One of my favorite things

Is reading through the coffee table books I have made this year, from my digital scrapbooking pictures. Trixie and I are sitting in my little living room, next to the big one, which has been taken over by Alessandro's pool table. Trixie is looking at some of my little Italian things - Venetian glass, the gilded candlestick from San Gimignano...





This is me, showing what some of my Blurb coffee table books look like, that I have made.

The home always looks a lot more cosy when there is a kitty around.

Oh you look gorgeous firstly and secondly I was surprised about your American accent. So you moved to Australia from the US? How great. It got me thinking about how cool it would be to hear all bloggers speak! Your books are amazing. Seriously. And if you change your mind about the cosmetic work he he, it is in Waramanga shops that the sign is referring too - can you imagine? Must be another way the ACT Government racks in the dollars I guess!!!

Oh, thank you for sharing those!! I love that big 13 x 11! I usually print 8x8 books, but I'm thinking maybe I should do a big one now.

Loved seeing a peek into your home!

These are awesome Leslie and I loved hearing your accent, quite American and not much Aussie drawl. Thank you for showing me your books.

That's funny because I thought it was pretty Australian!! Great video of your books! It was great seeing them on video. They all look fabulous!! Did you use Blurb? I still need to do this one day. Now that I got my new computer, maybe it will happen sooner than later.

Ok, now did you have that last line "my Blurb coffee table books" the whole time or did you add it? If it was there before my first comment...excuse my foggy brain that missed it. I DO need to look into Blurb. Perhaps during my Christmas break :)

Okay, where do I go to get started???
Your work is wonderfully enchanting. I ordered Adobe Photo Shop and for the life of me, I don't know where to start! I can physically scrapbook but I'm tired of all the mess and piles of boxes containing everything!
I'm either very inspired or terribly frustrated...I should choose inspiration, shouldn't I!
~~~Blessings~~~

Hi Leslie, Thanks for stopping by my blog last week (I was on holiday in Nice, France!! - AND it poured with rain every day except Saturday).
No, I didn't go to school in Brisbane. I was born in Perth, one of 5 girls. Went to primary school in Perth and then secondary in Adelaide.
Love your blog by the way.
