The Bloggerette Sorority

Karen came up with the start of something new and wonderful,
she started the Bloggerette Sorority!
Anyone can join and it is never too late.  Visit her blog, for all the details.

Karen asked each of us to take the photo below, and make something with it.
 What you make is your choice, no rules.
Well a few rules you are to take a photo of your creation.

I decided I would make a journal.
   I find that I am always wanting to make a note of something
 I have seen on another blog.  This will be just the thing to keep those notes in.

This is the complete cover.  I have used upholstery fabric, interfacing, vintage lace,
 toile fabric appliques, T-Shirt transferred images,
an antique military button, crocheted closure
 and the little bird charm I put on most things I make.

Next, take a photo of yourself with your
completed creation!
I represent the Kentucky chapter of the Bloggerette Sorority!
  I hope you other Kentucky girls will join and maybe we can have
some fun together!

First I want to tell you how much I like your journal cover. It is very pretty and quite well constructed.

I also wanted to tell you how much I appreciated the comment you left on my blog this morning. It was thoughtful, insightful, and meaningful. Thank you for taking the time to leave it.

I am just on the "D's" on the blog hop, so I should get to your studio soon, or at least I hope I do. Thank you again for your comment.

Debbie what a great idea! I wish I had thought of that! I might steal your idea for my book that I started with everyone's name and blogs in it!

You must be the person that everyone wants to be on their committee. You took this project very seriously, and you have a seriously good looking journal. I have not done mine yet - computer troubles and lack of know-how, and after seeing yours...well, mine will be in a novice catagory.
I took a few minutes to look around your blog -very interesting and thumbs up.

Greetings from a sister in Canada, Debbie! I'm always especially pleased to meet people who know that dogs are an important part of the family, too.

Making a jounal was a brilliant idea, and it's a lovely picture of you holding it! Very clever. I tend to hide when the camera comes out.

Enjoy the rest of Rush. I'll come back and visit again...

Mimi said...

MY new sister!!!!!
I love your journal and what a great idea!!!I too will write something down I have seen on a blog, because if I don't, I will never remember where it was!!!!!
We once owned Land in KY!!!!IN Bowling green!!!!MY in laws live there 6 months of the year, obviously in the summer!!!!
We bought a lot in their new sub-division, thinking we might like to retire there as I was born in Indiana and moved to AZ when I was 4 months old, but have a lot of family in Indiana. However after about a year and half my phone rang one day and someone wanted to buy our lot, it was on a corner and a bit oversized, so with the right price, we SOLD!!!!
SO our Old Kentucky Home never happened!!!!
It may some day!!!!
so glad to have you as my new sister!!!

Gaby Bee said...
