  1. All are absolutely beautiful Anne! I love all the lace and seam binding. The flowers and sprays are lovely additions, and I am so glad you used that metal piece under the ball ornament; I have a few of those (I bought some for another project) and you've inspired me to use them this way too! Thank you! Love the lantern... how pretty it would look at night on the mantel!

    BTW, I finally finished my Steampunk journal - I was following your "How To Make A Mini Album From Start To Finish" video series... and I even made my first video! I hope you can stop by to see it. Thank you so much for your instructions - I never would have tried anything like it if not for you!

  2. Every time you post something I'm just amazed at how your creativity NEVER ends ... everything is just so gorgeous and beautifully crafted. Thank you again for sharing your talent with all of us.
