Revisiting Old Friends….

I have been thinking about this for a while, so here goes…

a while ago (like 10 yrs) I wrote a bunch of little booklets from my desktop…
"Just Plain Folk"
"Harvest Tyme"
"Wytches Stytches"
"Spring Tyme"
"Summer Tyme"
(see a pattern here?)
they were in a 5" x 7", stapled format and I sold quite a few of them…
They included lots of my fine-line drawings for you to use in your needlework ~
rug hooking, punch & appliqué.

I 'retired' them because they were a lot (ALOT) of work to put-together.
but
now I am revamping them into a larger, spiral-bound format.
this means that you wouldn't have to resize the drawings to use them…
...as they will be my 'actual drawn' size.

So, with that said,
I have begun with this one first:

"My Favorite Things ~ a journal of inspiration from Notforgotten Farm" ©2007

 this is a fictional journal,
based in the year 1863 and 'written' by a farmwife (written by me, of course…)
a month-by-month journey through writings and doodles to help foster your imagination and creativity.


24 pages, spiral-bound, laser printed & desktop published right here at the farm



'everyday' doodles & motifs


the book measures 8 1/2" x 11"
with full-size drawings for you to trace and use…


page from april 1863



winter themed drawings


I'll be releasing each of my older little books in this format.
I really think this is a better idea than having to resize them, don't you?

"My Favorite Things"
is now available in my ETSY shop
(link at top of blog under my header too)


Shopping with Charlie today, post office run and banking to do.
We are expecting 'falling weather' here tonight into tomorrow.

Hoping you're all snug and keeping happy!!


* Blessed be *
