The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem! Actually, I don’t think there is any recovery needed, I like my addiction. I love pens and pencils, ok, actually I also love notebooks, journals, diaries, purses, fabric. . . . ok, ok, the list is long. Yesterday, my girlfriend called me and said that the Office Depot near us was going out of business and that everything was 75% off. For an addict (like me) this is great news. So my daughter and I ran over there, intending on getting a couple of things. We had a blast. I did not get a picture of everything we bought (that would be embarrassing), no instead a took a picture of some (ok, about 1/4) of the pens we bought, did I mention I love pens?
I spent $40.00, but the women stated that I had saved $122.00. Wow, that is crazy. We did get things other than just pens and pencils, there were post-it notes, and notebooks etc.
Ok, so enough about one of my many addictions back to sewing. I made the following notebook cover using the tutorial from Craft Apple. I did not do it as a patchwork as she has shown, I made it just a simple cover.
