Domestic Goddess: Paper Princess

My older sister Linda is the original "crafter" in our family. She can do anything: sew, paint, draw -- but her favorite medium these days is paper. It's amazing what she can do with paper: tags, bags, wrap, scrap... One of my favorite creations is her journals (above).

As someone who likes to write -- and NEEDS to write -- a pretty journal makes it an even more inviting daily event. Her journals are embellished in the most beautiful papers, and she covers all covers: front, back and insides. Sometimes they seem almost too pretty to write in. I have yet to break this one in. But once I get going, they really make journalling a joy.

And even if you're not a "Dear Diary" kind of gal, her journals are perfect for list-making, doodling -- even homework! Look for Linda's lovely journals alongside my creations at my indoor shows (Gifts for Yule and Spring Fling). Or let me know if you would like one sooner. She's more than happy to do custom orders.

I, too, love the journals - & I don't have a crative bone in my body. I use them for lists, as training journals, just about anything.....
