TAD – Day #1

Wow – 11:52pm and I just now posted my Day 1 entry to thing-a-day.com .

For a long time I’ve wanted to create a journal in which I could record projects made, including swatches and yarn samples from past work.  What better day to do so than on the first day of a month long craft challenge?

Getting ready

No magic to this one – simply took the cover off an art tablet, covered it with embossed scrapbook paper, and added a nameplate.  It took longer than expected, primarily due to the cutting out of the squares for the spiral.  Too much of a perfectionist for that to go quickly.

Stupid squares...

Lined the inside with a coordinating paper.  I love dots, can you tell?

And finally put a nameplate on the front.  Sooner or later I would like to actually stitch one to replace it, but it will do for now.

With rounded corners, naturally.

I also shared an ongoing knitting project in my Day #1 entry, as I’m hoping sharing it will motivate me to also finish it by the end of the month.  We will see!
