Beyond The Garden Gate

Thank you to everyone who has cheered me on during the creation process, the birds who dropped feathers, friends with postage stamps, Ewan Gardam for all ways luring me with more ribbon and buttons, Kaizer Crafts for the little tabbed album (joy to work with), Papier Valise for the little garden gate that started it all and most of all Lady Edith Holden and her Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady from where all the wonderful illustrations came.

You wanna read something freaky...?! I was just thinking about such a little garden gate, and how I could maybe make one myself just like we did in High School...And then create an album or LO with that...

It's gorgeous! It's beautiful and magical, and your banner is adorable as well! It's so right, so old fashioned, it's very appealing!!!

Keep it up, your beautiful art!!!

Someone who's got the same lovely name...Mandy

Hello from New England! You've done a fantastic job with this book! And I like the title, too - it would have been the perfect name for my blog (if I ever decide to change it, I'll give you credit for the inspiration!).

What a beautiful album you've created! Creativity is such a wonderful gift to have. I have just started making some holiday cards and I have lots to learn, but I'm determined to craft some pretty cards. I think with each one I make, they seem to look better.

Thanks so much for visiting my Christmas blog and leaving a comment for me. I really appreciate all comments! You have a very nice blog and I'll be looking over it again.
