Pretty Journals

Now that Christmas is over I can show you some of the gifts I made to give away this year, like these two pretty journals for two pretty ladies I know.

Mod Podge, DIY Journals


 The truth is I had to make these.  While I was out Christmas shopping I picked up a pad of gorgeous paper for myself from the bargain bin.  To pay penance I decided to use some of it to make a gift.



The pink one was given to my sister, who's had a very stressful year.  I added the bookmark just for her~


I love the papers on the other one too.  They almost look like fabric!


Each journal got lots of pretty tabs and pockets inside.


Did you pick up anything for yourself while you were out buying for others?  Or am I the only one who as a bad girl?  Leave a comment~

PS...Happy Boxing Day!

There is nothing like a pretty journal to make your day. You did a wonderful job personalizing these. I will have to keep this project in mind for future gift giving.

Yes, I was a very bad girl when I was Christmas shopping! I always make all my own gifts for everyone, so while buying yarn at WallyWorld, I bought myself a rocker-recliner! I live in a Personal Care Home and needed a chair, sooooo!!!!!
Your journals are so beautiful! I'm a book person, large or small for everything!

These are lovely. Well done too. I love anything with beautiful flowery type fabrics or paper. Feminine is a treat after years of us not supposing to like it. Ive spoiled myself by doing little but resting. Trying hard not to go into a store...but my gift cards are crying out for use. I'm hoping to buy a "cricket" for quilting template usage.
