'Victorian Romance' Writing Journal

Sometimes, during the creation process of a handmade journal I get attached to it. When this happens, I usually keep it for myself at least for a little while. This writing journal was a joy to make because I was able to work on it at my leisure between other projects. The cover is also a dream to look at so it was fun to return to it regularly.

Grungy Woodland Junk Journal

This is a junk journal I made recently to use up some leftover papers and assorted junk in my stash, which coordinate with one of my favourite collections, 'Woodland Wings'. I had been saving the red vintage cover for a special project and felt this was the perfect time to use it.

Gift Book With Embellished Tags

Hi everyone! I just want to share a gift idea I created for a swap I'm in at the Busy Bees Facebook group. I embellished some tags for my swap partner Jacky and created a tag holder using a small vintage book.  I'm happy to say that it has arrived safe and sound to its new home and that Jacky likes it very much!

Loaded {Handmade} Paper Bag<br> For A Swap

Last month, I participated in a swap over at the Vintage Junk Journals Facebook group. We were swapping a bag/envelope loaded with junk journal supplies. This is the one I created for my partner Brenda, using images from 'Purple Reign'. It was so much fun to make and stuff with goodies. It's a great way to use up your stash and send a gift to a crafty friend!
