Look What I Made...Well with a Little Help.....







Will I ever learn how to get photos on here in the order i want them??? Oh well, today was a fun day. I went to my friend's Lotus' and made this little soapbox journal. She helped me with it and I actually made it without too much assistance. So the first pic is all of the paper I had left and brought home so I can make another one quickly before I forget what I did to make this one. Practice, Practice for me!!
The next pic is the sewn binding I did. Lotus didn't tell me the name of this stitch, but that's OK. The next pic is a shot of the signatures, 6 signatures of 8 pages each. And the last one is of the pages themselves. WOW!! This was so cool. I showed my husband when I got home, and all he could say, was, "Okkkkkk!" He does not understand anything I do at all when it comes to art.
Now I have to add a ton of ephemera to the pages and a couple more tabs, and it will be ready to go out in public for journaling. Yea!!!!

Sharon, I love it! I looked at Lotus's website and fell in love with this junk mail journal. I'm going to have to make one for myself.

Hey CB!
Great pics. I had a good time and I'm glad you're happy with what you've done. You did great!

I ended up covering mine, so I can tell the difference between the two. I'll take pix asap.

Talk to you later
Lotus

I absolutely love your journal! Lately I tend to look for materials I'd only end up recycling anyway. And making a journal from scratch is a brilliant feeling. Great work!
