Sending Sun to Virginia

Thursday, July 14, 2011

A quick post on a new custom journal made for a customer in Virginia, it's the first time I used different color threads to bind with (I had a hard time deciding which one so I used them all!) It's straight stitched like the one a couple posts below.
I am still running in second place in this contest with my PopTart journal - PLEASE vote (a free lifetime online shop for me for life if I win!)

I've got 5 custom orders and one for my shop(s) ready to be bound, all but one pictured here, the bottom two with the roses will be getting a slipcase to hold them both:





If you've read my blog for a bit you know my taste in music seems to hover between the 60's-80's (and definitely no hip hop or rap) but here again a song in a TV commercial made me take a better listen to something much newer..I kinda like it ;o)
 
Let your soul gravitate to the love, y'all.......at the Shores
