I have a DREAM Blog Hop!

Welcome to my little stop on your Dream Hop! 

Do not forget... “The Grand Prize Blog Candy is the Dreams Come True Cartridge,  donated by an anonymous donor!!  In order to be eligible to win, you need to leave a comment on each and every stop on the hop, along with a way to contact you.  Karelj will choose a winner by random.org on the 18th and announce it on her blog, as well as contacting the winner personally.”

I have a dream... a Dream Journal!
Hand Stitched using the Coptic Stitch. There are 6 signatures with 60 pages. The Journal measures 4.5x6 and is made from a leather Remnant. 

The front is stamped with a Giant Sun from Unity.

The Closure is a Metal "DREAM" Imprinted Circle and a Stone Bead.

"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible."
T. E. Lawrence

"A Dream is not a Realized until it is shared by Love."

These are both so incredible, I don't know where to start. The journal is so rich loking and will last for generations, so your thoughts and dreams inscribed there will be read by those who will cherish them in the future. And the bracelet is just the thing to remind yourself to keep those dreams alive! Thanks so much for hopping with me. You are one of my dreams come true! Karelj
