Time for Myself

I finally decided to do it. And it wasn't very much. This morning, I took a couple of hours out of taking care of the house, kids and orders to do something for myself. I have all sorts of projects lined up for "downtime", but I never seem to get any.

So what did I do with my couple of hours for myself? I made bookmarks! Nothing very fancy, but cute all the same. Each one is made of fabric I designed using my illustrations so they are definite Chichiboulie originals. And each is topped with a coordinating gingham ribbon. I love gingham ribbon.

And to make things more fun, I used props to photograph them and got to incorporate another one of my loves... names! Photographed on the page showing each name, the bookmarks are named after each one of my children and each represents that child's personality in my opinion.

Today's was a well needed break and I'm so happy to have done it. Tonight it will be back to orders.

It looks like you've been busy!

Your diary page is very pretty- and I loved the duck like ravaoli post!

Your book marks are adorable- and how great that you got to incorporate name love into it as well!
