Whether you call it a notebook, journal or a Smash book we all need a fun way to keep track of our thoughts, dreams, adventures, experiences and yes, even our paint swatches.

Stampin' Up bird stamp (Nature Walk), button, initial sticker, burlap,
sewing machine, re-purposed book and Joy's Life sentiment stamp (My Hero)
Here's my latest version!
I have so much fun making these, and this one has
an added bonus...a pen holder.
When I saw Close to my Heart
consultant Tresa Black's burlap pen holder
on Pinterest, I just knew I had to make one! No more
digging around my purse for a writing implement.
Yes, I'm a homeschool mom & yes, I should always
be prepared to jot down exactly what my children are
doing so I can 'count' it as school-time. But honestly,
I rarely can find a pen or pencil in my purse or
anywhere in my house for that matter.
They magically disappear!
So I'm lovin' this idea!
I ran my Martha Stewart punched border through my Xyron machine to securely affix it to the spine of my journal.
My burlap pen holder was created with a scrap pc. of burlap leftover from one of my fall wreaths. It's a continuous piece that overlaps in the front than folds down to create a pocket.
