I am going to do a little document/journal/scrapbook project right here...all summer long. Wanna come?
There is no charge, no special supplies, just you, the stuff you have and summer (or winter if you are in South Africa)
I seem to love and acquire blank journals so while I could have used one of the many I already have to document my summer, I tore out pages from all of them...stacked them up, sewed them together...used a piece of Kraft cardstock, made a cover and stitched my litle Hello Summer doodle on it
and made a smash-book-junk journal style book. I TRIED (key word) to sew all of my sewn pages to my cover....
and well, now I have to take my machine in for service...so I got out the ol' tape and taped my sewn pages into place.
Then I did use my crop-o-dile to punch a few holes in the seam and used a piece of string to secure it together. My book measures about 6 x 8 and has several mis-matched pieces of paper, tags and cardstock.
so, are you in?
Wanna Follow along?
Ready to document your summer??? or your winter??? or simply, your everyday ordinary life?
Here are a few more supplies I am going to gather and use:

I will be adding my pages to the sidebar and you can follow along there or, if you want, you can email me at homegrown1(at)att(dot)net & send me your email address and I will add it to the Hello Summer list that will be sent out as I doodle out fun things that can be added to your book, too! Hello Summer 2013!
