Hi everyone. Hope your week is going well.
Last week I started a couple of indoor cleaning projects. For one I decided it was time to do at least a partial book purge and make some room on my bookshelves. It didn't matter if I completely finished or not, because purging books is something that never ends (mainly because I love books). For the second project, I went through some old photos. I started both because I couldn't find something I was looking for, a book I wanted (and knew I had) and the photos I wanted for an art project.
I must admit I have several very unorganized plastic bins of photos and old art projects stacked in the attic. I did eventually find the photos I wanted, and I cleaned the book shelves enough to find the book I wanted. But while I was looking for the photos, I came across a bin with some journals that I had forgotten I had made. It was an exciting find, and I spent quite a bit of time going through them all. I thought today and on occasion in the future I would share a few with you.
The first journal I'm sharing is a cloth one I made in 2005 after coming home from a week long trip to Italy. I guess you could say it my memory book of the trip.
Of course now that I have some room on my bookshelves, I am going to try to put these journals on my shelves (so much for the room) so I won't forget I have them in the future. Plus they've given me some inspiration and make me want to sew some new journals.
Thanks for visiting.
