Happy Journal

I upcycled a used book cover and recovered it with this cool polka dot/egg shapes brown fabric. The end pages are pink with polka dot trees fabric. There are six signatures of paper with the first pages of each being a brown flowery card stock. I used an off white linen waxed thread to sew it together. My camera really sucks- sorry. Anyway, fun to make and fun to handle.

French inspired journal

I upcycled a battered old 1960 Life World Library book about France. Five of the nine signatures of paper are hand torn pages from the book. The cover is off white flowery flannel and the end pages are brown flowery cotton fabric. Notice the Eiffel Tower on the front page. Very fun/soft to handle and lots of vintage pictures and history about France to see. :)

Holy cow!

I organized my craft corner! Believe me, this is a million times better than it was. And it only took eight hours! Not really, more like four...but still. After two years of chaos there is finally some order. Thank heavens.

Mushroom sculpture

Fabric and felt, together at last. I sewed some mini mushrooms into a little desk-top sculpture. All lovingly hand stitched, thus the wonkiness. :)
