1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Baby Book -- with an edge on: February 05, 2006 07:11:55 AM

Hey craftsters...I'm in the need for some creative mojo.

My brother and sister-in-law are having their first baby towards the beginning of April. We know that they'll be having a girl, and the her name will be Savannah Alexandra. I've been asked to make a "baby book" to present to them at her baby shower the first weekend in March. I live out of state, so have to have it mailed by the last week in February.

Now, Rachelle (my S-I-L) is a "hip mamma" type. She has a witty, if dry sense of humor, and while she loves being at home and in charge of the domestic sphere, her style has a delicious tongue in cheek "edge" to it -- like Mrs. Cleaver meets Melissa Etheridge! Wink Anyway, I think her baby book should be the same, and I'm looking for some inspiration.

I've started trolling for fun quotes and page headings, but haven't come up with a suitable format. I thought about altering a baby's board book, but am not sure that's the look I want either. I usually make my own journals, know about all the acid-free rules, and know that I want to include stamp carvings and faux postage. Other than that, I don't have a clue. What would you do to create a baby book that will turn heads?

Thanks for your help!

Blue skies,

2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Some of my work... on: January 20, 2006 09:57:04 PM

Just a couple of pics showing off some of my recent work. Enjoy, and feel free to comment as you like....

Oh -- don't laugh at my "varied" backgrounds and Photoshop playing.  Embarrassed These were taken before my proper
displays came, and I was also experimenting with a new camera. Everything else is fair game for feedback.

1) "Sugarplum" Jangle Dangle watch

2) "Fire Signs" Lampwork and Dichroic glass bead necklace

3) "Fringe Benefits" tiered necklace

4) "Southwest Palette" long beaded and turquoise necklace

Thanks for looking!
