I finally got a ROD style journal up on my Etsy site. It is a pseudo ROD because I added plain paper signatures inside the stitched cover instead of all the ephemera pages. I love those stitched, ephemera pages but they are a huge time investment. I wanted this journal to be quicker to make and more accessible to those who might not be ready for all those beautiful, pre adorned pages. I have all kinds of ideas for more covers and can’t wait to get a few more done for my shop.

One of my favorite bloggers is Mary Ann Moss from Dispatch From LA. Her blog is always a bounty of beautiful colors, intriguing photos, and inspriation. I especially love the peeks into her visual journals. I’ve wanting to try my hand at visual journaling for some time and, lucky for me, Mary Ann offers a wonderful online class on creating journals like hers. So, I finally took the plunge and created my first Remains of the Day journal.
I plan to use this journal to cronicle our trip to Colorado this past June.
We had a wonderful time exploring the beautiful mountains with our very good friends, Steve and Meredith, and I’m looking forward to reliving the trip in this journal. Here are a few more pics before any journaling.
