Bleak January

Updated: Sep 16

It’s not the best time of year so we have to cheer ourselves up by crafting . I have taken to altered books and journals , they allow lots of different crafts in one project

There is probably a right and wrong way of doing them but I have just gone with my own inspiration

combining paper craft , fabric and beads the odd bit of sewing etc .





I enjoyed learning some things I never tried before , Hidden paper clips and using old envelopes to make journal pockets ,


I then made some fabric flowers and found stencils which I have not used for years , my long unused stash of card making supplies have been resurrected .


All this started with the Christmas planner swap and after participating, I thought how relaxing and stimulating craft journaling was giving free reign to a variety of ideas

I will show some pics of things I have made to include in a recipe journal , a Christmas planner and a large pocket holder to store paper



This is a mini 2 inch pocket concertina journal with little tags in each pocket


mini note books are a new try also with just 8 pages each , easy to tuck into a purse or phone case


I might not be doing the correctly or following the rules but I am having fun 🤩 Liz
