Friends from the 80's

I recently discovered that thing called "Minibooks". Thanks to Elsa, from "Just a few paper designs". Now, although, is not my passion, I have made like 7 in the past 2 months. I recently visited my family in Puerto Rico, and I brought mini books, and dress form tags...everyone was thrilled about these grandmama, told me that she will keep it close to her heart, because (the mini) was about all of her grandchildren. I included the pics, because I knew she wasn't going to do it. So when she saw the project, she was very excited about it.
I've also made one for "mami" for my Miri. That's how we used to call ourselves, when my sisters and I used to played housewife's. Anyway, My mother's mini can be seen at the bottom of this blog, is the red one. A wrap around mini that Elsa also taught us how to do. Here is an image of that mini book, that I called "Valentino"with love to my dear, adorable, mother.

Baby Minibook First year

A minibook to collect all of those mini pics of my son's early years. These pics are so small I wondered for years what to do with them. Well now that I discovered the minibooks, it seems to be made for each other. Not finished yet.

Crochet Vanilla Dress

This dress belonged to my Grandmama, Villita, which I adore. It's a crochet dress, with underskirt in the same color. Beautifully created. I love this dress.
