Leaves and Lace
I'm excited to tell you about changes to my handmade Etsy shop! As many of you who are also Etsy sellers know, we were recently given the opportunity to change our shop names. My handmade shop was called Twice Shy Re-stored, a name which I found clever and suitable a couple of years ago -- but not anymore. So, I took advantage and gave my shop a name I like much better: Leaves and Lace!

Since, as you know, it's been looking like this around here...
I've taken advantage of cosy-at-home time these last couple of days
to work on some new ephemera journals for my "new" shop!
You may recognize part of the covers of these two journals;
they were collages that I made for Mary Green's
monthly collage challenges the last couple of months.
I mounted them onto book covers and I just love them!
I'm also very pleased with how these two came out --
especially the one on the left, which is the very first
ephemera journal I've ever made for a man!
Something different in these four journals is
the use of Braille pages for interest.
Each of these also has either a letter from a little girl to her father,
or one from a wife to the husband (same family.)
The family was experiencing a separation in 1918 due to the war.
I love them all, but this might be my favorite,
as I used text from Pride and Prejudice on the cover!
If you want to see more, all the pages of all the journals
are shown in the listings, in my freshly-named shop!
