So it was maybe the 18th or so and my mom and I were talking about our laziness because we didn't have a tree up yet. We came to the conclusion that it wouldn't be a huge deal if we just didn't put one up at all.
Then I was surfing around Craftster and saw LittleGirl's post on her invisible tree. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=399491.0 I thought it was a fabulous idea and knew that when I moved out this would be my "tree" because it would be too weird for my parents although I proposed the idea to them anyway. Like I thought, they didn't seem to excited about the idea.
Then a few days ago I was out with a friend and when I came home my parents had crafted an un-tree Christmas tree for me!
They made it out of a tomato cage, lights, and garland.
I received from fabricfriend a while ago and it's been raining cats and dogs here since then. Today's the first day it ISN'T raining so I took the opportunity to take some pics of my wonderful journal she made for me!
The journal cover and a close up of the beautiful paper.
The inside cover. She said she is new to the art of binding but she did a FABULOUS job on this binding!
My theme was travel. Lots of room to write about my adventures.
Some details. I don't want to hog the thread, but I love these pages!
This might be my favorite page! I love the texture. I have no idea what it is though.
Thanks for swapping with me! I love my book and I had a lot of fun making yours!
