What a great idea! I used to write in journals all the time. That reminds me - burn those those before anyone finds them. This gives me a little incentive to start writing again.



It's fantastic!! Wow, I'm impressed! I especially love the glittery bits and the bookmark is wonderful!! I feel quite inspired now myself!
Hope your hair goes well- I love getting my hair done too, don't you find that for some reason it's blissful to let someone else wash it when you've got long hair?
Have a wonderful day Allison!! xx


I too am inspired by your journal, I think I would enjoy making one but know that I wouldn't keep up any entries!


What a wonderful journal you created! I am inspired and might just try one myself!

Love the bookmark too.

Have fun getting your hair cut...Thanks for stopping by my blog!


I invite you to visit my blog:)


Its really lovely! I like how all of the pieces came together so well.

Its starting to feel like fall around here too--yay! Crisp breezes & perfect blue skies--heaven!

Your journal is very special. I love the little girl...she looks kind of "up to no good." I really like to use the composition books for journals. I've sewn book covers for them in the past...I find myself more comfortable using fabrics than paper.


Awsome job! Very pretty.I would to write in it now lol. Im sure you will enjoy it very much.


I love it!! Its adorable. I love that little girl too. You did a wonderful job. I only get coffee at my salon. Yours sounds much better.
Can't wait to see what you did with your antiques. I got some yesterday at a backyard sale.
I love your blog!

The bookmark is such a beautiful little gem of artistry! It is really lovely. The journal is as well, but I can't get over the piece of perfection that is the bookmark! Great work! Cindy at Rosehaven Cottage


Allison- I love the journal and tag book mark, I have been so inspired lately to create. There is nothing better than getting your hair done. I got a much needed cut Friday. I felt so good when I was done. I have so much hair and it grows like those horrible weeds in my yard. Can't wait to see your finished products with your new finds. I found a couple thins today. Next week I am going to a family wedding in Illinois. I am checking out a warehouse full of antiques from Europe. Check out her site
on my site. She was featured in Country Living and
has beautiful taste.


Hi Allison,

The journal looks so pretty. I hope you enjoy your hair appointment, I always feel better after having my hair done.

Love Sarah x


Ooh, I am jealous of your talent AND your fall weather! Have a great weekend!!


Hi Alison,
I think its a great idea to get creative in this way, I too have seen a lot on notebooks at the moment. I hope you had fun crafting this lovely book, It looks so very elegant.....

Very pretty! I want to be crafty too, but I never attempt it... this looks like a project I just might tackle...


Your journal is beautiful and inspires me to make one! Can't wait to see what you have done with your garage sale goodies!



These projects are adorable... you could market them!


This is absolutely gorgeous. I love it!!! Do you know what brand the paper is?
Fabulous job, Allison!!!


Hi Allison,
I love your journal. We are on the same wave length. I've been meaning to try this as well and plan to make one for a swap. Can't wait to see where you put all your treasures!


You did a fabulous job with the journal and tag bookmark Allison. Aren't they such fun - and inexpensive which makes them even nicer. I showed my granddaughter how to make one during vacation - she loved creating it so much.
Thanks for all your kind comments today - I always love hearing from you. Sweaters, jackets........oh how lucky you are! I can't wait, so even though it's too hot for them here, I'm picking out warmer clothes ready to pack for England. Got to be warm and hopefully dry while taking pics of all those cottages/villages/thatched taverns and pubs over there!
Have a super week.
Hugs - Mary.


You did a great job on your journal! Love that paper and the little girl cut-out!


What a lovely journal! I can see that you had great fun making it, too. :) Although I don't scrapbook, I love those Martha Stewart supplies, and think I might try to embellish some chandelier shades with that ribbon! Thanks for the inspiration!


I tagged you, sweetie! So GO!
