When we were kids, our mom often bought us books published by the Whitman Company of Racine, WI. Some were classics, like Fifty Famous Fairy Tales or Little Women (which I read over and over again, wanting to be Jo when I grew up and secretly hoping that maybe . . . this time . . . Beth wouldn’t die). Others were based on popular fictional characters or real-life singers and actors. I still have a few of them, and now I have a treasure from my sister Susan, who found this journal made from the cover of a Donna Parker book that we used to have and filled with blank paper. I LOVE it! ♥
That is a fabulous idea! Now I’m off to eBay to look for the Lennon Sisters…
Good luck! And see my sister’s comment below! 🙂

Funny . . . remember watching them at Grandma’s house with Gertrude??? Thanks again for the perfect gift! 🙂

I MUST go on a charity shop trawl!
I would have never thought to reuse the cover and make it into a journal! Your so creative…I love books so this is truly a great idea for me…I want to make one for myself and my daughter who is an English major and loves books too! Thank you
Yay! I can’t wait to see what you make! 🙂
