Now that Christmas has passed, I can show pics of a couple of gifts recently given. I absolutely love the covers of this book, and it was hard to give it away. I made this journal for my 20 year old nephew--I hope he will find a use for a blank book. His favourite colour is orange.
You can't read the title of the book very well here--it is "The Snake Gets All the Lines," embossed on the lime green covers in orange ink. Not bad for 1960, eh? And isn't that a fabulous title for a journal?
This next one was made for a new baby. I was hesitant to give it, since I don't know the parents real well. I shouldn't have worried though--they were instantly pleased, and knew it would be used to write letters to their growing son.
It was made from a book of Paddington Bear stories, perfect for a little one.
