She was thrilled, maybe more because of the Steelers association than the notebook, but it worked well either way.

I found some pens that I thought were a neat idea; they had white ink and were able to write on black paper.  This was a great idea until I couldn't find a notebook/journal with black paper in it and I was really wanting to get this for a collection of gifts for my girlfriend.  So, like so many of us here (on Craftster) I decided that I would make one.  Here is one of the two finished products:



I started out with a folder designed to hold standard notebook paper with three holes, high grade black construction paper, and a decent yellow file folder.



I first cut the construction paper in half (to 6"x9") and then cut the folder with tabs to size to allow slight overhang from the black paper.  I used some Elmer's spray adhesive to glue the heavier yellow folder on the outside of the semi-constructed notebook.  I then trimmed it to 1/2" larger on all sides than the notebook.



I plan on finding some Steelers and Penguins stickers to include with the two journals.  I was hoping the inside would look a little bit nicer, but I'm overall happy with the short time-span that I had to put it together in addition to having never made something like this.

Very nice.  I saw this as I was getting ready to upload my journal project; now I'm all but too embarrassed.  =)  Mine pales entirely to this.

What I bought is called Sculpt-it! it says that it dries to a rigid very hard finish.  I think to be on the safe side I'll look into coating it like you suggested.  Thanks for the input.   Smiley

I want to make a pot for a bonsai tree using stones and cementing them together.  My plan is to use an air dry clay to line the inside of the pot so my soil doesn't run through openings when I water.  I haven't used clay for anything before and was wondering if there would be any issues having water (in the soil) in contact with it once it's dried, my second question is how will I know that it is completely dry?

I especially like the Peas.  Very nice work.

Very nice job.  I gave a try at chain mail a while back.  I'm sure having instruction in how to do it would have made it go a little quicker for me, but I think it's a craft that is just plain time consuming.  I want to say that what I was doing was called 2 in 1, it was the simplest thing I could find anyway.  Unfortunately I quit after completing the front half to a vest.   Sad

Again nice work, and keep it up.

I like it.  Dual purpose and good at both.   Smiley

Very nice.  I've been interested in bonsai for quite some time, so, anything resembling a small tree, live or otherwise, catches my attention.  Again, great job.
