Wanting to make my niece something special. I decided to try something that I've always wanted to do. This is my first stitch binding journal with a leather cover. I gave her some plain white paper and pattern papers from my scrapbook paper stock. Her favorite colors are red and black, so she got red and black beads on the end of the book tie. I'm mailing it tonight and she should get it tomorrow... I hope. If not she'll have to wait till after the holiday to get it.
I really like the journal and am ready to tackle more of them. I'm already making another one for my oldest daughter's birthday... coming up this Sunday. Her birthday gift request was a scrapbook of her. So I will be adding pages of her and pages for her to write in. Thinking about adding some envelope pages as well and tags here and there. So many thoughts come to mind after I make my first item.
Among various paper crafts, I also really enjoy making jewelry. As I create, I will post my creations for all to see. I'm still getting the hang of this blog... it's my first and there's so many option for this and that.
