I've got to make this fast because my daughter is bugging / begging me to take you to the library.
I finally got a 'Wreck this Journal'. I am so excited about it and am having so much fun with it.
I have done about 5 or 6 pages in it so far. If you don't know what ' Wreck this Journal ' is.... it is this book ( see below), you buy it at a book store and on each page it gives you something to do to wreck it. So fun. I have already spilled coffee on one page. Burned another page. Trace my hand print on another. Stickered the front as you can see. It did come with the little squirrels on the front. :o)
Here is sneak peak at the next table runner I am making. Firefighters. :o)

And a camera cozy for a shop sample. Mary T. from work wrote out this very cute camera holder pattern, so I am testing it out.

Love it. Oh and by the way, the end of Sept the shop, Quilting Adventures will be having a ' gift idea' fair. !!! This will be one of the ideas. What a great way to get ideas for gifts to make for Christmas. So be looking for in on the blog at Quilting Adventures.

Did you see my latest blog post about the fabric-covered Moleskines? Might be a good idea for your holiday gift idea fair!

I love that book! I might have to get one, too. And you know my feelings about the table runner. ;-)

Your journal sounds like a lot of fun, I have never heard of it before... I have never seen them in the Netherlands, were did you get it. Maybe I can get a friend to get me one, I think my eldest daughter would love it too!
Maybe I should sew my own camera bag too... I am just tempted to go to a shop and buy one that is water proof

I have been wanting to play with that book! keep us updated as you work your way through it and let us know if it is fun/worth the purchase. I do wonder if I could intentionally wreck a book!

I LOVE the firefighter fabric - where'd you get it? (And - how come I never see firefighters looking like that at the fires I am at - haha).
