A Writer

As far as I can remember, my brother has kept a journal.  A journal of thoughts which might eventually become the lyrics to one of his songs.  A journal of random thoughts and ideas.  A journal of places visited and people he has met. I made this journal for him from an old school Spanish Grammar book.   I stitched some squares of a painted background and attached it to the cover.  My brother is no stranger to binding books.  He spent several years repairing library books.  He could certainly teach me a thing or two.  Enjoy the journal, Louie.


  1. What a great gift!! I love this!!!
    I am beginning to paint most of my journal covers. Even my my daily writing journals. I just like the fun painted covers. Makes using them all the more enjoyable.
