One of the boys has a habit of writing on his hands, which I really don’t like.  But I understand that his mind is constantly whirring away, and he wants to doodle and write random things.  So, I came up with an idea for tiny pocket journals that he could keep in his pocket – available whenever he’d like.

To make the journals, I drew out a small rectangle (3″x7.5″).  I cut a small stack of printer paper into that shape, as well as a heavier scrapbook paper in the same size for the cover.  I stitched a straight line down the middle and folded it in half.
 

MEET SERENA!

Stay-at-home mom, Serena Thompson, dreamed of creating a fun and happy little event to sell her vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, she and some friends held the first event in her neighbor’s barn. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today the event fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces filled with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best vintage & handmade fair in the country. Serena describes it as the happiest on earth.
