Mini 'thoughts' book!

Hi everyone! Sandi here. Today I'd like to share a mini 'thoughts' book that I made with my amazing Zeus and Zoe kit! This was so fun putting it together and oh so easy! I simply took the pattern 'instruction sheet', that was included in my kit, and folded and sewed a tad, and then added some kit embellishments and voila!
 
Here's the cover:

 
I added a little gesso and pp, from the kit, for the cover. I thought I would fill the pages with things that I like, want to try, or simply what makes me happy.
 
Here's my first page:
 
 
This year, I'd like to add more texture/embellies to my pages. For this page, I added some pp and that sweet button, from my kit.
 
Here's another page:
 
 
For this page, I added some stones, from a vintage necklace that was in my kit. The pic doesn't show how pretty the stones are in real life.....but they are fab!
 
Just think of what kind of a mini you could do with one of these kit! And right now, Marivic is putting together 'custom' kits. Yup, that's right, so if you have some ideas, just let her know your thoughts and if you want to add some amazing goodies, I invite you to visit our Zeus and Zoe Etsy shop....you're going to love what you see!
 
See you again soon! You're going to love what the DT has created for you to feast your eyes on in the weeks to come!
 
Hugs, Sandi!

Hi Sandi! This is such a great little project. It's perfect to carry around in your purse so you could add little bits of inspiration when you're out. TFS, have a good weekend!!

This is a great book. I like your style and what you added to it. Did you notice that you left off an H on your title though?

So I have a question. You all refer to a Zeus and Zoe kit in your posts. Is this something available to customers or do you mean what is sent to you as a DT member? I've looked in the Etsy shop severall times and don't see a "kit". I'd be interested in something like this if it exists.

Hi Amber....Oh my, I didn't even notice the 'H'....lol! Thanks for pointing that out!

For the kit, you can email Marivic and let her know what kind of a kit you are looking for and she will make one up for you. If you go under the Etsy "sales" section, in our Etsy shop, you can see what the past kits have looked like.
