I made this journal for one of my partners in the Fungus Among Us Mushroom Swap. It's completely handmade - stained paper, machine embroidered cover, hand bound.

Tried to make the cover look full and padded, I think it turned out really nice. I know there's more than 120 pgs, all my family thought I was crazy drying them - they were scattered all over the lawn.  Cheesy

Truly fantastic! The cover is beautiful, and I LOVE that you stained and hand bound the pages.  Your partner must have jumped for joy!

Aww, thanks so much! It would have looked weird with just plain white paper, the stain gives the journal an extra homemade feel, plus it was just super fun to make.

My partner said she loved it when she opened it.  Cheesy

This is amazing!  I would be afraid to ever use it because it's so gorgeous.

Not to be scared at all! It's just paper and cloth, easy to remake and then make the next one more awesome!  Cheesy

Life is like a roller coaster, and I am not strapped in.
Maybe I should hold with care but my hands are busy in the air <3
