Bunny Journal Binder
My dear friend Sandy just celebrated her August Birthday and this is the gift I created for her. She likes Bunnies. Sandy is one of those rare and wonderful ladies who is forever grateful with whatever I make for her. Avery office products makes these sweet little half size 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" three ring binders. I created a fabric cover for it.
This is the spine of the binder and I merely attached some ribbon with vine and leaf embroidery. Then I attached three really cute Bunny buttons that resemble the gardening bunnies on the fabric.
I forgot to take a photo of the inside. The fabric slipcover creates pockets inside the front and back. I cut up a Birthday card and punched three holes to place as the inside greeting. Then I randomly punched some old ledger paper to insert for notes and scribbles. This was well received by Sandy and she is so sweet to always like anything I create for her. I am very grateful for such a dear friend.
Welcome to my new followers and I do hope you come back again.
Thank you all for your well wishes with my back and leg. They are doing better with meds and lots of rest. In fact I have done nothing but rest for over a week now due to catching a nasty Staph infection in my throat. More meds and more rest and finally antibiotics that I hope will be the miracle I need to feel well again. It is not like me to have to cancel my commitments but I certainly do not want to infect anyone else. No Chamber volunteering and No visit with my beloved sister tomorrow. We will have to postpone our get-together and reschedule it for another day. Normally I do not like to share my ills however I must really need your extra support right now as I just turned another year older. It seems each year just at my birthday timing I get sick. Hmmm...
I have lots of projects planned but will not work on them until I am completely well because I do not share my germs with anyone...except Mr. C and I am really trying to keep him well. His trip to Bonneville Salt Flats with the BUB Seven Streamliner Motorcycle went well however nothing super exciting happened as this was merely a testing trip.
I am seeing lots of you are moving right into Fall with your decorating and creating. Summer has been long and hot here with no rain and all the fires so I can see why you want Fall to arrive. This morning we actually had about 27 drops of rain fall on the upstairs deck. Nothing to dance about and it certainly wasn't even enough to water the parched plants. Tonight is the Full Moon and you can bet I will be gazing at it and loving how beautiful and magical the moon really is. Goodbye August...
