Thanks for the mention and link! I've been working on pillows all morning and just came up for air... and lunch and a cruise through my fav blogs.

The book arrived yesterday - thank you so much! A quick skim found lots of cool projects and I can't wait to sit down and spend more time with it.

Hi Charlotte, I love your blog. I made a tagbook like this for my daughter before her wedding day. To make a silouette for the cover, I found an old profile picture of her. I copied it and then colored it with black marker and then copied it a second time and cut it out. Voila, instant silouette!


Hi Charlotte,

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I actually meant to include yours in my list, but I was rushing out the door to work. I'll be sure to include it next time!

Love your blog and your books.


I found you through Britt's blog. I will be back..
Love the silhouettes, BTW.


oh it's so great on the cover.....can't wait to see what you do with the inside Charlotte!


Oh my gosh! I can't believe I found your blog!! I have saved that article for months now as my daughter graduated and went to college this year. I looked all summer for a record album to use for this type of momento for her. I loved what you did! well, I just found one this week and just talked about it on my flickr pics/or blog yesterday! Now I can link your beautiful blog on the post and people can see the beautiful book with your writing up close! Now that I found the album, and your blog, I need to get on it and finally make my daughters book! you are my inspiration! Thank you for sharing this personal project. I want to finish my daughters book and give it to her by christmas. I would also love to list your blog on my links. ~Lia
