Back from vacation
and all my creative batteries are recharged. One thing that helped a bunch was a wonderful little specialty paper store in Old Town St. Charles called Rock, Paper, Scissors! I bought several sheets of amazingly beautiful papers, lengths of lovely ribbons and some things I have not seen elsewhere. One of the things I picked up was a package from Lineco (Books by Hand)that contained all the pieces to do a Sho-Sho Box. What I did not realize at the time was that this was "Just the Pieces". To get directions, you need to buy more than, as the label says, "just the pieces". I could not find anything but a finished one on line so made it up as I went. I don't think it turned out too badly. I have one more package and am sure the next one will come easier!
Be sure to visit www.gypsyrosepaperier.com tomorrow to see my no sew paper sachet (gift bag) with directions.
Have a great Thursday!
P.S. My vacation pics are on my other blog (www.postingfromparadise.blogspot.com).
