Preparing

I'm doing two craft shows this year...in November and December.  Time flies (107 days until Christmas by the way!) and I want to be more prepared than I was last year.  I'm trying to make something every week and this is what I found time to make this past weekend.

Six little notebooks ~ and six more in the works.  I found all the images in this post on Magic Moonlight Studio and Vintage Stampers Freebies.  They have some great FREE images to share!
I found these notebooks at Target.  They're light weight and the covers (including the inside covers) are a nice "kraft paper" color.  I bought all twenty of them and guess what?
They were on clearance!!  They were 64 cents!!  I love clearances!!  
They are perfect for journals....much nicer than the ones I've used in the past!  I just have such a great time making things like this and I am so grateful to have such a special room to create in.  I have a lot of ideas and plans.....now I just need to have a lot of time! Better yet, I need to pray that I make the very best use of the time I have!!

Marie, these look so pretty! They will make nice gifts for stockings! I haven't done a show in years and I miss all the fun! Our best show around was at a quilt shop and the wonderful people that owned it retired. So many sweet memories of those times.
I KNOW you are going to have fun!!
Hugs, Diane

Marie, these are beautiful. SO I was at target last night but didn't see any of those fabulous notebooks..you are a lucky gal!

I'm so glad to see you getting a jump on your work, keep showing us all your goodies. I need someone to kick me in the bottom and get me thinking about a show I'm in this October.

There's just something about the word clearance that puts a twinkle in my eye...lol
Your little notebooks are awesome and so are your journals. I bet they'll be a hit at the craft shows.
