"Life's Journey... Just one moment at a time" Journal and Bookmark

Well, I'm finally crafting again! I've been sooooo busy in the last few months... but things are finally slowing down a bit! Here's a journal & bookmark that I've been working on. The words mean a lot to me because I get over whelmed very easily!! I have a LOT going on in my life and my brain goes sooooo much faster than my body can keep up!! I'm trying desperately to S L O W down and just focus on the moment!!

I used a LOT of Webster's Pages on this one...

I bought a cheap notebook from Walmart and covered it using Mod Podge.
I used Webster's Pages "Pure Grace" and "Light the Way" papers.
I trimmed the edges with the "Floral Vine" Deep Edge Punch from Martha Stewart.
 The flowers and leaves are handmade also using those WP papers.
The Alphas are WP "Postcards from Paris".
The pretty green "button" is a "Scalloped Sparkler" from WP.
The pink ribbon is WP's "Pink Velvet" and I just hung a silver cross from the bow.
I crocheted the white thread and left space for the green "Silk Ribbon" and "Pink Velvet".
The frame & birds are from "Dusty Attic"...
I just painted them white and put a little pink on the edge of the birds wings.
Oh... and the fluffy white feathers were a gift from my cockatoo... Titus Too!!

I sell almost everything you see in my store. So, it was awesome to finally use some of it!!
The Silk Ribbon was just added a couple of days ago and I only charge .18 a foot. The color I used is Seafoam Green #618... and it matches perfectly!!

I hope you're all having an awesome week!!

Thank you sooooo much for visiting...

God bless & big hugs,
