I just need to play with paper.
Not for the need to tell a story.
or to document a moment in time.
But just because I have a need...
and this need was answered by way of a pocket page made for my journal.

As many here know I do keep a daily journal.
More of a spiritual notebook of thoughts, and prayers, and renderings.

So I took to using July's WIP kit with the fabulous damask and polka dot print...
and put it to pretty work for myself.
With the help of a recycled windowed envelope, I sewed a pocket making the polka dot the liner, and the damask the page.
It houses a note from a friend that I want to have for a very long time.
To remind me of this moment in time.
To remind me of my friends encouraging words.
And I want it to be most things in my life.
because: Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.

Hoping your day is beautiful.
And you find the need to create.
