sunday morning was dusted in the closest thing to snow at my house...a blanket of sparkly frost

a birthday pocket journal memory, collecting sort of book
using photographs, paper and the good old sewing machine I created little pockets for each month
the idea is to tuck mementos into the pockets and add photographs along the way...
hoping by my friend's next birthday it will be a gift to look back on the previous year

ahh, my green tea, I don't know why it took me so long to go get more at the store

{2.25 to 2.27}

Oh I really like your memento idea, this is so creative and pretty. I've been thinking myself of a way to collect memories in a graphic and creative way, I have tons of little things to put in an album (pics, tickets, programs), and your idea is brilliant.
Thank you very much.
I really enjoy reading your blog, your pictures are pure delight.

Aesthetically I resisted the 'follow' button but have been rethinking that lately.

Just added it, thanks for the push. :)

I'll be working on some memento books like this for the shop and would love to take a couple sample custom orders to use for listing photos.

If you're interested in ordering a custom one at a sample sale price contact me at stacey@staceywinters.com.

Thank you!
