I made a couple notebooks for the Christians at the Crossroads conference the day before we left, which was quite an endeavor for such a busy day. Thankfully I was able to get them finished in time.
The covers are decoupaged (for extra beauty) chipboard with scrapbook paper. The lined pages are cut from one of those great back-to-school 5¢ notebook deals. The smaller one is actually made from the scraps of the pages in the larger book.
The handy little Zutter Bind-It-All machine punches the holes and securely crimps the binding to keep the notebook together. These are the first two notebooks that I have made with the Zutter, and I’m sure there will be many more to come. It is a very easy tool to use, and makes one feel quite productive!

These were in the background of a photo shoot I did for the Girlhood Home Companion (a beautiful magazine for daughters, mothers, and grandmothers).
The tea cups have been around for a long while. I don’t remember a time when we did not have them. We still use them as we always have – for muffins and milk. They are old, chipped, and cracked, but just as lovely as they ever were.
