Hi Friends, I had so much fun this year hosting the Secret Santa Swap and chose our sweet friend Laura as my pal. She had had a challenging year in so many ways this year that I really felt like some spoiling was in order. I created a Jane Austin Gatefold Mini Album for her out of some of her favorite papers as my handmade this year. Complete photo's are on my blog. I got her a few of her favorite paper collections, along with flowers and embellishments; a stamp shammy, flourish stencil and lacy die set. I also wanted to introduce her to mold making, so I included a keyhole mold, some paper clay and made a canvas from one of my favorite Royalty molds. I wasn't sure if she had all the mixed media to go with it, so I did include a tin of gesso, matte gel, modeling paste and some of her favorite color blue paint. I also included a stocking full of treats for everyone in the house, including the pets! lol Last but not least, I dug deep in the attic for my childhood sewing lace and Laura loves antique laces. I learned to sew when I was very young, about 8 or 9 on the machine, and had a nice box of vintage lace to send along to complete my gifts. Laura you are such a cherished friend to me, I wish you and your beautiful family a very Merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year! Thanks for dropping by and having a peek! Hugs ~ Dawna
