New projects to share

It's always exciting to realize that I have some projects that I haven't posted yet. Especially when those projects are already photographed and ready to go.

First is my latest Crafting Jewish Style project. I do occasionally have some non-Jewish readers, so I will explain. On Saturday night, at the end of the Sabbath/Shabbat/Shabbos (depending on your pronunciation), a blessing is said over a candle, some wine, and a pleasant smelling spice, as a way to mark the end of shabbat, and the beginning of the week.  So I whipped up this little kit, that provides the matches and the spice, all wrapped up in a cute little tin. I simply adore the colors and patterns in the Crafting Jewish Style lines. They just always work perfectly for me.

And, I have a layout that I have not yet shared, about Sam. I did share this one a while ago:

Which I thought captured Sam quite nicely. And it's one of my favorite layouts. But I had a little more to say about the matter of his joie de vivre, so I also made this (using my Cocoa Daisy October kit):

When I planned the first layout, I had originally planned to include all the photos in the second layout. But that big blue picture was so beautiful to me, that anything I added took away from it's beauty. And, so, layout number two was born. Really I love the way Sam loves the world.


  1. So pretty, Aliza! The CJS papers and the blue pearls are the perfect match and that layout of Sam is fabulous! Love the 3 banners on the top.

  2. Love your Havdala project! And such a great use of the CJS stuff!
