sneak peek and a journal

I'm just in time for the QB5 Xmas swap
just a sneak peek of a little something on it's way to the gals
more later...
during my 'getting better time' I treated myself to an online course
Remains of the Day from Mary Ann Moss at Dispatch from LA
and what treat it was!!
 loads of inspiring vids in a truly watchable style
every year I say I'm going to do a December journal
well here it is! 
 
 inside cover
 now the work really begins
I have to sew my scrap pages together
and get them stitched in
 I'll finish the spine with a piece of vintage gold braid and a tassle
 a great opportunity to use up all those bits lying around
the journal doesn't require a huge amount of writing
so I'll think I'll just about  beable to manage it!
