Vintage Dressmaker Journal

This year my son left home. He moved to another city to follow his dream of working in the film industry. Some of you will know what that means! I am thrilled for him and so proud, he goes after his dreams and it is inspiring to see. But, I miss him so much and there has been some major adjustments and of course some tears.
He is studying Directing and Scriptwriting at South Seas Film School in Auckland. For his final project he will create a short film and as the Director is responsible for the providing the budget. He is fortunate that a lot of the equipment is on loan from the school and crew are volunteers. He still needs some $$ and I volunteered to make a journal to auction as a fundraiser. The auction is running on Youtube and Ethan and I are thrilled with the response. We have two more days to go, before the auction closes. 
I will need to take a lot of photos of this one - it is gorgeous. The cover is rich and lush with layers of ink and glimmer mists in browns, golds, copper and bronze.

Here is the link if you would like to see a flip through

Many Thanks for all the kind comments and fabulous support I have received in the last week. 
I am so grateful.

What have I been doing?????

It does not seem possible that it has been so long since I last posted. I have to admit that I have been distracted by instagram. It is quick and easy to use and very easy to upload photos to.

If you would like to check it out ..... This is where I am sharing sneak peaks of what I am working on

The other thing I have been focused on is making journals. I have completed a number of commissioned journals and I am currently working on two more - they are private at the moment ... secrets!

I have also finished a number of journals for sale and will be listing them here shortly. In the meantime here is a sneak peek!

Thanks for visiting
