I am embarrassingly far behind in getting this blog post done. The past few months have been busy (family reunions, road trips, Europe) with a lot of not so fun surprises thrown in (broken sewer pipes, major house repairs, broken elbows). I stepped back a lot from crafting and was just getting through the normal ebbs and flows of life. But I couldn't go any longer without showing off these amazing journals I received from my friend, Char DeRouin.
You might remember it was Char who made me the most wonderful Christmas Journal which you can see here. Now she has sent me spring journals which I had to share. You might want to grab your favorite drink, and sit back for lots of beautiful eye candy.
Window envelopes sewn directly into the journal. I need to try this sometime.
I'm always a sucker for ledger and map pages.
Look at that sewing!
A perfect spot for gardening notes!
And in the very back of the journal... wait for it....
A pocket full of vintage wallpaper scraps! I wish you could feel the textures in person. This just might be my favorite thing of all time.
It's too beautiful to use. I'm just going to have it on display like this all the time.
And then she went one step further and sent me a Traveler's Notebook size journal. I mean it's just absolutely brilliant!
Every page is a surprise and no two are alike.
And once again there is a little pocket in the back full of surprises. Thank you so much Char! Your work is truly amazing. Char has an Etsy Shop where she creates custom journals. There's also a link to it on my side bar. She is definitely worth checking out. Her work is absolutely inspiring.
