Thankful for Simple Pleasures

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Pearl created this mini book, using the Homestead collection, to document some of life's simple pleasures. We hope you made time to think about what you are thankful for this weekend. If not, maybe this will inspire you.

Pearl describes the inspiration for her book. "I made an album of a road trip my boyfriend and I took to celebrate his birthday. In it, I have photos of what we were thankful for from the trip... all the simple pleasures of each other's company, the fresh air, bright blue skies, and charming home away from home."

"SEI pattern papers have this great thick quality to them making sturdy mini album pages and a cover. Some interesting things to note in the mini is how it is made up of just 4 pieces of paper scored and sewed together using a sewing machine. The design is just as interesting because the cover is actually a tri-fold so there is a flap that flips over the front cover and when the flap is opened, it reveals staggered pages. Lastly, a long piece of twine is wrapped around the album several times and securered to a button to keep the bulky pages of the book enclosed in a neat little package." So that's how you do it. Now you can make your own!
