The little mini journal above was designed by Wes (11 years) for a girl he likes (a birthday present). He spent at least an hour picking out the exact right image, the exact right fabrics, arranging it in the exact right order, and then hovering over me nervously while I sewed it… he was so worried that this or that might be crooked or 1/8″ off from where he had placed it that I finally told him a lesson I learned when I was an art director: “Creatives DON’T like to be over-art-directed.”

(Obviously I was gentle about it! It is about a girl, after all!)

Anyway, the new size was a genious idea! Will be offering some in my etsy store soon…
