Hello lovely ladies!
I've had a nice holiday weekend
and I hope you have, too!
First off, I celebrated my 33rd
anniversary with my husband on Friday.
We had a lovely visit to a truly
gorgeous town in Missouri.
Some things that stood out to
me for their beauty was the
door on a house built mid-
1800's and the Carnegie Library
(below) built 1905 and on the
National Registry of Historic
We visited Riverview Cemetery
which sits high above the town of
Louisiana, MO. It has breathtaking
views of the Mississippi river and
the town below.
I also managed to get in some crafting!
I gathered some supplies from my stash
to make a new journal.
A 'smash book' of sorts. I intend to use it
to put favorite pictures, things I want to
remember, inspirations and whimsy.
I love using composition notebooks for
my journals. I start by covering it with
pretty scrapbook paper. I then prepare
it by going through and gluing two pages
together with my trusty glue stick.
I like the weight
of the pages so much better this
way and it holds up to the pieces of
scrapbook paper and pictures I glue
I am then ready to embellish with paper,
pictures, stamps and my favorite thing -
the whipped stitch edges!
Yes, it's been a most enjoyable holiday
weekend. So many blessings and so
many wonderful memories.
Thank you for visiting today!
I hope your day is wonderful!
