January Journal


We are well into January already, but I still wanted to post what I have been working on.

This little book is hand made and hand bound. Each page was distressed and stamped before sewing together into a book. I had so much fun making it, but needless to say, I think January will be well done before I even get to use it for anything! Right now I don't have a snapshot of the inside of the book, but it has pages for every day of the month, plus some other items sewn in for notes/observations, birthdays and important dates, etc.

It was supposed to be a gift....one for each month, with the final resulting gift being a giant series of books....but alas, I don't think I have the time to complete something of this magnitude unless I start on it NOW for NEXT year (which, by the way, I've decided to do). So, stay tuned, because maybe sometime in November of this year, I'll show you the entire creation I finish! And I already have a recipient in mind. It is sort of fun to know that in January, I've already gotten at least one Christmas present planned!

Oh...I know...I'm keeping in mind that this is the positive spin! I realize the fact that I didn't think of this or plan or have enough time THIS YEAR until it was too late!

For You My Friend

Dang is it ever hot, right?
Well, I spend some time crafting indoors close to the air conditioner vents.
And this little box is what I came up with.  Along with the gift inside!

Decorated and the final touch...that wonderful Pinque Peacock Stick Pin.

It matched PERFECTLY.
Anyway, hope you like it.
My friend did (and she didn't assault the box when I gave it to her!)
Have a super Saturday.
Drink lots of water....cuz if you spend anytime outdoors, it just evaporates right out of you!

Spooky Eyeballs

Hello, everyone.  Over the weekend, I made this 12 x 12 inch printable page.  I will add another version later this week, that will have smaller and more numerous eyeballs!

To save at the original version size, click on the image and then click again to zoom in.  Then you can save and print it!

Halloween Scrapbooking Sheets

I created these this morning....just in time for making a few treats before the spooks come calling tomorrow night!
Enjoy.
