Falling numbers Birthday Day Card

This card was made by a personal request. It needed to hold tickets from several events so I made a tri fold card which folded out with pockets on both sides.  I saw the number idea from pinterest but added my twist to it by adding the letters love since it was made for a sweetheart's birthday.

Book Desk Organizer

I saw this idea on pinterest and fell in love with it.  So on my retreat, I decided to recreate it.  It is a desk organizer.  I love how it turned out.  I had to make a sample and make some adaptations to it to make the books "square".  

Flat Stanley's Mini Album

 My nephew's first grader read the book "Flat Stanley"  in her first grade classroom.  Then Stanley takes an adventure.  When you receive him you are to take him on an adventure.  I love this book.  I made him a winter hat and scarf and a backpack along with his own personalized photo album/scrapbook.

    7 Day Retreat packing

    Here is my car packed to the rim for my seven day retreat.  My passenger had to hold my bedding along with things at her feet.  I couldn't open the hatch until I got some things out or everything would have rolled out.  It was the best retreat I've been on!!  Can't wait to do it again!!
