A little about {bears} and More about {journals}

and happy saturday

First a little bit about the bears.
I´m almost done - 22 little ones
are finished for Hugglets.
I´ve decided that is going to be it.

here´s a little view of some of them.

There´s a preview of some of the bears
on my website right now

There´s still a week and now I just need to
plan the display, prepare the paper work and find out
everything I need for the fair and the weekend in London.
Cross my fingers for nice weather.


this leaves me with free time for something else.


I´m working on some journal page collaboratives right now.
More about that later.

I took some of my older journals out.
it´s been over two years since I made my first journal

here´s a look at some of those first ones.

The pages in these are mostly scrapbook paper.
That´s what I had on hand at that time - since then
I have collected books and ledgers and stuff to use.

and a look at the pages inside.

I feel the urge for more journals
and also feel my taste and style have change a bit since the first ones,
so I have decided to part with some of them.
They are all ready for use and will go in the shop.

here´s a look inside some newer ones.
More ledgers.
I LOVE ledgers, but they are very hard to find over here.

This is the last ones, including my TTV journals
from MAM´s class.

different bindings.

more look at pages.
I have some very awesome trips coming up
this year and are going to make travel journals for them all

like this TTV journal I made in Mary Anns class.
I think I´ve already showed you this in a earlier post.
Just had to show you again - I love this
'how to make a travel journal' book of mine :)

This is my new storage piece.
A kitchen island from Ikea
Bought home today
now my journal making tool storage island.

Going to start gathering some papers.

Feel the urge

Have a wonderful weekend everyone

Tina ♥♥♥

Your journals are wonderful. I love them!

Your bears are just darling. I'd like to put one in my pocket and take it out whenever I need a smile.

I adore your journals- you've packed a ton of inspiration into one post. Your double X stitch binding is great. You may have given me to the push to finish up a few more of my journals from Mary Ann's classes.
