These are photos of the altered sock monkey themed album I created for my best friend's daughter for Christmas.

I started with a blank chipboard album, added fun colorful papers, quotes, buttons, flowers, rhinestones and anything else I could think of! I fastened it together with little silver rings adorned with ribbons, more button and tags. How fun! I hope she likes it...

Waiting for Halloween

My Crow Mannequin, a special order for a dear friend
My lovely Witch mannequin
It feels like forever since I've sat down and done something creative. It's not that I haven't wanted to. There just never seems to be enough time! But, summer is over, the kids are back in school and I'm running out of excuses. Okay, I'll never run out of excuses. But, I still need to get going. It's almost Christmas!

Before Christmas however, is Halloween. And, I LOVE Halloween! Seriously, what is there not not to love about a holiday where you have an excuse to eat all of the candy you want and get to be a witch, a princess or a rock star? Anyway, I have finally buckled down and here are the results of a couple of my latest projects.
