Keeping Busy With More Artful Kits....

The tragic events of yesterday have my heart feeling ever so heavy today. I know that I am not alone in this sentiment. Whether you live in the Boston area like myself, or miles, states or even countries away....we are all together in feeling the "aftershocks" of such a senseless act of violence. In moments like these I pray...I hope.... and, truthfully, I feel helpless. Nothing soothes the heaviness we all feel but being creative takes my mind off of such sadness, if only for a moment. So I got busy photographing my new artful kits and assembled a few more (that, after walking the pond, cleaning out the garage, packing and carrying my winter clothes into the attic, and putting 4 barrels of recycle "curbside").

So here are my newest Bookcovers Bits & Bobs....

"Love Lyrics"

"Lady of the Lake"

"Elsie Dinsmore"

"La Princesse De Cleves"

"Mother Mary Pray For Us"

"In His Steps"


"House of Dreams"

I also found a box of old photograph album frames and decided to use them as "starter board" artful kits....

Here are a few that I've assembled...

"Petites Soeurs"


"Rose Bud"

"The Child's Dream"

"Ma Mere"

For this photograph album frame, I made a "Vintage Lace Sampler" starter kit....


And my flea market "Rose Change Purse" was the inspiration for a sweet, petite artful kit in pink...


"Merci" for stopping in...for listening... and for keeping Boston in your prayers!

(These Kits range in price from 12.50 - 20.00 depending on what's included. If you are interested in any of them, please let me know and I would be happy to put them on reserve for you and send an invoice via PayPal. I am also happy to ship these internationally).
