I have been making these journals and sketchbooks out of mostly damaged (water damage, scribbled on and ripped pages, etc) books and here is my latest one. It is one of my favorites so far. What do you think?








Oh, yeah. There is a little pocket in the back to store odds and ends. : )

Your journal is just wonderful.

I have the best memories of my, now grown, son sitting on a stool in the kitchen while I cooked dinner, reading to me; "lit tle bear, lit tle bear." If I close my eyes I can almost hear that sweet 4 year old voice.  Thanks for the memory.

The words you speak to others are like medicine; they can bring either life or death depending upon how you dispense them.

Nothing fancy, really, I just used coptic binding to remake this book. From trying to learn coptic binding on my own, I found it extremely confusing as a tutorial with images. I recommend doing a youtube search for coptic binding if you are interested- that is what I did and it helped a lot. If you have questions though, feel free to PM me. Glad you like it though!  Grin
