You know when you have a project that nags at you & stares at you & taunts you but you just can't seem to get it done? I have been working on thinking about procrastinating on making a cover for one of my finished art journals. I like to do the cover last for a number of reasons- mainly practical as it is hard to work on a book with a tarted up cover. Also it is kind of an exciting reward and a great way to finish the book. I speak like I know what I am talking about but in truth I think this is the first book that is entirely finished that has a cover which can be altered. One day a few weeks ago I just grabbed it & knocked it out. I am so excited by this cover I can hardly stand it. For one thing I made it all from my stash. 

Those special valuables that I can't seem to put on a project because the project isn't special enough. You probably don't have that problem but I hoard these items for the Apocalypse and lets face it I will be too busy surviving to scrap...hello. Never the less these special items get pulled out & put back because the project is not worthy. Not today! I used some. It really is the simple things in life because I get so happy every time I look at the cover- mainly because it is a finished project done entirely for me. Not a class or the family or designing just mine-yay! Love it love it! I hope you do too!
