the Last

I promise, promise, promise these are the last. In one final surge of journal-making energy, I crafted these covered journals last week...

Ric Rac Rabbits

The Last bright, scrappy conconctions.  These inspired by those adorable Ric Rac Rabbits, available at Fabricworm.

tagged!

Pressed and tagged after the mock-up with the help of my girlfriends.  Prices on the back of each tag.

Streamlined Typewriters

The Last typewriters, in Streamlined

Vintage Sweet with Madrona Road

...and in Vintage Sweet with Memoir text backgrounds from Madrona Road.  The text prints are already hard to find, but I just found the charcoal at Intrepid Thread and the white at Lark Cottons.

One with a very soft flannel back.  Yum.

Rosey

The Last "new idea" in my covered journal series, inspired by that photo.   Her name is Rosey.

totally pettable

Because journals want petting and so rarely need a wash.

wall art ready

The Last wall art piece.   I quite preferred it as a journal cover, actually.  Which may explain why it was the last...  I haven't shown you all the wall art I made.  Only my favorites got the spotlight.  I made a total of 10 pieces, which fit just so in this large box.

soooo many journals

I cannot tell you how nice it feels to have all my inventory pressed, de-linted, tagged and boxed.  Look at all those covered journals tidily stacked away!  I still have a few misc. things to do, but being "done" with the making phase is really welcome.  I'm definitely not one of those folks that makes a slew of things in the days before a show.  My mind's actually running ahead to other things.  To future schemes.

Ok, but there is a small part of me that's tempted to make one last journal cover.

  3. I LOVE the typewriter journals. If you have any left after the show, which I can't imagine you will, I'm going to have to treat myself at your Etsy store. They look wonderful!

  14. I love them all but the turquoise typewriter one is my favorite. I used to be a secretary way back when - a long long time ago (that's the beginning of a song). I just know you are so going to sell out. Have fun
    Lots of Love

  27. I could look at your journal covers every day - they are so clever. You have inspired me to make some myself and I am officially obsessed! I am planning to give them to my sisters, sisters-in-law, mom, daughters and anyone else I can think of for Christmas this year. Thanks for sharing! Best of luck this weekend! I think your things will fly out of the booth!
