Joy’s Very Early Birthday Present

I saw these very cool little notebooks in Hobby Lobby a month or so ago and was just itching to get one and cover it with my usual junkola. But I really didn’t have a use for them, so I stratigically waited until I had a 40% off coupon to buy the stuff. I’ve had it mostly finished for about two weeks now but I still didn’t know what I was going to do with it. After talking to my sister-in-law, Joy, this afternoon, I have put the finishing touches on it and I am sending it to her for her birthday.

So Happy Birthday, Joy! Here’s a sneak peek of your gift that will come with Sam’s birthday present (after I finish making it too!).

If you have anything that you’d like to be covered with my usual brand of junkola, just send it on over!

    That’s lovely!

    I love to do this sort of stuff, but making it *useful* is so difficult; I think you’ve achieved a great blend of beauty and utility.

    This notebook is so lovely. You know that you will now need to make one for your mother-in-law.

    Don’t you have a really nice red leather day planner? I’ll totally trade you for one of these! 🙂

    If I have a red leather day planner, I don’t know where it is. Do you remember me having one? I know I am gettin old, but I don’t remember this.

    Um, maybe I’m remembering my other mother-in-law? oh well…

    And just what other mother-in-law is that?
    I will be looking to see if I have one and just don’t remember. It may be like the medical records I kept on my sons and can’t find since I re-organized everything to accomodate what I got from Montgomery.
