Sabrina's Wedding Gift.

I wanted to make a gift for Sabrina's wedding as well as the cards for her shower. I had so many ideas and ended up making an ABC album. I like this format, and the albums can be fun. Another idea I had was a Wedding Album, that I still may make for a future gift.

Anyway here are the pages of the album I put together.

And here is the cover. I haven't decided if I will add anything to the back of the album yet. I may add a private note to Sabrina about the book, but a sentiment about sharing her life with her new husband will also be in there.

Shower Thank Yous

I have been seeing my physiotherapist Sabrina, on and off for many years now, and recently she told me she is getting married to her long time boyfriend Janssen.

I wanted to make her thank you cards for her wedding, but when I found out she was having over 200 guests, I reconsidered and offered her Thank You cards for her Bridal shower instead.

I made these cards for her to choose from:

The final one is the one she chose, so I made 60 cards and presented them to her for her shower gift.

Gardening Celebration Space

I wanted to do a Mother's Day celebration space, but it was only for a day. The work to shop my home, design the space with what I have found, and make it aesthetically pleasing is too much for just a day display. 

In the end I decided to put together a gardening theme. My mother was an avid gardener and had a beautiful flower garden in the back of her house. So this was my tribute to my mum, who passed away in 2004, ten years ago.

I didn't think I had a lot for this space, but as it turned out I did. I made a trip to Dollarama and found a wire fence, and fake grass, as well as some silk flowers and windmills. I had the flower pots, the watering can, the trowel and gloves, and I had that adorable bird, that I have used countless times, that was a Christmas gift from one of my kids at school.

I'm really happy with the way it turned out and I think my mum would enjoy it, too.
