One of the things I greatly miss are my long childhood walks in the forest near our home. Since then so many things have changed that it is no longer safe to wonder by yourself in such areas so I am only left with the nostalgia of past years. I am really hoping my son will bring back a part of that: climbing trees and pretending they are space ships, running through tall grass fields, admiring wild flowers in their natural habitat. I am thinking of all these while waiting for him to be born.... any day, any minute now.
Some of that love of nature is back with me in the studio while creating. Like this mini album: I made it because I had some black cardstock left from a previous project and also to repurpose a lovely card I had received years ago. I decided to say goodbye to most of the cards I have been collecting, but I am saying goodbye in my own way: by transforming them in something else, by giving them a new life.
Notice the oak leaf? Someone sent it to me in a card swap years ago and I have been hoarding it ever since. What's with me and oak leaves? Anyway, it was time to say goodbye and so I did.
The album stayed with Bianca for a while but she has just announced me it has found a new home. She is helping me clear out the huge scrap piles I have gathered over the past 5 years and through it gaining a new interest for bookbinding. You will be certainly seeing more of our shared projects.
I am looking forward to the new bookbinding
