Love my new "oops" journal

I was making this journal without realising there was an empty space in the middle while cutting the fabric, usually I would align the flowers in the middle of the book when it is closed. So I repaired the mistake by adding little findings from my trinket box, a leftover tiny pieces of lace, some buttons and that's it, I have fallen in love with it and might keep this for myself.

Love the reminder as well - "make every moment count."

I've been writing more this year. It is good to have that regular practice again.

I am already half way through my journal and it is a good excuse to keep the above journal so I can continue when I finish with this one.

A friend gave me this dahlia, picked from her garden. It is just gorgeous! Adds a happy cheer in the studio.

Have a lovely weekend!


  1. Nice post and pictures. Lovely dahlia. xx

  2. Hello and good morning!
    I have just discovered your beautiful work whilst browsing on Etsy this morning. I was very touched by your ethos and the flow of your words. I have subscribed to your newsletter, but just wanted to let you know your heart touched someone today.
    Thank you for your beautiful craft and for sharing your insights. I live in Australia,where I was born, and am what many call a senior citizen. I wish you well in your endeavors, and hope one day, to purchase one of your stunning journals.
    Warm regards,


Thank you for your comment.
