life



we had a little bit of rain and a whole lot of cold over the weekend...perfect weather for putting together some new journals!  for this book, i took my cue from the "life" illustration (inset on the front cover), taken from a favorite piece of paper in my beloved stash.  the inside is filled with 70 lb. writing paper and decorative type-font-themed papers hug each signature.  you can see more photos of this journal here!

Lori, once again you've made a beautiful piece. I love the texture of the cover, and the way you wrapped the edges of the paper in the spine. So much attention to subtle detail.

We have a TON of rain last weekend. The backyard is saturated - I took the dog out to pee yesterday and sank up to my ankles! ICK.

Happy Day...

Nice. I saw someone make a journal like this on tv. Lots of steps. Very nice.

The new Google Friend Connection is really cool. I like it.

I love the papers added to this one. Well done dear friend, yet again.

Very nice! Another fine piece for your shop--I do think you may be undervaluing your hard work a bit though!

Great journal Lori! You always create lovely pieces. It's raining here is San Francisco too. I love the rain. It always makes me want to create.

Hugs,
Lisa :)
