|It has the original endpapers on the inside of the covers.|
|The book is approximately 4 3/4" x 7 1/2"|
I also made a smaller blank journal using acid free lighter weight paper and sewed it over tapes. I am quite happy with the outcome. I just have to decide on covers. I was originally going to use vinyl covered book board covers, but think I may go with something a little lighter. Stay tuned:

Today I have work to do for the website I maintain. I need to update all the pictures and add their latest special event. This will take several hours after I drive to Mason to retrieve the pictures. I am hoping to decide on the covers for this 3 1/2" x 4 3/8" book and get it attached also.
Anything else I manage to accomplish will be icing on the cake, and you know I really don't need any cake. I've crept back up into the high 160s and liked it much better in the lower 160s. I have come to realize that 160 might be my ideal weight. I am still "in love" with 145, but that was my 30-something weight and now that I am in my late 50s that is no longer realistic.
The hubster cut some luan to a 4" x 5" size. I am going to try using it for book covers. I haven't decided whether or not to paint on it or just cover it with vinyl like the book board I use. I think my next book will be made like the "I Dare You" book, but the book being repurposed is called, "Training the Dog". I am thinking of reinforcing the spine from the inside and then cutting slits so I can make a long stitch journal. More later.....
I need another mug of coffee and then I'd better get this day started.
Thank you so much for visiting. I hope you have time to leave a comment or suggestion.
