I have the feeling I am always writing the same.....forgive me.
And this....... oh my.....beautiful! Love your little book. And your card for Emma's Paperie; it took my breath away.I love the result with Glimmer Mist and all the gorgeous details on this card...
And; your not only polite but also heartfelt, warm and sweet.
Have a wonderful weekend!


Ahhh, glassine bags! Thanks so much! Ordered some tonight and I <3 Mish's blog! What a very talented lady!


Melissa I love those Birthday Books, have you thought about doing a PDF tutorial on them for purchase in your etsy shop? I am sure there would be many people like me happy to pay for a tutorial on how to make them.

I ordered the glassine bags from Papertrey Ink yesterday, Melissa. I want to make some of your paper bag pockets for the ladies in my Bible study class at church. We start our new fall quarter in a few weeks, and I thought those would make a sweet little gift for the ladies. I also ordered the Crate Paper Restoration line, so I just can't wait to get my supplies and get started. I love to make things to give away! It makes me happy to encourage other people with my little cards and crafts. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful creations with us Melissa. I can't come up with these ideas on my own, but I do copy them-not to sell or submit, but to simply share with others from my heart to theirs. I LOVE your blog and appreciate you so much! Thanks! :)


As always...BEAUTIFUL!!!!


Your creations are always so lovely! I have enjoyed looking at every one!


Oh my! I simply love the idea of glimmer mist on resins..
Why didn't I think of that?!
LOVE every project in this post!
Totally awesome eye candies!

Your birthday books are so fabulous and amazingly detailed. I love to look at the pictures of them and can't imagine how long I'd be looking at the real thing. Gorgeous!


Your birthday book is so lovely! Especially enjoy the winter scene!

I actually painted a resin garland just the other day with glimmer mist. At first I thought it wouldn't work as the color didn't
'stick' but when it dried I loved it!


This post speaks to my mind and my stomach. Goodness all around wherever you are found! Going to google a recipe for Chocolate Zucchini Cake right now.


Melis - your creations are exquisitely charming! It's always such a delight to visit you here.

Lisa Dolson

Ohhh....such lovely little things you have shared these last couple of posts. Do I detect some BG Curio sweetness on the birthday books? Everything is just exquisite, Melissa!


Just finished off the last of CZC
while lurking around here... great way to start the evening. Thank you.


Loving your eye-candy, as always...

While I'm off checking out your links to the glassine bags, would you consider doing a tutorial on how to make your multi-loop bows? (Such as on your April page here.)

Beautiful work - thanks for sharing!


I just love your book, it is so lovely.

Thinking of you... Hope you are OK (and your family)

Sorry to hear about your misfortunes and hope things go well for you and yours. I love your site and do not often subscribe to newsletters and the like though I love altered art, paper etc. I have ordered from you before and love all the ideas you post and blog about and I really love all of your vintage things.
