Whenever my friend Mary Ann and I are together we always find time to do a little crafting ... Mary Ann is an amazing artist and always has wonderful things to teach me ... unfortunately we live too far apart to get much 'play time' in... she and her dear husband Abe are in town for a few days so we got to spend some time playing ... This is a picture of one of the journals she taught me to make ..."what a fun project"!
Actually the 'pages' are supposed to be made out of brown paper lunch bags, which gives you 'pockets' to put pictures or cards, or whatever in ...but for this one I just used paper since I didn't have any bags ... as you can see the 'spine' of the book is made by weaving chop sticks in and out of slots you cut into the paper.
Funny how things happen ... the day after Mary Ann taught me how to make the book I went yard sale-ing and found a box full of vintage chop sticks!
