remains of the day journal

it's done! and here it is...my first "remains of the day journal" a la mary ann moss' class, which, by the way, i highly recommend if you like messy, scrappy, free, experimental fun!i'm so proud of this journal...and so happy i chose this particular project for my first "real" sewing project. mary ann is so encouraging, and SO just like me in the sewing department, i couldn't go wrong. even though i did. go wrong, that is. but what's great about this project is that "everything can be fixed" (to quote mary ann herself.)

i just loved every minute of it. so without further yadda yadda...the video...it's long, so thanks for bearing with me. the girls in the class will want to see every page. i know i did when they put their vids up. thanks for stopping by!

marvelous journal. love that you used soooo many envelopes. those long skinny kraft colored ones are cool. i can't begin to imagine what they might be for or be from. and your music was fun, too!

OOOOH . . . beautiful journal. I really love all the fabrics on your cover! I also love the crinkly sound when I go through all the inside pages. Nice job and can't wait to see how you fill up the inside!
