Day 5- Air Plane Cards

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. 🙂

Green Midori

So, I made my first leather Midori.  I love the thick, textured leather.  But I made it passport size, not Field Note size.  I already have one this size I love made of denim, so I am thinking of selling this one…

Homemade Bluejean Midori

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? 😉

Pinwheel Blank Card

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.2013-12-29 16.23.18A

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…
