It's a dear friend's birthday this week and I decided to make her something. I know she likes these journals, she has purchased them from me to give as gifts. My thought....Why not make her one she can keep. How many times do we purchase something for someone else, and would love to have one for ourselves. I do it all the time. I talk myself out of spending the money on myself. We all deserve to treat ourselves once in a while. So I am going to treat her!
A wonderful journal that she can keep notes in. I know it will go wonderfully with her kitchen decor. I made a matching gift bag.I also made the clip to be used as a page marker. I saw this idea in the Somerset Life magazine and love it. I will post the photos and show you the idea next week.
My favorite embellishments are buttons and ribbons. What do you love to use?
The inside has a poem about journals. Here's the page marker....
Next time you have someone special to buy a gift for, think about making something. I know when I receive a gift that was created for me it is a treasure. If you wnat handmade and just don't have the time, go over to the Sassy Apron Shop and see all her wonderful aprons just in time for Valentine's Day. What a wonderful gift they would be. Speaking of journals, I visited "My Vintage Studio's "Blog today. She has created some wonderful journals. She's having a give away. Head on over and check it out.
