Daisy Journal: The Empty Surfaces

"...there is no such thing as a charmed life, not for any of us, no matter where we live or how mindfully we attend to the tasks at hand. But there are charmed moments, all the time, in every life and in every day, if we are only awake enough to experience them when they come and wise enough to appreciate them."
~Katrina Kenison (The Gift of an Ordinary Day: A Mother's Memoir)

Sewing Machine: A magical contraption that constructs dreams with thread.

It makes me incredibly happy to turn bits of paper into little writing journals. I'm constantly getting up from the machine, picking out something to sew onto the page, sewing it, then up again for something else. It's organic, growing until it's finished.

In this journal, there's LOTS of space for taking notes while traveling, fabric, cardstock, cut-up abstract art, scrapbooking knick knacks (raid your unused stuff!!!), mini-photos of my artwork, an artist trading card. Even a black and white paisley pocket on the back. {Shouldn't every journal have a paisley pocket?}
