Yoga Journal - Old School Craft

Yo - guess what?! I crafted!
:o)

Ok, well, I crafted back in August and am just now blogging about it. :o)

When my yoga teacher training started, I took some time and covered a basic composition notebook to use for my note taking in class. I had a couple of large sheets of pretty paper I'd purchased years ago, so I busted those out, trimmed them to size, spread some Yes! paste and loved the results.

I placed a piece of wax paper between the cover and the book page until the paste dried to keep them from sticking together.

And I attached a couple of strands of ribbon to use as bookmarks by punching a hole in the top of the front cover and threading them through.

Truth be told, the ribbons kind of get in the way and aren't as handy as I thought they'd be, but I think they look pretty.

I'm 10 weeks in to a 19 week program and this book is almost full of yummy yoga notes. How can I ever go back to using a plain ol' composition notebook for volume two? Can't. Time to bring out the Yes! paste again...

Pretty notebook. We love making these but have never used Yes paste. We'll have to try it.

It's so pretty!

We don't have composition books here - but TSO went crazy for them in Target when we were in Florida. I wonder would she notice if I grabbed one from her pile?

Pretty paper works every time! What is Yes paste?

Composition books can be hard to find here, so I buy a big pile whenever I see them (usually in the back to school sales in January) they are just the best size for carrying and writing in! I love digging into my stash for just the right paper or fabric to cover them, too!

I love pretty journals, and have covered a bunch of composition notebooks over the years. Yours is gorgeous!

So nice, Deb ~ I love it! I've been meaning to email you to ask if you've ever seen the Seeweed Kisses blog. I discovered it very recently and it has inspired me so much. I've been journaling way more than normal just because of that blog. I thought you might like it too! Also wanted to ask what your favorite sewing blogs are. Promise I'll send you an update on my class/projects soon... XOXOXO
