Sorry no cheeky titles today! I've been meaning to make one of these Leather journals since I saw this lovely lady's Etsy shop Pearls of Wisdom, incidentally she is also a Craftster too, check out her blog Classic Inez
I had a ton of Leather scraps in different bright colours so I couldn't resist making one of my own and I just happened to have a tiny scrap of this beautiful vintage ribbon to tie it with. Inside I have covered each batch of paper can't remember the correct term, after all I'm more at home with a sewing machine :) with a scrap from an Atlas that shows places I've lived or visited, these two facing pages just happened to have where I was born and where I live now which I thought was cool.
This was a fantastic idea and again I give full credit to Inez for this idea
I'm no journal maker, in fact I don't even journal but I am a total Bibliophile (that means I love books right? hoping it doesn't mean that I like to do rude things with books or something odd like that haha) I also love stationery and anything I can write notes in or on especialy if it's pretty so I'm so happy with how this turned out, perfect size for my handbag and completely out of recycled materials, go me!
Lastly the lovely reason why I am blogging at lunch time instead of first thing in the morning, my little fella baby Noah wants his cosy time with his Mama reading books on the sofa, and how could I turn down this cute little boy!
