Paper Bag Albums for sale??!!





So, about a week ago I was approached by a super sweet lady in our community with a small request! She told me a a story about how she went to school (K- 12th) at the same school with the same 6 girls and how they have been out of school for 55 years now!! She said they meet once a year (every year!!) since school let out and always exchange little gifts with one another and share a dinner. Well one of the ladies has been diagnosed with leukemia and has less than a year to live. :( So this year she (the one that approached me) wanted her gift to the ladies to be super special. This is where I come in (LOL)! She asked me to make her 6 paper bag albums! She wants to puts photos in each of them and recipes that are special to them and little souvenirs! I left blank pages near the back so that they could write a little note in each others books! I also made a 7th book for her so she would have her own! She has offered to pay me, but I am sooooo bad at the placing monetary value on my work thing! : ) These are they!

Beautiful albums AnnMarie! I understand about putting a price on your work. Sometimes, just knowing how much the receipient will appreciate it is payment enough =-) Very nice job.
