My Creative Journal





My mum gave me this Designers Guild journal for Christmas and I just LOVE it! Everytime I open up the cover and see the beautiful colourful flowers which adorn the inside cover I smile. Thanks mum for this beautiful book - I just hope Tricia Guild brings out a new one next year so I can put it on my 2008 Christmas wishlist!!

This really sums up the lovely lacey and damask patterns that are everywhere, so femnine and elegant! I'm really tempted to see what I can do on my gocco, i'm off to doodle......
