Journal No. 3

I'm still in Full Tilt Boogie mode.

If you know me well then you know that this class has to be really good, because I haven't walked away from it with the projects only half completed.
I just keep steaming forward not wanting to stop.

This is part one of week 3/journal 3.
This was another book I had been saving for a specific project...
a writing journal.

Though I'm an avid list maker, I've never been one to keep a journal for my inner most thoughts and feelings.
(Which may partly be the cause of what my Farmboy likes to call my "solar flares" of emotion.)
So I had been saving this book for this purpose and it seemed like just the right time to create it.

The reason I wanted to use this specific book for my writing journal is because it is white.
Lovely, clean, soothing white.
And lord knows, if I'm going to dump the whirlwind of thought and emotion from my heart and head into this book, I'm going to need a little soothing and surrounding calm as I do it.
So again, with that in mind, I chose the fabric (aqua and chocolate brown) and the papers inside (all soft colored scrapbook papers) for the same reason.

The binding stitch for this journal is really great.
And I figured out a way to dress it up a bit with some itty bitty buttons.

So very happy with it.

While I'm talking of Mary Ann, it would be really great of you if you could send a warm thought and/or prayer her way, as she has recently lost her beloved Buck Moss.
Maybe even leave a comforting note for her over at her place if you have the time.
Thank you.
