I’ve been making my Christmas Cards-kind of!


For my close family, instead of Christmas Cards, I decided to make Meander Books (you can find a video with directions from SplitCoastStampers at YouTube).  
Each page of the meander book has a pocket, so I stuffed them!
On the inside I pasted a refrain of the lyrics from Bette Midler’s The Rose:
Just remember in the winter

Far beneath the bitter snow
Lies the seed that with the sun’s love,
In the spring, becomes the rose.”


In the pockets, I stuffed a packet of Everlasting flower seeds, and tags with a wish that the New Year would be as full of potential and beauty as the seeds.  I added one photo to each book that was relevant to the receiver but left the rest of the pages blank for them to add their own photos.

A little more involved that cards, but fun, and I think the recipients will appreciate them!

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.
