Diary Page

Here is a page I began in May but I only managed to finish today because I couldn't print the photos out. Today I managed to, and I also printed the dates on so I can remember when i look back when this was!
I think, for this page, I was inspired by Judy Wise. You also may have seen the beginning of this page in this post.
This is a bit different to my usual layouts and journal pages, but I think its nice to have such diverse pages next to each other, and this also allows me to see every aspect of my life, from my thoughts and dreams to an actual little diary or planner :) My future plans for my journal are to include more machine embroidery, fabrics and more layering by including things like tags and frames.
The other day, I also made a little banner to brighten up my room. I cut the letters out of a magazine and glued them on to a piece of wool I had lying around. This is such a simple craft, a great way to use up scraps and making a little message that can brighten anybody's day!
Hope you are a having a fab week,
