I haven't got to work a whole lot on my journal b/c it has been a hectic time for me. But I've been thinking about it a lot, and even talking with friends about the topic of Freedom, so I know I will be ready this week when I have more time.
goatgoddess - thanks for the tip about google images - I checked it out and realized that I'm going to have a lot of fun with that.
Samantha- Happy Birthday! That's great that you had a sweet sixteen b-day party!
Juniperthimble - congrats on your baby coming! I think that spring is a great time for babies.
When I went to my parent's last weekend I took picutures of books that I've made for my mom in the past.
I made a book for my mom and then put inside poems that I have written.
I used a coptic stich.
To remember our trip to Prince Edward Island I made a book for my mom that used a map of the island as a cover.
This was for my mom's 50th birthday.
The last one is a journal I made for a friend for Christmas. She wanted something that she could write in. I haven't found out how to have lined paper that you can fold in half and sew, so I had to use graph paper. I covered the different signatures with different papers, including old calendar pages.
It is so cool to see what people have been doing. I 'm going to post my pictures when I get the pictures the right size. One neat thing to see is the variety in the type of journals. The bag is such a good idea!
