Isn't it great to create-

I was lucky enough to win over at my BBF (best blog friend) Sue's blog. I won a PERFECT for me necklace...

and the way I wear it:

AND WAIT THERE"S MORE... I won a copy of her beautiful book.  Just this little picture and size does not due it justice.  It is an inspiring book of her poetry with interesting and artistic photos of 'real' people. 
I am totally in love with both prizes, Thank you Sue...
and since I am inspired to create,This is the project I am currently working on.  Nana's Quiet Book.  YEARS ago (like maybe 2004? 2003?) my friend and I were visiting the Sunset Ward in San Francisco (visiting the Young Women..) and the women in Relief Society were taking orders for a unique quiet book.  One of the ladies had designed this, she then had it printed on big sheets of felt AND THEN had put kits together of all the misc things (snaps, zippers, ribbons).  They were gracious enough to let us in on the deal... I knew that someday my girls would be grown and have babies... and I would be a Nana, how fun it would be to have a Special Nana Quiet book: 
Velcro skyline & Snap on Seals
 Shopping, nuff said
 Chocolate bar&snap on grapes
 button flowers and ferry ride
 lace upskates & cable car zipper
 velcro CLOUDS and finger dragon
fuzzy bear and magnetic fish
 racing boats
