Handmade journals by Patty Van Dorin


I have a secret love for scrapbooking papers and other bits and pieces of pretties, I actually have a little collection growing in my draws that I use for doing collages. These collaged books by Patty Van Dorin are making me all inspired to bring out the glue stick and scissors!! mixcds with collage covers coming up :) or perhaps I'll do some in the journal I share with my bestie jags.

PS. this blog is also making me feel happy.

PSS. I also just got rid of my twitter, sorry guys I was becoming too unproductive.

  22. You quit twitter completely?! Will you come back? You didn't even say goodbye *cries*. I totally understand though, I'm so glad twitter wasn't really around that much before I finished uni or I wouldn't have got a thing done. I don't exactly have a chance to tweet while working at Ikea hehe, probably a good thing actually, I wouldn't say nice things..
    I'll miss you!
