Made It Monday

I love having such freedom with my schedule in the summer...you know what I mean...no set time to get up, lunch whenever you want, go to the restroom when you actually need to go [lol], and for me crafting and creating.  When my boys were still at home, they would walk by my craft room and say, "Oh, it's craft Saturday, isn't it?"  I'd be up to my elbows in glue, glitter, paper!  
During the summer any day can be craft day, and I love that!  Even if it's just something simple, it makes me happy!  I adore vintage ephemera...like old tickets, labels, postcards, etc.  I also adore ribbon...all kinds and especially velvet!

Well, I sometimes come up with an idea or see something cool that I'd like to do but don't have anything to jot it down on.  Then I have to rely on my memory until I get home, and these days, not such a good idea!  lol  If I do get lucky and find a scrap of paper, it gets lost eventually or I have a pile of scraps and have to spend time sorting through the pile!  
So I bought this little pocket notebook.  I really like this one because it has metal edges to it!


But I had to make it "my own" so I got out my stack of ephemera, glue, ribbon, etc. and went to work.


I took out the ribbon bookmark and replaced it with my own:  two velvet ribbon ones.


I created little sections for websites, bulletin board ideas, center ideas, etc.
I think it turned out pretty cute.  I can't wait to start filling it up!

Now, head over to see what everyone else has been making at 4th Grade Frolics.
