Make A Journal!

Carole taught a video class on making a journal last year.
Here are the photos of my book.
I made it small... I just love the size!
I am using it to put notes from blogging friends in there...
that they send me in snail mail...
It's such a treat to get things in the mail from your blogging buddies!
I always save their little notes and so I'll have a representative number
in this little book and I can write my notes in the pages telling about them!
Carole is starting another class on April 2nd...
You can go here to sign up!

So sweet! I like your distressed looking fabrics. That Carole is quite the teacher-- I am just a poor student (I haven't quite finished mine yet...)

Your journal is looking lovely! Of course I knew it would be!
Don't forget to add your blogging friends email addresses and blog names- fab idea! x

Oh, I remember this class {i think Patty blogged about it}. And i was sorely tempted.

Love what you made and the purpose for which you will use it. Brilliant! As I am sorting through boxes and boxes of books in the basement, before I pass any of them along, thanks to you, i want to start a belated reading journal. I adored that idea of yours as well!

I like the idea of putting blogger cards and notes in there!!!

That is a beautiful journal, Linda Jo. I love the fabric and the birdies together. I will have to go check it out but I think now may not be the time.

That is such a lovely idea to keep notes from your blogging friends in there! They would be the ones who would appreciate it!!!

Hugs,
Suz
