Oh How I Love Those Itty Bitty Books

Hope that everyone is doing well! I have been busy, busy, busy. Mostly, my Mommy cap has been on a lot more then usual. But that's okay. I'm blessed! I have been in a funk lately though with everything that is on my plate at the moment and haven't felt my creative blogging spark. I haven't been visiting my favorite blogs much either and that really needs to change. My blogging friends feed my soul. Here is something that makes my soul happy. I've been finishing up on some more Itty Bitty Book pages. I can't even tell you how addicted I am to this group. The creator, Mary Ann from Follow Your Bliss, and her sister Jo from Labor of Love are so amazing. I can't even begin to tell you how much joy they have added to my life, my girls and my Moms. They are two very special gals with huge hearts. They even got some of the group together to make me a cheer up book. I can't even tell you how much it touched me and it gave me many happy tears. It is something I do want to share with you when I get the chance.

This is a recent Itty Bitty that I thought I would share with you. Mary Ann has been making these slide shows of the finished books and I think this one, The Itty Bitty Green Book, is one of my all time favs. I can't wait to hold it in my hands and see it up close. The group is coming up on it's one year anniversary. I think we just finished our thirteenth book. Itty bitty blue, house (shaped like a house), Christmas, Halloween, Marie Antoinette, pink, winter, prom dress, spring, Valentine (shaped like a heart), green, birthday, and paper doll. I think I got them all. I have them all displayed in one spot in my studio and the girls and I love to look through them. They are very inspiring too when I am having a creative block. Our next book is the Itty Bitty tea cup, shaped like a tea cup. Just love them!

Have a great week and I hope to post again soon. I have lots to share, I've just been a busy Mommy.

Wearing your Mommy hat is a very essential accessory. Time spent doing that is always fruitful! Thanks for sharing the slideshow, I loved the photos.

I know just how difficult it can be to juggle being a Mum and everything else you need to do on a daily basis. I am a Mum of 4yr old twin boys and the keep me on my toes to say the very least. But I do find time to create and visit beautiful blogs like yours, so thank you for your lovely blog, I look forward to my next visit. Mandy x
