Saturday Snapshot...

I'm enjoying my books, once again.  The ones I've constructed myself.  I made this little book and it is little 2 inches by 2 inches by 4 inches deep. 
It has a woven spine, with beads and ribbons... with gross grain ribbon closure, it needs this it's a fat little book.
it has twelve, very generous, signatures...

I dedicated this little book to gifts purchased for my grand nieces and nephews.  It seems that I'll be adding a new chapter.  My niece, on my husband's side, is having her first baby.  It's good to write things down, one's memory is not what it use to be... then again it should be bigger, as one's fingers are stiffer than usual to fill in those signatures.

Happy Snapshot Saturday.

Awwww that is a beautiful thing, dear Irene! And no, one's memory is not what it used to be. Nor one's knees, hips, etc. My constant lament. xoxo

Love this!!! I would love to learn how to make something like this. Though I'm terrible at actually following through and WRITING in such little things.
