May the magic be yours

(Image Source: Bing)
My, oh my, where has time gone?! I can hardly believe it's been a month since my last post! I can only blame it on my new passion: mini albums. If you are a crafter/altered art "connoisseur" you'll probably know what they are. Mini albums vary in size and styles. Most of mine are constructed by folding a single sheet of paper in order to create pockets to insert tags, photos, and secret messages. Fun, simple and certainly addictive :0) I will try and add some photos to my next post.

It will be a bittersweet Christmas. Our son will not be with us this year. Mothers out there will know what I mean...however, our home is ready, shopping is done. As I wrap the last gift and turn down the lights I seek comfort in the things I hold dear...

Family, friends, trinkets, mementos, gathered while taking a walk and discovering a small, tucked in a corner little shop right off the beaten path.

I want to wish each and everyone a special season filled with love and inner peace.

May the magic be yours!

Note: I have tried to leave messages on your Blogs but for some weird reason I've been unable to! Please know I am not ignoring you, I may have been busy with the mini albums but never too busy to drop by and see what you guys are up to!


  1. Happy Xmas Alina.

    Several people have reported problems with leaving comments on my blog. Others seem to be able to do so quite easily. I wonder if it has something to do with pop-up blocking software...?

    I'll fiddle with a few settings and will see if can overcome the problem.

  2. Hi Dear Alina! Sending a warm, Merry Christmas to you! I can't wait to see some of your mini albums...it's so fun to have something that you enjoy so much.

  3. hello sweetie, try un-ticking the "stay signed in" box, that worked for me.
    Enjoy the festivities, look forward to hearing all about it xx

  4. So sorry you're missing your son - I have mine here, but my daughter is in Denver, so I know the feeling. She'll be here in a couple of weeks, though. :)
