I'm a Peace Corps volunteer in Bulgaria and will be spending Christmas with my host family, who I lived with for 3 months during training. I have pretty much no money, so I was happy when I found these plain black journal/appointment books  Huh at a 1 lev store. They are from 2008, but it only says that on the first page, which I ripped out, and each page has a space at the top to write the current date. I painted their names on the front covers with cheapo acrylics and the only paintbrush I could find, which fell apart on me as I was using it! I'm not really very good at painting, but I think they'll like them! They're like 8x10 I suppose?


From L to R: For my host sister Simona (her nickname is Moni), my other sister Radostina (nickname Radi), and my mom Emilia. I used the Cyrillic alphabet for their names; So "Moni" looks like "Mohu" but trust me, it's Moni.


Just Moni's. It's hard to tell, but I painted over it with glittery nail polish to help protect the acrylic paint.



This is what I started with~I could never quite get that stupid silver feather covered!:
