I hope you are having a Terrific Tuesday. I've been trying out new things in my craft stash but today I want to show a golden oldie. Remember when I showed my "Birds of a feather" mini album last week I said that I bought the kit for a mini album about my house. Well, everything was out so I did just that. If you missed out on "Birds of a feather", just click here.
The kit is from BoBunny (Alora) and I wouldn't normally use colors like this on layouts but I love them in mini albums. And the story behind my mini book: My family moved to our current house 8 years ago - the boys were in high school and Wynand and I both worked for big wineries in Stellenbosch but since then everything has changed. The children are grown up, we have our own business and we are part of a family owned winery. With everything changed, our house now needs a major facelift and I plan to do just that after we have finished harvesting. In Sunny SA that is mid April.
With my book finished, I just have to start on the renovation. Until then, I'll be browsing Pinterest for ideas. I also plan to slipcover my chairs - will tell you all about it once I get going. With the mini album done, I will start on the "before" pictures and then will add the "after" once it's done. Wanna see what it looks like? Sneak peak just for you:
And my inspiration?
I love The Play Date Cafe and this picture made me smile. If you want to hop over and see all the entries, just click here. I'm #50. While you're there, why don't you leave a comment telling them how much we enjoyed this picture?
I'm off to do one of my new projects. Have a great day and thanks for looking. I just love it when you come to play at Play as U Go.
