Dear blog friends and readers...Hello again!
Yes, it has been 5 months since my last post - 5 long months! Have had some lows and some highs during that time, lots of activities and chores. The coming new year will bring new changes, too.
I've missed blogging and blog-hopping! No scrapbook page made all this while, BUT i have been crafting - those have kept me sane :) Most crafts i've done are for my boys' school activities. But now the Christmas holidays have come around, i couldn't stay away from crafting any more.
In September of last year, i made this for my house project:
It is an altered Maya Road Trinket Box, painted white. For the frames with photos in them, I've kept the same pattern throughout - loopy border, patterned papers, stamps, die-cuts - to give some sort of cohesiveness.
For the other frames, i stuck to the same colors as much as possible.
Here are some close-ups:
That's my "big" project for this year. After this, I was still able to make a couple more smaller ones.
How are your holidays? I hope they're going well.
There're some very sad, heart-breaking events in the world right now, and the holidays are the worst time that they could happen. I don't know how the families affected can cope, but my prayers are for and with them.
Thank you for taking your time to visit! I really appreciate it!
