I am busily creating a few special projects that I'm attempting to finish before the baby arrives. I am hoping to get Pumpkin's first year scrapbooked, but have stalled around month five. I really need to get going!
I am also working on a special project for my mom. I put so much effort into my stepmother's memory book of her mother, that I've burned out on finishing the project for my mom. Sigh. I've gotten back in the groove and am hoping to finish her project in the next week. Maybe then I can reclaim the surface of my desk...

This book is my journal of sorts. I got tired of not finding a book I liked, so I finally decided to just scrap a cover of a black book. Inside are writings, to do lists, prayer lists, book quotes, and an assortment of odds and ends I don't want to lose track of. Not as pretty as Jewel's Journals, but she has inspired me to do more inside the book now and not just the cover. We'll see what happens.

Oh, wow, your journal is just beautiful, Kimberly! I love it! Is that a Victorian calling card on the front? What a lovely idea. I have been slowly collecting the supplies for the girls and I to begin journals after seeing Jewel's posts. Her everyday journals are so inspiring.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful projects with us!

A lot of the decor is just from my card-making/scrapbooking stuff, but I did decoupage on one of my Victorian calling cards as well as a few antique buttons and the ribbon to give it more dimension. I love using it! Plus, it's a nice way to start up a conversation with someone when they see it. It's easy to discover the kindred spirits!

I love these little books. Claudia over at Teeny Tiny Cabin and Dawn at 4:53 are always making these little things, too. Beautiful!
