Journals I’ve Made

I started making journals in November, 2018, and quickly became hooked on the craft. Making use of my long-held loves of fabric and sewing, as well as gaining an outlet for my many thousands of photographs, and sharpening my brain by learning paper manipulation and digital design techniques… well, there you go. Retirement (and freedom) […]

It has a flexible, soft cover of gorgeous upholstery fabric layered over stiffener. The journal measures 9″ x 6″, and has two signatures with a total of 72 pages […]

Blue Ribbons at the Fair!

In an earlier post I mentioned the spontaneous idea I had of entering two of my Junk Journals into the Los Angeles County Fair. Like a very excited child who simply can’t wait, I went to the Fair on Opening Day to see my entries. There they were, under a glass case alongside many other […]

Los Angeles County Fair Entries

While those dresses were custom-order and therefore not feasible entry material, the […]

Junk Journals Photo Shoot

I thought I’d do a “photo shoot” of all the Junk Journals I’ve made to date. I tell you, though, those journals weren’t very cooperative, shoving and pushing, knocking each other over, causing so much frustration I nearly gave up. Trying one last time, I finally got very strict and was able to get this […]

A Few Junk Journal Tags I Made Today

I’ve been thoroughly engrossed in making Junk Journals. My sister-in-law is to blame, actually, for getting me started on this hobby. I’ve always done lots of sewing, but never worked with paper, or stamping, or scrapbooking, etc. I must admit I’ve been having so much fun making these journals, using junk mail, photographs, other papers, […]

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
