I made the book by taking apart my mom's old date book. I covered the dates and writing with whiteout (that whiteout is a wonder, I tell you) and I literally cut the book's binding off. Then, I stitched the book back up with thread. Even then, sewing! hahaha
Well, last week I was rummaging through a pile in the corner of the living room and voila, there it was, in all its adolescent glory! The little pieces of paper that I used to write notes on were still in the book too. You see, I used this book as a guide for writing my great American novel. I had lots of characters and used this book to keep track of how they changed over the years.
It was pretty much intact except for some stickers I put on the front that had fallen off. Well, I was thinking what an innocent time that was, and I decided I was going to make an Etsy shop called Flying Pixies (gee, I hope someone hasn't already taken that name). I want this shop to be lacy, button-y, cutesy, very home made pouches and purses. I thought it would be perfect to have it open for Mother's Day with hearts and such. I made the heart below for the new store (made with vintage floral fabric, by the way).
I'll let you know when I get the store in place!
