I’m excited to be participating in the Vintage Valentine Fabric Fat Book Swap. Sarah, of Gypsy Mermaid, is the swap hostess who put this together with a little help from our Miss Jodie of everything vintage.
There are nine of us participating which means we each make nine of the same pages, front and back.
I’ve decided to go with the traditional color red although I can definitely see many other color schemes that would be wonderful, as well. The red will be complemented by some neutral colors making it appear in more vintage style.
And of course, the traditional rose will be included on my pages.
Perhaps a little golden heart would be sweet, too.
I have to send my pages in this week. Once Sarah receives them from everyone, she will add her page and covers to them, binding it all together. Then, she will mail each of us a completed book to ooh and ah over as we devour each artful page.
Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays although I really haven’t celebrated it much in recent years. But then, February is a favorite month too. In a period of about a week, there is Valentine’s Day, President’s Day (a day off work!) and my birthday. I’ve gotten into the habit of taking my birthday off work and having some “me” time. Even though I’ll be one year older, I think I’m looking forward to February!
