I finally completed the custom order journal. I had a few hiccups but manage to resolve with some re-stitching and re-binding.
A Thanksgiving journal or Gratitude journal. I love the idea that my customer has for this little book. She has a tradition whereby every year on Thanksgiving day, her family will list down in a Thanksgiving journal all the things that they are grateful for. Isn't that the best?! I love it!!
It was a joy making this journal and knowing how it will be used and cherished in years to come. This gives me the pleasure of doing what I love - making journals.
A little update on the garden. I've planted some flowers, herbs and vegetables in random. There are some strawberries and herbs which are closest to the deck so I can reach them easily. Flowers in between and some veggies in the middle and I made a foot path using bricks. That way I can water them easily and not get my boots all too dirty.
That's in the morning where I decided what goes where, next I mixed the earth with some compost and manure before placing them in their new home.
By evening all is done. My first attempt in gardening here so I only have a few vegetables - kale, cabbage and broccoli. I still have room for more, maybe I'll get some more seedlings from the local market this weekend.
Meanwhile, right outside my studio window, the first rose is blooming! So exciting to see this! It's beautiful! I find myself looking forward to checking on it every morning.
Spring is just around the corner.
