Way Cool Homemade Journal

Standard

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! ♥

  2. 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
