Garden Journal

My mom is an avid gardener. Spends time in her huge yard every day tending to her plants and flowers. She is 77 years old, and still does most of her own yard work, including mowing and edging, (because she doesn't like the way the gardeners do it when she hires someone to do it for her.) She is amazing (and so is her yard)! This is a gardening journal that I covered and embellished for one of her Christmas gifts. It was $1.00 at Target and inside in helps you keep track of what you've planted, where, what brand of seeds, when to fertilize, etc. The lettering stamps are called Whimsical, and they are retired from Stampin Up. The main image is actually 2 stamps side by side (one of them masked and the other one stamped overlapping it.) It's called "Long Time Friend" and it is also retired, stamped in Chocolate Chip craft ink, dried with the heat gun, and then colored with markers. The binding of the journal is covered with twill tape, held on with the double sided sticky stuff! Whether your new year's resolutions include gardening, getting organized, loosing weight, or whatever it is you feel compeled to work on this year, I pray you meet all your goals successfully!
