Ready for Adventure?

Are you always looking for adventure? Or are you looking for a gift for the thrill seeker on your list? I have the perfect books for you!

Here's a new blank journal, upcycled from a book with a fabulous cover. It's hard to believe this was left in a box by the side of a road in Toronto. Thanks to my friend Erin who rescued it and passed it on to me!


My Risk journals are made from an unwanted game board:


Or maybe you'd like to choose the book covers for me to make into a journal. I have books for or about boys:


And adventure books for or about girls:


What will your next adventure be?

  1. Just found you blog via My Sweet Prairie, so hi, first of all.
    Using book covers for journal covers is a great idea. I have begun to use the contents of some of my childhood books that have been read so much that they are falling apart and I have a couple of decent covers. I am going to follow your example and have a go at creating a notebook with them.
    Thanks for the inspiration :-)

    1. Good luck Louise! If you haven't done much bookbinding, you can find loads of good tutorial videos on youtube.
