purple hearts

i was cruising the aisles of one of my favorite art stores the other day,
and this paper caught my eye. how could i possibly resist those charming little clusters of purple hearts.....


especially when i knew how sweet they would look alongside six rows of delightful little chain stitching!

Wonderful purchase and a great use for the paper. Fresh, clean, very summery. Amazing what a bit of browsing can do for the soul.

Hi Lori, wanted to tell you that I have started working in my blank journal that I purchased from you - I absolutely love it - I love the size, the way it lays flat, I love the paper ... so much fun. I have many pages in various stages of being almost done - will start posting some next week and I will let you know when I do. I'm going to have to order another soon - I don't want to be without!

Oh Lori...I can see how you couldn't resist that paper, it's so sweet. Your journal is perfectly gorgeous. I love how you matched the section divider papers to the covers...and I'm still in disbelief at how perfect your journals always are. You work is just impeccable! xo Paulette

What a beautiful journal.
And that quote in the previous quote - very powerful - and scary.
Loved the interview and the fabulous photographed pieces!
And thank you for your comment on my blog. Yes, I ran away. But if I knew you were offering chocolate I would have made my way to your door.
XOXOXO
