A paper tree for your Tuesday...

I love trees.

This is an album I spruced up awhile back.  

Not sure what it was originally supposed to house, 
but it has become the home of some very special little 'tid-bits'.


In downsizing/moving my craft stash to make room for the Little One on the way, I went through all my fabric.  I picked out the scraps (sometimes big) that had a special meaning/memory for me.  It seems like I've been hoarding some of these because I can't bear to let them go!

So, I decided to cut little swatches of them and store them in a memory book.  It's amazing to me that I can look at a scrap of polka dot material and remember exactly when and where I bought it, what I made with it and who I shared it with!

I have bits of my mom's old nightgowns that I used make doll blankets and some pieces I remember using with my Grandma to make dolls and embellish clothes for me.

Now, I feel liberated to use the rest of these fabrics for projects because I know I still have a piece of them safe with me.  Hopefully these fabric pieces will pass on all the love and care and years that are stored up in them.

Blessings to you!
