i hope everyone has a good memorial day weekend, it looks like ours is going to be sunny-yea! maybe i can finally plant some pots this weekend, i am late and our pots are so bare!
i have listed this teachers journal in my etsy shop. mygosh, i tried to post this all day yesterday but kept getting that big red warning window about it not being safe to continue to sign in. geesh, i couldn't wait any longer, i hope some creeps didn't steal my info. "typepad help" kept trying to find the problem but said they could see nothing wrong. my site itself was fine, it was just the sign in page, oh well, my fingers are crossed- i hate those red warning windows- i always "run back to safety" well i do like to gamble.
anyway, for my etsy friends who would like to see more pictures and for everyone else who happens to find their way here - my new journal:
this journal was created from the covers from a 1909 "Champion Spelling Book", with o-wire binding and a little trinket cluster hanging from the title tag. this 4.75" X 7 3/8" "SchoolTime" Teachers Journal has 50+ pages which include a combination of vellum, lined writing, linen, sketch, and watercolor papers.

thank you for viewing this newest journal. i call it a teachers journal but of course, it may be used as a childs school keepsake or a travel journal for anyone who loves these wonderful papers.
i will be back tonight with another school journal if you would like to stop back by. i am trying my hardest to use all of my saved paper collections before i start gathering more, it takes almost too much self control, but i am doing pretty good so far...
