Quilted Spiral Notebook Cover

It does seem to me a little silly to spend so
much on that "perfect" journal when it's really
what you write in it that makes it special. 
However, I am just as much a sucker for a
beautiful writing book as the next person.

Recently, I found myself looking at a large
selection of journals...yet, nothing looked special.
Nothing appeared inspiring.
 (I know--as if a special book is all it will take to create/write great things!).

So, I did what any crafter does when 
she can't find what she wants. 
I made it.  

The quilted cover protects and hides a simple
10-cent spiral notebook. 
Ponytail holder/button combo keeps
everything tightly inside.

Pockets on each "sleeve" can hold pens,
extra papers, pictures, receipts, etc.
This first one is pretty simple...
but it has me thinking.

Yup, looks great! I will need to get something sorted out for my Sewing Summit and Fat Quarterly Retreat journals, but they're ages away yet (who bets it's a week before the FQ one before I remember again?!)

That is so pretty. You are so right, when a crafter can't find something - She makes it! So funny!
Just followed you :)
Would love a follow back.

I love your notebook and when I see your Bible open next to it, I learn a lot more about you as a person! I am now following you and like what I see!! I'm even following you via email that way I won't forget. I only do that for those blogs I know I will read on a regular basis. BTW, it seems we have a love of snow. Where do you live? I am originally from West Virginia where I had lots of snow growing up. I now live in Alabama, the heart of Dixie, where even a snowflake causes dire panic. I am so in love of snow and miss it SEW much!! Enjoy some snow for me when you have it.
