mini - projects

hey friends, it's been awhile. i have honestly just been in kind of a funk lately and my creative process has been lacking. i am still in the process of trying to begin some new projects for 2010. like 365-photos and a layout a day - but i have been bad and missed a few days here and there. but i am trying to get into the groove of things. lately i have caught up with lovin mini-books. i have a few that i have been working on. and i am trying to make small simple ones to capture everyday life. this is just a quick little simple mini-book that i created awhile back of my baby girl on the tractor. there are just a few pages and it is a really simple design. i am looking for more great ideas for mini-books. so if anybody has any ideas i would totally love for you to share your info with me. until next time thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day! smiles, m-
