Butterflies and Daisy

Alisa Noble donated this handmade journal to the Hope For Oklahoma Art Auction in June.
Being the selfish hoarder of my friend's work, I had to have it.
She added many things to my package.
Lovely unexpected hand carved wood stamps, and pencils.
Butterflies always appear in Alisa's work. These are completely hand stitched.
Coral hearts from a trip to her father's lovely beach...
 A thousand thank yous Alisa.
And then this...
Daisy Noble
left Alisa and Brian last week.
Goodbye sweet girl...
Goodbye sweet Daisy.

Full Tilt

Once I found Mary Ann Moss and her Remains of the Day Journal tutorial, I found IT. Everything I had been saving and learning came together in a sewn handmade book.
I signed up for her next online journal class, Full Tilt Boogie in November 2011.
I don't think of myself as an optimist or even a hopeful person, but I somehow believe in this future Utopia of feeling centered and having loads of time on my hands.
Since that hasn't happened I embarked In May of 2011, only a year and a half after my initial purchase, to watch the videos and make a journal.
Using the 30 minute chunks of time I pieced this together over several weeks.
And I am in love.
I utilized an old celluloid album I bought in November 2012 at the Rose Bowl Flea.
I employed the sewing collage page technique from Remains of the Day.
I made my pages the same size, mostly.
And it is fabulous.
I made it!
I love it!
Remember that childlike enthusiasm for things you made? I have that now!
And I will not apologize for tons of photos of my baby!

The back...

I want to remind you about the Hope For Oklahoma online auction which ends 14 June 2012. My dolls are currently at $10 each with free shipping. You an get a deal here and help Oklahoma following the May tornado devastation.
