"The home should be the treasure chest of living."
Hello to All!
Earlier this week, when I heard the sad news of the passing of much loved Olivia Newton-John, I read some stories about the last few years of her life. One story that really resonated with me was about the home where she chose to spend her latter years. She had sold off all of her properties except for a horse ranch in Santa Barbara, California, which apparently was the place that was her "heaven on earth". According to a source, this home "gave her many calming moments in her final days."
When I read that story, I knew I had to include it in this post because this brand new creatologie project kit is all about celebrating house and home. Sometimes I think that many of us take our homes for granted...we spend a lot of time there so we just don't really think about celebrating it. But, for many of us, it is a calming place, a place to share with friends and family, a place to create, and a safe place where we can freely express ourselves. I have to agree with something Channing Pollock once said..."Home is the most popular and will be the most enduring of all earthly establishments." Well said!
In that vein, allow me to introduce this oh-so-special album...Celebrate House and Home!
The cover is amazingly detailed, with tiny accents on each hand-created house. You will love accessorizing each house with the different elements provided in your kit. And, you can choose whether you want to machine stitch, hand stitch, or just simply glue together your houses. The cover is a treasure trove of mixed media...fabrics, trims, wood, metal, paper, and ink all layered to create a highly dimensional vignette that you just want to touch.
The hand-stitched book is constructed of heavy watercolor paper which will stand up to inks and paints.
All of the interior pages are consistent with the theme of house and home and some fun pre-printed quotes are even included if you want to use them. There are tags, pockets, cards, and envelopes for you to tuck your stories and photos into and most of the pages can stand alone with the art you create if you so choose.
Consider using the album to feature your current home, or maybe a series of homes you have lived in, or maybe the home of a special family member like a parent or grandparent. So many great memories come with our homes and what better way to preserve those memories than to include them in a hand-created album?
Check out the dimension on this page...gorgeous handmade paper for the background with textured brick (done for you)...just lovely!
