My gifts, Day 8.


Here is the pile of little fabric and paper collage books before I wrapped them up. I used all kinds of treasure and junque to embellish them.




They are kind of shabby around the edges, and imperfect, and feel so nice in my hand with the textures of the fabric and buttons and things.






After sewing a little bag for them, I wrapped them in tissue, tucked them in, and wrapped a torn scrap of red around to hold the day 8 tag. Then I put them in their mailing envelopes.
In my haste to get them out, just as Nialle was being admitted to the hospital, I forgot to include my tags with my name on them.

That's it! They are all in the hands of the artists I made them for, and I hope they enjoy them, and find some special little bits and pieces to tuck into the pages.
