"Sleigh bells ring
Are you listening
In the lane
Snow is glistening
A beautiful sight,
We're happy tonight
Walking in a winter wonderland."
I haven't always lived in the desert. In fact, my hubby and I both grew up in Pennsylvania, and back when we were kids (many, many years ago), we had some of the most amazing snowstorms ever, which, of course, I started thinking about when I was working on this new album, Winter Wonderland.
Let's go down memory lane.
Do you remember the feeling of giddiness and delight when you fell back into a snowdrift to make a snow angel?
Do you remember screeching and shrieking when someone hit you with a fresh snowball?
Do you remember building snow forts...perfect for hiding from those fresh snowballs?
Do you remember wet mittens and scarves...and delightful hot chocolate to warm you up?
And how about the awe-inspiring hush that came with watching the snowfall...and seeing the glistening trees and bushes?
Or maybe romantic walks through the snow with your sweetie?
It could be that you experienced the exhilaration of skiing down the slopes of fresh snow, or skating on the thick ice of your local lake or pond...or how about the whoosh of coming down a hill on a sled, toboggan or inner tube?
It could be that these memories are way back from your own childhood...or they could be recent ones in spending time with your own kids and grandchildren. Whichever they are, this handmade album, "Winter Wonderland" is the perfect way to awaken and display those memories with your pictures and stories.
The book cover is made from padded fabric (pre-sewn for you) and the interior pages are sturdy watercolor paper...perfect for layering the elements that make up each page. Think ice skates, trees, sleds, snowflakes, and more snowflakes :) all pulled together to create a shabby, vintage and somewhat rustic piece of art in book form. You will love the imported German clear glass glitter sprinkled here and there throughout the book...just like glistening snow! And, I know that you will be so excited to play with the different textures...pure wool fibers, twigs, fabrics, paper, glitter, and metal. Working with neutral colors on each page allows the beautiful colors of your winter pictures to stand out...you know, bright hats, mittens, and coats, and all the other funky winter gear.
If you've put together one of my book projects, you know how much I love incorporating pockets, pouches, flaps, and folded cards on each of the pages...a perfect way to display art and design as well as giving you room for pictures and journaling.
Adding a bit of whimsy is always so much fun! Wild and wooly for sure! :)
