Baby Oh Baby Part 2
We are now just days away from a new baby arriving in my family. I am making a little book for my niece, who is the mother-to-be, for her to keep memories of those first precious months.

Would it be worth it to pay for a unit made from cardboard? Four years later, I can assure you that the answer is a resounding yes.Read the rest of this entry
Gear up for some Steampunk Field Notes
Combining rusty metal and intriguing bits and bots with vintage style paper to create blank books is one of my favorite pastimes.
That’s why I loved making this steampunk art journal.
Held together with a rusty chain and featuring all sorts of bits and bobs, I made this steampunk journal using Eileen’ Hull’s Wrapped Journal Die and Stamperia papers.Read the rest of this entry
