This got me so inspired to finally create my very own photobook. The layout is so simple, I think I can do this.

I bought a big notebook which I plan to turn into my son’s memory book. It will hold pieces of souvenirs and a little bit of journaling. I got myself a smaller notebook as well that I will make into a little journal.

Market Tote Tutorial.

I was in the mall yesterday looking for a nice-looking, but reasonably-priced, tote bag. I prefer one that is made of fabirc with pretty prints. I am planning to use this little bag to hold our supply of snacks and water while out of the house. And after several rounds, I went home empty-handed. Maybe I should try making my own tote instead.

Bijou Lovely has a tutorial for this market tote here. Better start learning sewing basics again.

I want a similar silver magnetic board for my workspace. I hope to find a similar one from where I am.
