OMG!

I have actually stumbled upon my blog .... yes, guilty again of blog abandonment .... just life getting in the way .... mostly in a good way!

I have been wanting to post this little project for a while now to the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog ... they have a wonderful little challenge called "fold it"!

I made this lovely little domino book .... plenty of folding here!  The cover was made with a domino, painted and covered in paper with a small ribbon on the sides.

 The little nest is crafted from burlap strands and faux pearl beads ....
 I loved these bird illustrations the minute I saw them, they are made from vintage drawings.

The little prints are on the front and back of each of the folded pages so there are several images to see!

I hope you enjoyed this little post!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
peace love and paper
Jo

Hey, this is Sean, your new fan that you found thought Craigslist garage sale. Great blog!

Wow!! The bird folder piece is AMAZING! Do you sell your work? That is like Victorian Art Deco Esq... I'm sure it would sell for a good size bill on the online sites like Etsy.com
