Mother's Day Weekend is upon us, Maddalee Friends and there are many cute projects to do for Mother's Day being posted online these past few weeks. I thought it would be the cutest thing to design a Grandma/Nana card that was easy for everyone to do. Of course we included a Mommy version, also! Be sure to check out other fun gifts for Mother's Day in the Paper Arts Tab, also. These little cards are a free download at Maddalee, please subscribe if you haven't before downloading, thank you so much!

Here it is, as promised, my Maddalee Friends! This fun little "Don't Eat That, Mr Frog!" book is just perfect to make a little one happy. It's also easier than it might look, so don't be shy, you can do it with just a few materials and a little time. Check out the tutorial!

Happy Weekend, everyone! I am soon leaving to pick up my 15 month old grandson for a sleepover! Tomorrow his Mommy and Daddy will pick him up and everyone else will come for food and fun here, a very nice weekend. I want to share these two 8" x 10" prints that you can download and frame to brighten a little corner of your home. Also, remember that the cutest little Mr. Frog Mini Pocketbook Kid's Activity Book project will be posted on Monday, I have had a lot of fun putting it together and hope you will also!

Hello my sweet Maddalee Friends! I have had so much fun with the little "Pocketbook" projects lately, new ideas keep me busy! This adorable little book will be posted on Monday. The printables and tutorial will be quite easy, pockets for little activities on the inside and more! Be sure to subscribe in the upper right column to Maddalee, as subscribers will have two days to request the project at no charge. I love showing a little love to my subscription members!

Do you all remember this past Maddalee project? It would be the sweetest and inexpensive gift for Mother's Day!
I have always loved books, from back in the day when I was an art major at Illinois Wesleyan University, concentrating on printmaking. I still do and have been thinking about starting this series of mini journals in a box or a "Book in a Box" series. I'm delighted to have the first design ready to go! See the full tutorial.

Happy Monday and hopefully a beautiful spring day for you, my Maddalee friends! If any of you made the Recipe Journal and Gift Tag Set (As seen here.) posted a while ago, you may have an extra Moleskine journal left to play with. If not, they are quite inexpensive if used for gifts, (12.95 plus shipping for a set of two.) The Moleskine info and link are below.
My daughter came across a few journals I made in sixth and seventh grade and had quite forgotten about, 40ish years ago! They are falling apart and faded, but I could still see how my style clearly is my style and hasn't changed all that much over these many past years. I have a very fun publishing project in the works and was inspired by these old and tattered pieces while pulling materials together for the publisher this weekend. I thought it would be fun to share a project with all of you and rather than making it a complicated cutting design, as some recent projects here at Maddalee have been, I would simplify the design as many of us are very busy, but still love our pretty things! Wouldn't this little journal and the bookmarks be the most fun to make for a preteen or teenage girl's sleepover, a ladies' book party or whatever kind of party might be planned? I think these would also be adorably fun for a bride and bridesmaid party or bridal shower as party favors, don't you agree?
