Tiny Book Swap...

I signed up for Julie Collings' "Tiny Book Swap" so got to work on my love themed tiny book last night while the boys were at a Timberwolves basketball game. I finished it this morning and ran to Kinkos to make a bunch of color copies. I have to admit, I was a bit nervous about it all folding up evenly but thankfully the measureing, folding, cutting and aligning worked out beautifully and they look good! I can't wait to see all the other tiny books!
Here are some other little projects I've been working on...
I am somewhat of a soap collector (ok...hoarder), I love all the pretty packaging and never want to throw the boxes or papers away. I decided I'd better start doing something with them though so started with this little soap box. It's sort of like an oversized matchbox, the main compartment slides in and out of a "case." I decorated it with pretty paper and felt flowers and think I might tuck some cute little goodies in there and send it along to Shelby in her February "care package." (she went back to college yesterday after having a month off...I miss her already).



And this is a reproduction of an altered cigar box I made for a swap partner months ago...I decided I wanted one for myself.

Now I have to run off to Archivers to see if I can recover Matt's 17th Birthday photos I stupidly deleted before transferring them to my computer. Sometimes I'm lucky and pictures that have been deleted show up when I load my memory card into Archiver's Sony Picture machine. I've got my fingers crossed!
