I can’t say that I’ve done much with paper since.  My summer was so busy and dragging out the boxes wasn’t too appealing.

But alas, on Sunday, creativity came calling and I thought it would be worth the effort.  I think the whole idea of a “mini-book” will work for me if it’s already pre-made, or almost done… just add words, photos and a date stamp.  I am also too much of a type A personality to not love having more of a uniform look.  I like each page being the same size and a similar color scheme or theme.  (I know… all kinds of crazy!)

So I created this one on Sunday as a gift…but it will be hard to part with it.  Here are just a few pages:

  1. Very clever idea to work a “pre-set” sort of thing and then give it as a gift but I surely understand how it would be tough to give away! This is a dandy mini – your sense of “order” certainly translates wonderfully into art!
