Leather Bound Hand stitched Journal

I have been saying I was going to make some hand stitched journals for forever it seems. I bought all the supplies. I researched, I learned a few stitches.... I was ready... then nothing! Lost my Mojo, I guess!
Well, I finally did one today. So simple, elegant and I can not wait to do some more... I have some designs in mind, and a few ways to embellish!!!

Here is my first crack at it....


This one has 100 pages 4.25x5.5 size. The journal was hand stitched and has snaps for a closure. 
I think these will make great gifts!!!

I am still searching for my two blog candy winners... Java Jen and Becky... I will redraw next week if I do not find them by Wednesday!!

I love your journal! I've never been brave enough to try to make my own... Maybe you'll give me the inspiration to try...
