Look at What My Neighbor Brought Me

I have been blessed by having a very wonderful neighbor. She and I have been coffee house buddies for years now. We wave most mornings, some afternoons and occasionally even remember to call each other. Despite the casual appearance of our relationship, she knows how to make me smile.

A few months back I made collage for one of monthly posts. When I finished it, I took it over to her house to show her because she is my artistic inspiration. She is not afraid to express her thought unlike me who likes to keep things superficial at times.

Today I came home to find an interesting box.When I opened it, I first found this.

After removing the top layer, I found this.

Yep, paper goodness!

There was even some of her trial pieces. I love these.

I can't wait to make some more mini albums and journals for Christmas.

I will apologize to my husband now for any half started projects he may find on the dinner table.
