Thursday Thirteen: Edition # 28

These Are a Few of My Favorite Things!

Happy Thursday Thirteen! These are my slideshow of a few of my Favorite Things! After the first picture, the 2nd-5th pictures are bookmarks hand-made by me. I made it for a friend when we participated in Bookmarks Exchange. It is made with scrap papers material and embellishment are added in. The bookmark with the Fairy, said "Li, Let Your Imagine Fly". The bookmark that had woman in black is suppose to be Nora Roberts and it said "Nora as JDRobb" and she holding a small white paper that said "#1 New York Time Bestselling Author". I love making these bookmarks! I also cross stitches the Precious Moments and sew it into pillow for a friend 4yrs ago, on Christmas. She now pass it to her daughter. I really enjoy doing these project. It explain why I love to cross stitches and scrapbooks. And I hope to do more projects soon :)

As for the rest of the pictures, these are my family and everyone know I love to read!

Hey, Julia - what a cool idea, to do a slideshow! The cell phone is indeed a nice touch, but the bookmarks are fantastic! I'm impressed with your visual creativity; I'm visually hopeless.

I loved the slideshow that you made, rather than just listing the thirteen things. It made it so much more interesting.

Melody said...

Nicholas said...

Melody said...

I can't believe you have just received my card, oh gosh! That really takes a long time....haha...

Beautiful slideshow Julia! The first pic (opened book) got me hooked. The next one (bookmark) was so pretty... I used to cross stich too. Just the other day I was telling my sister I'll start doing that again once I'm done with my studies. Right now, it's total concentration on that. Well, not exactly total... Blogging and other reading must exist to keep me sane!

Your friends are soooo pretty. Just like you! :D

Julia said...

ladytink - thanks for comments. I really did enjoy making those booksmarks. I only make them when I participated in Bookmarks Exchange. I wonder if anyone want to see the bookmarks close up to see details on them?

Melody - yep it took me that long to get anything from you. It was like that last year LOL...can't wait to see what you think once you got the hand-made bookmarks

Alice - thanks for comments. Glad you enjoy the slide show as much as I enjoy making it. The Precious Moments cross stitches too me weeks to have that done. Than sewing it together to make pillow before sending to my friend, afterward. And you're sweet and pretty too :)

Thanks everyone for stopping by. I hope you've a good day!
