'Gathered Prayers' A Lacy Book Album

Hello friends... Have you ever wanted to create something for a friend who is ill, injured, or hurting? I felt a deep draw this week to create this Lacy Book for my friend Sue who broke her elbow, has had surgery, and will be months recuperating. She is part of a huge Christian Church, I know she'll receive many, many get well cards. So this is a Lacy book that is full of many, many pockets for her to keep her cards in.  She's one of the dealers in my shop, so we'll all write little notes on some tags I've yet to make.  This whole process was such a 'feel good' project to do!

  1. I know, beyond any doubt, that if I were laid up for any reason I would want one of these books. The amount of caring and love that went into the creation is so obvious and SO much better than a store-bought card!

  6. Oh what a gorgeous heart you have to create such a lovely lacebook for your friend! It certainly makes you feel so worthwhile and brings so much joy! I'm sure she will love it. Great idea to have lots of pockets to hold her Get Well cards and tags too.
    Thanks for sharing this!

    1. Thank you so much Suzy! Yes, it was pure pleasure to create this book. I made dozens of little cards, some spiritual, most whimsical with vintage photos, and everyone is writing her little notes to include in the book. There are two large pockets too, which should hold regular get-well cards. It's always a double bonus to receive a compliment from you. You are the one who first inspired me to create lace books! I just passed your Blog onto a new friend this morning!

      Hope you're enjoying your warm weather and that it doesn't get too hot like last year. It's very, very nice here on the West Coast of California.... too nice for January. We need the rain. (Some are doing rain dances!)
      Take care,
      Sweet Blessings, Chris
