Winter White Fat Book Swap

My pages are done and just about ready to get in the mail. I just cannot believe the incredible time I had making these pages. I almost don't want to give them away!!! Is that horrible??!!! This project has truly inspired me to branch out. Here's a picture of the stack. Won't these pages make such a delightful book?!

I had such fun with all the lacey trims. Next is a picture of two of the pages I made.

We each made a total of twelve pages which will be compiled into a book by Robin (Thrifty Miss Prissy). I'll show you the rest after the books get sent back to us. We do each wind up with one of our own pages. It will be interesting to see how Robin finishes up these fat books. Her plan was to get books from a thrift store and use the fronts and backs for our books. The only snippets of info she gave us was that she bought some beautiful white ribbon and plans on painting the covers white so we can then embellish our cover as we wish.

It's a bit of a letdown when a project is complete. I do have other creative projects on my "to do" list so I really need to move on and get going. So much to do this holiday season!! What fun!



Hi Joyce,
I can see that you would want to keep them...very pretty and lots of hard work. Can't wait to see the finished book.
Happy weekend.

I can certainly understand why you would want to keep it! Certainly a labor of love went into the pages. Would love to see the finished book.
