Duck Cloth Journal

Contrary to popular belief, Duck Cloth is not waterproof. But, it does make a really cool book cover. I'm planning on dying the elastic that is holding the book closed an orange color to match the binding thread. Long stitch binding is super fun. I used a dark grey felt on the inside for end pages, and sewed in six signatures of heavy blank drawing paper. One of a kind! :D

Hand bound journal

I've always loved the color combo of grey and orange. I think the grey background really makes the orange binding pop. Would be a great journal for a guy, or a non-girly girl. I also added a felt patch with an imitation of an orange slice. If you love oranges, like me, this would make a cool addition to your life. :)

I made a banner of felt hearts and another of paper hearts. We always have a banner of some sort or other hanging in the archway.
Nothing says 'I love you' like Oreo truffles. Add a crumbled whole package of Oreos to an 8oz pk of cream cheese, form into balls and chill for an hour, then dip in melted chocolate and chill again. Get ready for your face to melt off!! Plus, I wanted to show you my mug from Ceramica that I hand painted. It looks better on the other side, but, oh well. :)
