A Little Something from My Crafty Past

Hey Everyone.

Elizabeth here this week. Sharing a bit of my crafty life with you … well … more like my past crafty life.  But hey, everything old becomes new again, right? I’ve been so busy the last few weeks getting the child ready to leave for college that I haven’t had any chance to be personally crafty.  So you dear reader get to see something “vintage”.  LOL.

This mini-album is a little something I designed few years ago for a class I taught at a LSS.  When I got finished with it I was I.N. L.O.V.E. Totally and completely.  I even didn’t mind the less than perfect handwriting. Shocker!  There really isn’t any concrete theme to the album … just “Odds & Ends. Bits & Pieces.” like the cover says.  Hopefully some of the pages and/or handmade embellishments will inspire you to create a mini-album of your own full of randomness.

Album Cover
I used layered circle flowers, sparkly tulle, silver brads, lace and ribbon throughout the album for continuity.  I like setting the stage for their use on the cover … gives the reader a taste of what’s to come.

Our Story Began …
These two pages tell of how my husband and I met.

Our Home Is …
This is where we live.

Happy Is …
A short list of what makes our family happy.


Our Family Is …
Here I included a short description of our family.

It’s All Good …
One word: football.

Together Is …
“… much sweeter because of the time we’ve had to spend apart.”


A Few Simple Facts …
Just more superfluous info about our family.


One Favorite Place …
One word: Germany.  

Dear Friends …
We aren’t fortunate to have family near us so we have made our dear friends part of our family.  


Untitled Page and Inside Back Cover …
A spot for two more random pix and the date the album was made.  A must for me.  I think every album should include the completion date.

Well, there it is. Random mini-album by Elizabeth.  I hope you enjoyed the look into the odds & ends of my life. Speaking of which, I’m going to get back too.  My family and I are currently enjoying some vacation time about a quarter of a mile west of Sundance.  A cabin in the woods with internet and satellite TV. This is my kind of camping!



  1. Awesome, I love this.
    Thanks for the inspiration.
    Blessing, Linda
