bookmaking at the fork in the road





had a great time with the girls crafting and eating sweets last night. woulda shoulda taken a pic or two but i was busy guarding the candy buffet from the little guy who stayed up way past his bedtime.
the little books and their immediate appeal (and my growing addiction to making them) means there might soon be a picture rail in my dining room with a mini library of them all lined up in a row.
i made a couple this afternoon for my girlfriends whose birthdays are coming up. gifted with a little envelope from starbucks -- easy and sweet. (remember when your mom told you that the best presents to give are the ones you want to keep for yourself ? ;)
it's a sunny day, and a growing to do list, and i'm singing a little ditty to avoid overthinking about where the next year or two as i transition to mom with all the kids in school will take me(read: lots of more available hours -- what sort of work do i want to fill them with? besides writing, of course ;)
a little doris day for all of us who want to know how the next chapters will go (even though we know deep down it's always better to be pleasantly surprised by life instead)

When I was just a little girl
I asked my mother, what will I be
Will I be pretty, will I be rich
Here's what she said to me.

Que Sera, Sera,
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours, to see
Que Sera, Sera
What will be, will be.

When I was young, I fell in love
I asked my sweetheart what lies ahead
Will we have rainbows, day after day
Here's what my sweetheart said.

Que Sera, Sera,
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours, to see
Que Sera, Sera
What will be, will be.

Now I have children of my own
They ask their mother, what will I be
Will I be handsome, will I be rich
I tell them tenderly.

Que Sera, Sera,
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours, to see
Que Sera, Sera
What will be, will be.

  1. Those little books were great! Thanks again for the invite. A little candy overload for me though.
