New Old Diaries

My girls have been creating 2013 diaries from old books. (Hence the op shopping!) Don't mind my drawn on table in the photos. My grandchildren have so much creativity in them that sometimes it oozes out onto the table. Fortunately, they mostly only feel creative with pencils which means the table is quite easy to clean!

The upcycled diaries are the brainchild of Picklesticks (my Jess). You pull apart a cloth covered hardback book, print up some diary pages, sew them together, rebuild your book, glue it, and da da! New Old Diary!

Having sat by as the girls made their diaries, I think I could make one. It's going on my loooooong to do list. Jess and the grandies go home tomorrow so we will have a bit more making time. Less squish-hugs, but more making time.
