Join if you dare at What's-On-Your-Workdesk-Wednesday!
I have dove right into stitching up more Midori-style travelers notebooks. I just love making them. And you should always do what you love. I'm not bad at it either. This week I got some cute Matryoshka doll fabric, Matryoshka doll beads, and started stitching. Here, I'm actually in the middle of putting together and decorating the inserts that will go in this Midori, and I love the beads so much I had to make myself a bracelet. Can you believe me? Bead-aholic. Midori addiction. Matryoshka addiction. See....I got problems. My little Coach Midori is laying over there, and I'm making more Coach Midori's too because my sister donated an old Coach bag of hers to upcycle! Remember I told you I couldn't bear to cut into any of my vintage Coach bags, but I'll rip hers apart! That's because her bag has a back story. What can I say. Even a purse can have a back story. That's how we roll.
Aren't these beads the cutest? Here's how I turned them into a bracelet.
Hmmm...somebody loves her Russian dolls a little too much. Don't even ask to see my actual Matryoshka collection!
So, of course, all these Midori notebooks I'm making are not for me. I am making gifts, and I've decided if the love keeps going, the grommets hold out, and I build up an inventory, they may go in an Etsy shop. But then I'll need to finish my logo, figure out my packaging, open the shop and write all the text...and yet it all sounds fun to me. And that's a good thing. Have a happy week.
