Journals

To give myself a break from painting, I went off into another direction. I really enjoy making these little books. For some time now, I've thought about keeping a stitching journal. How I wish that I would have started one a long, long time ago. I like keeping lists of things I have, things I need, and so on. I'll be offering these and others for sale eventually.
Speaking of my Etsy shop, some of you have asked when it will be open. The truth is, I'm not sure. But, I'm working on it. Thanks for your suggestions and comments. It seems that the you are all bird crazy, which is fine with me. I am, too.

Here's the first batch:

This one is made using some artwork that I did awhile ago.
My husband would say that it descibes me to a tee.

Isn't she the sweetest fairy?

Enough said...aren't we all?

They're beautiful. I really like them all! I have a stitching journal but I haven't been good at keeping up with it--started it ages ago. :)

I love them all. I have been wanting to keep a stitching journal forever and decided this year I will really try hard at it. Yours are so cool. Great job!

These are so beautiful...do you do just the covers? Is this decoupage? I'm a journaler/writer...which sometimes gets in the way of my stitching (and vice versa). I have too many interests...do you have this problem, too???
