All finished in the same day! Whew! A personal record for me. I think I can relax until after Thanksgiving now.

Puppy with a scarf journal

I just finished this custom order for a girl who loves dogs. I have a phobia of dogs actually, because I was chased off a small cliff as a kid by a Doberman, which resulted in a broken elbow. Anyway...I am slowly overcoming the fear and am 90% ready to get a dog for my kids. I think this little dude is the coolest!

Funktastic Journal

Very fun to look at and hold, sorta hard to describe. I liked this fabric and wanted to make a book out of it, but I'm not sure what it reminds me of...if you have any ideas let me know. I've been eating too much sugar today, so maybe after the effects wear off I'll be more smarterer. yeah...

Herb Journal

For a gardener, perhaps. I used textured dark blue cardstock for the end pages that look really cool on the spine with flecks of red here and there. It took forever to make because I was also watching Netflix episodes of Chuck while stitching it together. This journal is way fun to hold. Really mellow fabric and understated grooviness.

Flaming guitar journal

I used sparkling red felt for the flames on this guitar, unfortunately they kinda got hidden behind the strings. Custom made for a girl guitarist. :)
