I have a friend who loves airplanes. So, last year, about this time, I made her a set of greeting cards with planes on them. They were fun to make. For me it was a new design, they were fun to color, and the square shape was a great, new challenge. I hope she enjoys using them as much as I enjoyed making them. 🙂

This is my first Midori. Or faux-dori. I made it out of denim and a piece of canvas. It is not that is a vegan, or opposed to leather or anything. I am just cheap. 😉 At $60- 80 for a real one, I wanted to make sure I liked it, and it would work for me… after all, the pages looked like they were a funny shape (they are talk and thin). What did I really have to write down? And did I REALLY need another place to write down dates and appointments? After all, since we shut down the business, and I am more or less a housewife, the appointments are a lot fewer… Anyhow, I have completely fallen in love. I use it for doodling, sketching, making lists, journaling, class notes for random classes I am taking, and any thought that runs through my head. I even have random quotes and song lyrics.
As I said, it is just some old blue jeans glued to some canvas paper. The canvas makes it a bit sturdier. I left the seam for some interest. The inserts are 2 lined and 1 blank. All of which are home-made. I also have a couple dashboards, and a 6-pocket folder as seen on pocket full of vintage. The metal strip on the front is a Tim Holtz and it says ‘capture life’s moments’. When I saw it I knew it was perfect for this, and I fell in love. The beads on the bottom are homemade. 1 big flat one, surrounded by a few smaller paper beads to hold it on.
Have I said how much I love it yet? 😉 So much so that I have a real leather Raydori on the way… I am definite a convert! 😉
PS- those new (to me) Frixion pens are my new absolute favorite! I almost always have one in my hand, and they are in almost every room in my home… maybe I should buy stock? 😉
This is one of my favorite designs… I am not sure if I had blogged it before, but it definitely deserves a mention… It is a design I found on OWH . I like it for men, women or children, depending on the pattern paper used. And it makes a wonderful blank card, as I don’t feel it needs anything else.
PS- Stay tuned! this weekend I am hoping to get a few more things added to my For Sale tab (on top). In the next couple weeks, I plan on restocking my beads, ACEO’s, Midori inserts, and maybe some greeting cards (and I am toying with the idea of including some bookmarks). Depending how they do here, I may also look into restocking my Etsy Store…
So, I realized today I never showed what my Christmas Cards looked like… I was trying to keep it a super sekrt spise! My inspiration was taken from Seongsook.@ Seongsook’s Creations. 🙂
