New York Love

So I'm back from glorious, snowy New York!  I was very sad to leave since my cousin and I had a great time finding Irish pubs and seeing the sights.  The hotel room had a beautiful view of Times Square and Central Park covered in snow is so beautiful.  It hasn't been the best of return weeks either, although I did miss my pets, husband and warm weather.  I'm recovering from a horrid stomach bug and sadly we just lost my grandmother yesterday, a day after her 84th birthday.  She was a wonderful woman and we will all really miss her.  I'm horridly behind on all the art journal prompts from the Journal 52 project as well as laundry.  I am now prepping some pieces and parts for a swap I'm doing so I'll hopefully have something new to show you with those soon.
In the meantime here are the photos as promised of the gifts I made for my cousin.  I made her a photo album for her to put pictures from our trip in.  I used a photo I took a little over a year ago when Truman and I went to New York on the cover.  There were 20 pages!  I couldn't load all the pictures so I just chose a few of my favorites.  I also made her a wine cork keychain (inspired by my sisters gift to me).  She likes navy blue, wine, and football so I tried to incorporate it all.  Lastly I'm including a few photos from the trip just so you can have a peek ;-)  Enjoy this Valentines Day and your weekend!
