My daughter (who will be 11 in a matter of days) wanted to do the sewing on my next journal. Of course! She grabbed the pile of papers I'd collected and took the controls. She whizzed through the journal, adding paper, turning, stitching, folding, cutting, zip, zap. I handed her scraps of cardstock, maps, words, etc. and most were declined as she dug through scrapbook paper for her own picks... in the end, a combination of our choices, with lovely and unique stitching. My daughter named it "rosebud" for the paper on the front cover. The funny thing, she is not interested in writing in it, just making it!
