WOYWW - An Inspiration Book for my Daughter


The Inspiration Book for Miranda... theme is Butterflies

This is the floor to my left side...

This is the front of my own Inspirarion Book, the first couple of pages of which can be seen below, a couple of posts down...

Oh Dear, what a terrible mess, there is stuff everywhere, no matter how I tidy!!! I need to get the boxes and stuff back on the shelves and tidy the floor up, or I won't be able to get ito the room at all.... thing is there is so much creativity going on at the moment, I feel I don't want to stop, as I might not get going again!!! Reading on the ArtsyCrafts group about people practising for the Sir Tim day NEXT WEEK!!!!!!!!! EEK... whoops to practising and whoops to it being next week!!!!

 This is the first page spread in Miranda's book... I have used some Mariposa  and K&Co papers plus plain coloured cardstock. A nestie shape is the hinge for each page.

 The butterflies down the sides here, are the pull-outs for each large tag in the envelope pockets. Each large tag will contain an inspirational saying, to lift her spirits and help her out when she feels the need... she so enjoyed thumbing through my book, I could not resist the excuse to make another one!!! She finally got back to work yesterday, after a period of feeling very low... she has had many set-backs in the last 6 years, any one of which would have made a lesser soul sink!!! I love and admire her so much xxx

This is another spread, with it's two tags, the righthand one is actually the subject of the TIO challenge this week - " paying Spring forward". I do hope she likes this book and gets help from it, from handling and reading it... Thanks for looking and have a great week... for those who wonder WHY on earth I would shame myself showing such an untidy workspace, pop over to Stamping Ground to see our queen Julia, whose fab idea this snooping was!!!
Love and Light
Frankie

I've had a really good nosey today, Frankie. everything in your space is soooooo interesting!!
This butterfly book is just stunning, your daughter will be so thrilled with it and I'm sure it'll brighten even her darkest day, I know it would mine. What a Mum you are to create this for her.
Enjoy your day with Tim. I have a friend going tomorrow and she is so nervous and excited she's afraid she'll spend the whole time in the loo!!!! Hope not 'cos I want to pick her brains with all she's learnt.
Thanks for sharing your wonderful space, Frankie.

Hello Frankie, the books are absolutely beautiful and the tags are so gorgeous, they would revive anyone's spirit. I believe Sir T is already in the country, I so wish I was going to be there but 'fraid not. I'm sure you will enjoy it. Elizabeth x #61

Good lord what a magnificent work of art! I think if inspiration flows and creativity follows, then don't stop to tidy up...wait till the mojo needs a rest - then it will re-invigorate!

Wanda said...

The inspiration book for Miranda is absolutely gorgeous Frankie. I'm sure she will be delighted with it and proud to show it to her friends. I LOVE untidy work spaces. It shows a creative mind is at work.
