Featured In Somerset Memories

April 2011

I am SO excited!!! I just received the latest issue of Somerset Memories in the mail...and I'm proud to say, one of my projects,  
"Three You-Nique Boys - A Keepsake Window"
is Featured on Pages 50-53.

It hits newsstands on April 1, but if you can't find it locally, click on the magazine cover above to order yourself a copy! If you are a paper artist, scrapbooker or a journaler, you won't be disappointed. (I am NOT paid to say that!)

Here are a few photos of my vintage window...complete with close-ups,
just so you can see the very cool CHIPPY - RUSTY detail that came with the cast-off window that I saved from the landfill! Yay!!!

My three boys were definitely the inspiration for this piece. It marries my love obsession with vintage windows, collected findings and cast-offs, and my very favorite photos of them. 

I enjoy being able to reflect back on the memories we've shared, as they have certainly grown-up faster than I ever imagined. 

And I get to enjoy it almost.every.single.day, as this new family "heirloom" hangs prominently in my office at work...but I'm not in my office every.single.day!

It does my heart good and makes me smile when I'm there....



Note: I've linked up LATE to for obvious reasons...I didn't want to post photos until the magazine was out!

ETA: Just linked up to Gail's Catch-As-Catch-Can party over at My Repurposed Life. Go take a look at all the links....

I absolutely love this idea!
I love my four kiddos so much-- and now that they are grown --well, this is a project I could do and enjoy!

Glad I found you at Gails CCCC party!

Hey there! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin
that might be able to fix this problem. If you have
any recommendations, please share. Appreciate it!
