A Garden Mini Album

A couple of months ago, my dear friend, Vicki Boster, posted on her blog that she would be having a giveaway.  One of the items she gave away was my mini album.  If you are not familiar with Vicki and have never visited her blog, I invite you to do so.  You are in for a real treat - her knitting is to die for, the photographs always look professionally done and her designer nests are fantastic.

Without further ado, here we go ...

I wish you could see the colors in person - they are so vibrant.  The basket hung from the binder ring is perfect.  Somebody (wish I could remember who!) gave me this years ago.  I can't tell you how many times I almost threw it away.  Sure glad I didn't!

Another friend(?) preserved this tiny flower - isn't it beautiful?
How sweet is this little bird's necklace?

Many years ago I was playing around with Glossy Accents and seed beads.  See? it pays to save things.  Ummm.  Would that be considered hoarding?

I have the best friends!!!  See the little bee and the beautiful peach rose on the bottle cap and the yellow fiber?  Yep - all for me.  Thank you, friends - I just wish I could remember your names.

This quote is my favorite.  What's yours?

I've already told you my favorite quote.  I think perhaps this is my favorite page.  Which page is your favorite?


That wraps it up for this album.  I haven't created a mini since this one.  I've been saving some beautiful papers so maybe it's time - I just need a theme or a reason ...


  1. Oh Sue, this is utterly fabulous! I agree on the favorite page but my favorite single element is the tin bird. Wow!

  2. Ooh, I love the seed-bead butterfly. Gorgeous!

  3. Your album is delightful! Hard to pick, but I like the bird and her sweet necklace and I love the quote on that same page.

  4. Your beautiful mini book is beautiful -- and it sent to a very loving home:)

    I'm so grateful to have such a talented friend-- xoxoxo

    1. it was Vicki-Mine! and I truly adore it!

  5. Your mini book is amazing, I love it. You are so talented, and I love the bird hanging gin my craft room.

  6. This mini is super. You're good. HB

  7. Wow, you really do have a blog!
    I love the vibrant colors in this mini. Nicely done, Sue!

  8. Here I go to try to post for the 4th time.
    I won your mini garden book in Vicki's giveaway!
    Yup-that's my book in your post! I love it, adore it and since I am a gardner (name) and hobby, it made my even happier to receive it.
    It sits proudly on one of my tables with a butterfly tray and an orchid where I can see it every day. I turn the pages and leave them splayed open to enjoy different pictures and quotes. Thank you for making it and I would say it is time to make another.
