a beautiful tribute. I wish I could touch it.

What a beautiful project and gift for your sister - I've made a couple of books for my mother in this vein (I'm so blessed that she is still with us) - love that you are including snippets of your Mom's clothing and samples of her handwriting - wonderful idea - I'm sure you're sister will feel the love that you have put into this priceless gift - Reva (Los Angeles)


After viewing the picture of you and your mother I can really see how much your granddaughters look like you!!!Wow!! I love the book. Your sister is going to cherish it.

To say that is a beautiful gift just doesn't do it justice, Katie. Your sister will ADORE it, I'm sure. How very special... xoxo, Shari

It's beautiful, what a generous, thoughtful gift. And what a great idea to preserve the family history. Love the new pictures of you and your family. Oh, that sweet baby face you were born with. Miss you so much. xo

i bet it will be a treasure for her. you are a good sister to make this for her. it is surely a beautiful creation.


this style is fresh and non vintage and intriguing. Yay for a new look book, makes it so not precious and touchable...

katie your face still holds all of that hope and beautiful yearning. and your book.......the textures/fabric/stitching/the whole thing.. is evocative. deliver with kleenex. i predict your sister will be very moved when she opens it up and steps inside.


Your sister will treasure this forever. And your memories will always be with you. I miss my mother too... Roxanne

a truly lovely gift for your sister and a timely reminder for me. See, you just never know who you will touch when you post. My Mom is still with me and I often get impatient and irritated with her. Thanks for the course correction.


Stunning Katie. Your grandaughter looks just like you as a child - how lovely. By giving your sister just an amazing book full of memories - she will "go back home" as i am sure you are whilst preparing it. It can be so emotional while preparing such a book, I know.
Love it


What a lovely book and tribute to your mom. A truly beautiful and special gift...


Oh KAtie, If only I had thought to do this with some of my grandmothers things or my mother-in-laws. Such a wonderful little treasure. I must go wipe my eyes.


wow, this is so so so wonderful, a book full of memories and love...your sister is truly a lucky one!!xox
