right on the button



i enjoy creating so many different things that it seems my greatest challenge these days is trying to find projects that combine all of my loves.......my love of paper, my love of fabric, my love of sewing, my love, my love.....


and sometimes i wonder if that's why i enjoy creating journals so much. i get to tear paper, slop some glue around, attach eyelets to the covers, and my most favorite part.....sew it all together....


and every once in a while i add a trinket or two.....
so usually when i'm done,
i feel like maybe i've hit my challenge
right on the button!

I can definitely relate to your description of what it feels like when you're in the process of making something. And what you've made using bold, contrasting colors pops, especially the shiny black buttons.
