Our back door neighbor has a new temporary pet. Her twin brother died and the mama would not nurse her, so our neighbors stepped in to bottle feed her. She belongs to our neighbor's son. She's 41 days old and and now weighs 17 pounds.

I finished another journal.
This one has a mermaid theme. And in the chain decoration on the spine is a mermaid bracelet I made. So you get a journal and a bracelet.
This is just inside the front cover. There are 120 pages with many vintage mermaid images printed on them and lots of blank journaling pages. There are quotes about mermaids too. Watercolored paper, tea stained paper, vintage paper and a few envelope pockets.
I'm as happy with this one as I was the fairy journal, maybe more so. I think I have found my niche!
I'll be putting up a video where I flip through the pages in a day or two.

I made this book after seeing a very simple and small Advent calendar booklet that someone else made. And we all know I never do anything the simple way, lol.
A very old friend bought this immediately so it has an excellent home. She states it will be a family heirloom.

I spent the last week being sick with some kind of flu bug. We all got it including the guests we had staying with us. But we are all better now. So not much got done last week.
Here's my latest junk journal which will be for sale on Ebay.
No sewing on this one but I did use some ribbon, a button and an embellishment to create a closure for it.
I call it a rainbow journal. Lots of color and a few random words, lots of pockets with note cards.
I used almost every color in my paint box, mostly with a wet on wet technique.
Some pages are collages of various papers, some with white tissue paper over it all which is a really cool effect.
The best part of making these journals besides having fun, is I already have an order to fill for a special fairy journal.
