Ellie


You may remember the life book I started for Ellie, it's a beautiful handmade book made by Kala you can see it HERE
I haven't made an entry in it for such a long time and I thought it was time I caught up, so here she is on her 2nd Birthday (she has actually just celebrated her 3rd).
Already the accordian book is revealing her growth and stirring memories...I am so pleased I started this project, by the time she reaches 18 it will be a wonderful stroll through her childhood and the perfect gift.

I do remember this. Do you have any photos of the book unfolded - both sides?

That's a wonderful idea, Anita! It'll be an amazing gift for her, with no doubt :)

Anita, the book is such a wonderful idea and eventual gift. My Grand Daughter just turned one and I think I will do a book for her. My daughter wants a piece of art of her Mom, my grand Dauter and herself. That should be the one I do first.

I'm also going to do a drawing of you too, if that is okay with you.

Thanks Shirley, no I don't have a pic of it unfolded but I'll make sure I take one after my next entry...Watch this space! ;)

Thanks Anais

Scott, I think starting your own book will be wonderful for your GrandDaughter.
I used an accordian style book so I can add to it easily if need be.
I'd be flattered if you draw me, there are some refs of me in my Flickr account, feel free to browse and use which ever you prefer.
