Sometimes I need a reminder to stay present and focus on the moment – the here and now. This notebook cover is a great reminder!
These covers make me want to jot down ideas for my next stitched projects or collecting bits and baubles I have found.
I found some great journal cards to use in my paper collages. This is one of my favorites! Today was just such a day. I had plans for a perfectly productive day, instead there was napping and procrastinating via stitching on quilts for warmth – that was wonderful too – maybe more so since it nourished my soul.
The top left and bottom right notebook covers are great scrapbook papers I found. I embellished them with a bit of extra paper and stitching for added texture and interest.
This was my coffee table on Saturday night. It’s filled with thread drawn sketches, tiny portrait prints, journals and the supplies to finish them. I went to bed that night content – happy to have created a bit of chaos even if only on my coffee table.
Journals were taken to the GCVA gallery in Girdwood and the Dos Manos gallery in Anchorage. Each one has 2 included notebooks assembled from a variety of papers. When that notebook is full you can swap it out for a new notebook – the cover fits small Field Notes or Moleskine notebook.
In between all that creative chaos has been a quilt for warmth using these fabrics and several others. I’m looking forward to spending the day quilting.
