I know I'm still so new to blogging, but I have been loving every minute of it! I loved reading the blogs of others before I ever decided to take the plunge and start one of my own. I wasn't sure if it would be something I could do, and I was so worried no one would be interested in it - but here I am on my 102nd post and feel like I'm going strong and with a lot of support!
I love the creative outlet my blog provides me: whether it be thinking up a post or sharing my paper crafts, a recipe or a scrapbook page. But what I love most of all is the connections and friendships I have made through blogland. I can't thank you enough for the wonderful support during your visits - and sweet comments. They mean so much to me!! So I wanted to give back a little with this:
I am continuing work on an "embellished journal" that I would like to give to one of you wonderful people out there. I'm also including this colorful dual tip marker set. But wait there's more! Lol What's not pictured is the candy I also plan to include and a fun Spring item as well. I have a friend that recently opened a special little store in my town and I plan to pick up a little spring goodie or decoration of some kind from there to throw in too.
I love a fresh new journal to write down my thoughts. I think journals are also nice to doodle and draw in , write down memories in, or even keep special photos in....kind of like a mini scrapbook! Well I decided to take a plain journal and embellish it a little bit to make it even more special as something from me to you. Here's a closer peek at just a few of the pages:
the cover was plain with just the polka dot fabric prior and I glued on a few romantic spring embellishments
many of the pages I just left alone - lots of room for your own journaling, but some pages here and there I added some fun little surprises (glued on, doodled on, or stickers I stuck on)
wouldn't it be fun to pull up this little pocket tag and add a special photo or message?
even a little dedication page in the front so you'll remember where the journal came from & when
