I bought all the Papertrey Ink Traveler's Journal kit components with the gift certificate I got for Christmas. The book is one of the little traveler's notebook one can make with the precut and punched paper and cardstock. There is also a die to make a cover that the traveler's journals can be stored in (and easily removed and swapped out).

All sorts of dies (including the frame in the top picture) which I put to work on all the little scraps I had on my desk.

And a die for these lovely little square envelopes which I had me digging out eyelets and my eyelet setters (never get rid of crafting supplies : D). The one on top is made out of Papertrey Ink's Linen Vellum, the lower one is made with kraft cardstock, and I might be making a serious dent in my 4.5 foot stack of patterned paper lol. I used silk ribbon to make the closure of the vellum one.

My anxiety has been skyrocketing as January marches on. So I'm putting all the Distress Tolerance Crisis Survival Strategies in the handout my therapist gave me into a little book. I'm more likely to remember it if I've written it down and colored it.

For a gander at more crafty spaces head over to Julia's Stamping Ground!

Great idea to write it all out. I always find I remember stuff better if I hand wrote it down.Have a great week, hugs, Shaz #7 xx

Love the little envelopes with their pretty ribbon ties :)

I also find writing things down help. I've been undergoing a lot of medical testing and scans and such recently and was struggling to remember dates, times and which of the 4 hospitals I had to be at until I wrote them in colour codes... I think I am a colour visual person and not a factual one!

Hope you have a good week

Happy Belated WOYWW. I love those envelopes. I found my eyelet setter when I was clearing out a cupboard in my craft room, and couldn't bring myself to throw it out - despite never using it! I will find a way to use it in 2017. Ali x #29
