For Someone Special

This is a word album I finished for a wonderful friend!  She is so kind and sweet, always so concerned for my health and well being.  Always asks about my family, how my garden is doing and my crocheting, as well as my other many hobbies.

I have a few little details to finish before I send it off to her. 

This is my first word album.  FRIEND.  It took a long while because I wanted to color coordinate it and after this, I will do what so many others I have seen on YouTube do, and that is to purchase a new paper collection so everything matches. 

There are many tags tucked away for her to put in special photos and to journal.  All the pages are different and have lots of goodies packed away. 

I made my own flowers by watching so many talented ladies on YouTube.   They are so good at teaching the rest of us how to make so many wonderful things.

I also crocheted a butterfly and have that flying through the pages as well. 

There is lace and ribbons, beads and do-dads.  I love working with different fibers, so this first album has a little of everything in it.

I can hardly wait to get this in the mail to her.  I'm hoping to have it mailed and in her hands in about 2 weeks.  We never know how fast the Post Man will deliver mail, though, do we?  I have a few other items to pick up and put in the box before it goes on its way.

Thank you for taking a peek, and I'd love feed back - now that I've finally figured out how to post my photos!

Blessings to all,


  1. Oh Gosh, my dear friend! What an amazing album! The most beautiful one I've ever seen! I don't think I can make it myself, you are super talented! It must take a lot of time, you must work so hard, and must put lots of love in this album! Your friend must be thrilled for sure!! How lucky she is to have such a wonderful friend!

    I'm so touch reading this post, Donna. Ah yes, you've figured out how to post photos, and you did it awesomely!

  3. Haha! That's funny that the first comment is from the lucky friend. Oh what a surprise she got!! That is beautiful and I know it must have felt so great getting all the feedback especially from her.

  4. Thank you so much for commenting ~ Trang is a beautiful friend from across the Pacific Ocean. It was very hard to keep this secret from her. She had no idea at all this was for her before it was on its way, flying from my home to hers.

    Your blogs are beautiful!

    Blessings, Donna
