      Thank you! I’ll be very proud if this can contribute a little to give value to all that rubbish, cardy, lovely stuff around us πŸ˜€ at least it has help me to produce without investing –and cleaning a little my messy tables. I even think that if you’re serious doing that, in 3 years you’ll have an amazing piece of personal archaeology. I’d love to see yours!

    I am appliqueing 5 x 7 journal covers for Christmas gifts this year. Two of the journals I need 5 x 7 UNlined paper, which is impossible to find or extremely expensive. I am going to use your wonderful idea. I will use the 5 x 7 notebooks I already bought, but I think I’ll make an extra for each with ones I’ve made following this. Cheers!!
