It's that time of the week when we have a blast popping around the web and have a looksee where other creative souls create their
Here's how my table looked when I left it last night. Check out my two new flex arm daylight lamps on either side of my table. Man, do they give out some awesome light! Who knew lamps could be so exciting?!?!?!
Here's a bit closer overview of the table. I'm working on some simple single signature junk journal albums for a craft market this weekend. These are an experiment for me. The one in aqua is the first time I've attempted stitching in a signature. I used a simple three hole pamphlet stitch and would have had far more success had I not used my ultra thick baker's twine! Lesson learned. I then started searching for something else in my stash I could use and remembered this lovely box of embroidery floss I've had for ages as I used to do a lot of cross stitch. I asked around on the Junk Journal Junkies chat Facebook page if anyone had used it with luck, and got a surprising amount of positive responses. The only suggestion was to run it through some candle wax first, which I did. It worked like a charm on the yellow journal! So now I have tons of pretty colors of floss to use, and I've pretty much conquered my fear of stitching signatures....sort of.
That flap on the left side will be glued down at the top and bottom to create a tuck spot on the inside front cover. The other flap on the right comes over the front cover. I'll probably attach a pretty brad with some seam binding that will wrap around the journal and tie in front for an easy closure.
If you are a jewelry maker or looking for charms and beads, I'm having a flash sale today in my Etsy store. Beads, charms, pendants and jewelry making findings are marked down and ready for you to stock up.
Don't forget about my monthly altered tag linky party. You can find the information about it in this post. And stay tuned on January 20th. That's when the actual link post will be up and active.
Thanks for looking at my blog. I appreciate all the wonderful comments everyone leaves. Happy Crafting!
