New shelves and a Mini Book

I have a  lovely neighbour, he came and put up some shelves for me so I could get all my scrapbook albums together in one place.


while I was sorting through all my albums I discovered a mini book that I had started years ago and never completed. I had done most of the embellishments even done the front cover with the title of what I wanted to put in it but not the photos. So that was my task for bank holiday Monday.

I tried to find out who had created this in the first place but I couldn't discover it at all although I had found many mini books and one or two similar but not this one. If anyone would like to make it for themselves here is the template
Today I am grateful for Camelot weather
The rain may never fall till after sundown.
By eight, the morning fog must disappear.
In short, there's simply not
A more congenial spot
For happily-ever-aftering than here
In Camelot. 
For crafting with friends 
for Adrian Plass's sense of humour 
         in his book Bacon Sandwiches and Salvation an A-Z of the Christian life he writes
Icon (1) a devotional painting or carving, usually on wood, of Christ or another holy figure (2) it is not generally know that, as a creative race, icon artists are less than confident. When addressing them on the subject of their art, one should look very directly into their faces and express one's response to their work with delicacy and subtlety. This is known in artistic circles as icon-tact.

Oh new shelves, aren't they just a joy to fill up and arrange. And that a sweet little project. Glad you rediscovered it.

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
