I made this handmade wedding guest book from a vintage book cover, my own handmade book cloth, custom designed inside pages, and a fabulous stitched cover design made from various vintage papers, patterned papers, and fabrics.

I wish I had a book like this for my wedding!

Thanks bridetobe12 for the inspiration!

Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day everyone!!!!

Today I answered the question: What do I love about being a mother?

I love being a mother because I have a little monkey to share joy with every day. I get to say and do things I never thought I'd ever do or say. Like, for example, saying "good girl!" when she lifts her leg and rips a fart. Or "don't put the dog's tail in your mouth". Or "don't bite my boob!" I get to smile and laugh a million times a day. I get to teach her and she get's to teach me. These are just a few of the millions and billions of things that I love about being a mother.

What do you love about being a mother?

Have a great day!!!
