Around Here: January in Photos

If every month is like January, I think we'll be good this year!!
Our month was full of fun stuff - snow, crazy warm weather, trips to the mountains, CHA in Cali and more! Hoping the rest of the year shows up January.

DIY: Love Letters Mini Album

Love is in the air!
Valentine's Day is just around the corner and this year I'm giving the gift of words to my three favorite people (and maybe some candy too...). 

I put together this sweet little Love Letter book using the new collection from One Little Bird, Cheri! I love making books like these because they are so fast and so easy - and such a perfect little gift!  

You can check out this walk through video to see how super easy they are to make!!  I hope you will make one for your family and friends too!  

I sewed my book together, but as I mentioned in the video, if you don't have a sewing machine, you can always use ribbon or even adhere the pages back-to-back!

And you don't have to print the embellishments on vellum, but I really think it adds a nice touch and texture to the book! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Go make a love letters book!! xoxo
