It's a dear little journal made entirely of items one would ordinarily throw away, except maybe for the photographs.
Here's a view of the back as well ( recognize the daffodils next to the driveway ? Not much longer now until they're in bloom.)
And here is a bonus view inside - all recycled papers .The endpapers are some crazy kiddie art. The latter was a sort of emergency solution to a warping problem. I knew that gluing a photograph to one side of a piece of cardboard would cause warping , I didn't realize it would be quite so severe and needed a quick fix, so R's drawing pad had to come to the rescue.
The journal is amazingly functional and sturdy, even though it's just an experiment, and I can't wait to make another one, this time with a little more planning ahead of time. If you want one, raise your hand !
