The pink heart button in the middle was made by my little sister out of some sort of dough or clay. She is thinking of doing a guest tutorial blog on here to show how to make them. :) I would also at some point like to do a tutorial on making the Journey Journals.
My beautiful niece (who moved to Missouri, I miss her and her family so much!) made a "bookworm" hat for our project. This is her first hat of the year for <3 Hats from the Heart/My Journey Journals <3. With the move to Missouri, she has so been so busy packing, etc that things have been kind of crazy for her! I am so glad things have slowed down a little bit for her and they are happily settling in to their new life! Here is her first contribution of the year.
I just love the little worm, he is just adorable! And, of course, I am a totally nerdy bookworm!! I just love getting lost in a good book! No, I really don't ever want one of those "Kindles" or "Nooks", because I LOVE the smell of books and turning the pages. To me it is just magical to get lost in the characters of a well written book, my escape from the reality of this sometimes harsh world we live in.
I hope to maybe have a couple of Journey Journals done this weekend, as well as, the Mardi Gras hat I am working on. I am running kind of late on birthday presents AGAIN! I get so caught up on making beanies, that I forget birthdays (even though I have a calendar with them all written in) coming up and end up rushing to get something done. Ah well, I am so happy that the people in my life understand that to me this takes priority over everything else LOL! I guess that means I better sign off and get busy on this hat while I can, as I must clean in few hours and get ready to have the "kids" over for a barbecue. :) Until my next update, may the light of God's love help you to Glow from Within.....<3
