WOYWW More Journals!

Hi all.  I'm so proud of myself!!  I've joined in with WOYWW for three weeks now.  I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things.  I haven't taken the time to research Blogger but I'll get there.

I'm joining in with What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.  Happy crafters share their desks and what they are working on.  To visit others,  join in or find out more detail about this go HERE

I got an invitation to participate in an Arts and Crafts Fair on April 27.  I'm really looking forward to this as I'm the only one (right now) that creates handmade journals.  I'll share more in a separate post.

Here's what my desk looks like:
The rose paper is Anna Griffin.  I love her papers and can usually find them on sale at JoAnn's.  I'll use that piece to cover the front of the gutted book.  The ink pad is my Go To Tim Holtz.  I use it around the edge of the papers to give them that vintage look.  There's a jar of postage stamps, mostly old.

 This is the roll cart closest to my desk.  It has my ink pads, binding supplies, punches and several drawers of paper scraps and vintage graph and music paper.  Someone asked about these carts a few weeks ago.  I got them from Amazon and love them.  They fit 12x12 paper pads and are pretty sturdy.  I didn't have them in the condo so they are new(ish).
Two journals that I've finished.  I'm happy with both of them.  I'll post  my process of reinforcing the old, brittle spines and sewing in the signature Friday.

As always, I'll visit those that end in the same number as me and those that visit me.  Please leave a comment so I know to come calling!  I hope you all have a wonderful day and have a great day crafting!!

Hi Kay. Great that you made it again! Love that paper! Hope the Fair goes well when the time comes. I'm supposed to do one on on 6th April but fear it's not been very well organised so am in two minds. Anne X #14 p

Love your journals Kay! They look great and I hope the fair goes well. That storage system is great, I bet you use it all the time. The little chest of drawers on my table is the best thing ever!!

Your journals look fabulous Kay, I will have to remember to pop back and take a closer look. I'm running late again & sleep pattern all over the place this week. The Arts & Craft's Fare sounds like lots of creative fun & discovery will be had by all.
