It all started with...

Isn't that the way you explain something complicated to your spouse or mother? 

Well, it all started with the Letter L.  I was looking through the different designs on TanglePatterns and didn't see anything I really liked.  But one was similar to the word lace.  And lace is similar to ribbon, and I needed some ribbon for a project.

Still with me?

So I went to Hobby Lobby at lunchtime (missing my lunch, I might add) and bought my ribbon (50% off), a spool of lace, some paper, and three ink pads.  I'm not sure what to call this lace/button combo, but I love buttons and know I can use it in my project. 

I'm making a Junque Journal for myself.  Remember a few days ago, I talked about always picking up flyers from places I visit?  Well, I have a whole bunch from last month.  And some business cards, tags, postcards, etc.  All those little things I can't seem to throw away.  So I'm going to put them all in my Junque Journal, and see how long it takes me to fill up the pages.  Oh, I got a composition notebook too, and it's 200  pages long! 

So, there's my plan.  With a little lace thrown in.


Read about what others are doing at AlphabeThursday with their Letter L, over at Miss Jenny's site, "off on my tangent."
