Mama loves butter, don't you see?
And-on good biscuit-so do we !
Mama loves something better than that-
She loves her Children plump and fat .
I have been meaning to share my birthday gift to myself. The girls and I each have each have sketchbooks and copy-work books. But mine was getting shabby (not in a shabby chic way) and needed a new one. Plus I wanted to breath some new life into our books. I have seen several journals on-line (I will write about those in another post) that really motivated me. In this post I will share what I got and next post some of what we have been doing.
I decided since this was my birthday gift, I was going to get good and pretty supplies. I knew I wanted a large sketchbook that was spiral bound. I wanted it to be able to expand as I added thing like ribbons and buttons to it. I also wanted a hard cover, not a floppy one. I found one (after looking at 8 stores) at Barns and Noble. One of the things I like about this sketchbook is the inside edge is serrated. So if you want to pull out a page it would be easy and have a clean edge. The cover was icky, so I gussied it up !! I want to thank Andrea, because of my order from One Hundred Wishes, my cover turned out so charming. I even used her business card and ribbon. I thought the sentiment was perfect for my journal.
Because I am so scattered, I have found it best to keep all my craft supplies grouped together (Like all my felted wool in one suit case). So I made a little bag to hold all my supplies. I love Bend the Rules clutch. I just made a long, skinny version.
The poem above is from the picture on the journal. Ofcousrse it is a mama and her babies. I loved this poem, it made me smile.

Oh my goodness, I can not tell you how yummy this glue stick is. It is made in Italy and smells like the world's best marzipan. The only thing is I want to bake every time I journal !!!!
