Another Handmade Monday has come around - brought to us by the wonderful Wendy at : http://www.1stuniquegifts.co.uk/blog/ and I thought I'd post a few pic's of what I have done so far of my "True Stories" Journal.
A while ago I signed up for "Shimelle's" online class entitled True Stories. It's a way of keeping a record or diary of things about you and your family and friends that can then be passed down the family when I am old (and decrepid!!)
Anyway with this class you were told to find a notebook and the first lesson was to decorate the cover - I love doing things like that so I just had to go out and find a blank sketchbook (Infact I got it from Sainsbury's for £3.) As you can see I had great fun decoratingit with stamps, old music papers and I made some paper roses again out of old music papers and threaded pearls, glass beads etc to make each one a "stamen". I'm pleased the way it turned out. Anyway the problem is making the inside pages look as good (which they don't - but it's fun anyway). I've posted the pic's of a few pages I've done so far - It's definately "work in progress, as it's going to take me forever to fill the book!

Also I thought I'd mention that it's my 1st blogoversary on Wednesday 30th March - take a look at my earlier post "FFFF" to see how I'm marking the occasion.
Have a Happy Handmade Monday!!
