Altered notebook


I teach one of the Bible classes at the church attend and every week when I'm preparing I write my notes on the backs of evelopes and other bits of scrap paper. Good for recycling but not so good cos I like to keep them to refer back to every now and again. So I've bought myself a Pukka pad and given it a bit of a makeover actually using some K&Co papers I've been looking at and stroking for the best part of 6 months! I'm quite pleased with the result. I've kept the flowers etc flat because it'll get handled quite a lot and I think it'll wear better this way.


Thanks to everyone for your Birthday wishes. The birthday draw is now closed. I'm gonna print the names out and cut them up and get someone to pick one out of the hat (so to speak) when I go to church this evening. Be back tomorrow evening with the winner. Happy weekend all.

This is so beautiful. I love a good noteboook..yours has such a sophisticated feel. It is always so much nicer to write in a beautiful notebook than scarps of paper. Might have to do one for myself for my own Sunday School Class!
