Making Christmas Journal ornies~ "Pocket Full of Prosy"

Another full and interesting year to celebrate! ~ Time for my family to write their stories once again in these teeny tine journals and get them hung in their Christmas trees~

I made some star shaped beads from paper clay and painted the gold with this years date.
 Sepia paint to get a vintage look...


One of my mother favorite sayings, "This too shall pass"   Recipes and angels and cats in doorways~


I made a couple for myself as I write my stories of my grandmother~ She deserves  a special place in my Christmas Tree each year....

On one journal cover is a copy of a photo of my grandmother sitting with purse in lap waiting to get "on with it", I'm sure...

And of course the clotheslines and the stray cats we all loved....the raspberries and me in her chicken coop for another little journal~


Roses, recipes, music paper, script and sparkles all mod podged onto the front and backs of the little journals with special people in mind....

 
The pages in the journals are soaked in coffee and hand sewn into the little books~ I then tore the edges of the pages and added just a few light pencil lines to get the everones story started....♥
