 Doing a December Journal with Hope  Karney on her Besottment website.
This is the cover, I had already cut a part this book to alter it, and figured I would use it for the journal. Just started to build the journal, and its large around 9x6 inches. I have so much ephemera that it just made sense to do a journal and add lots of visual journaling.  Here is Hope's website:
