Dream Books

I once read an article about a woman who kept a loose leaf notebook.  She cut out pictures in magazines of all the dreams she wanted to come true in her life.  She thought that if she saw them everyday, thought about them and prayed about them, it would help her focus and help them come true.
I liked that idea but as an artist, I believe in making the things we use everyday, beautiful. The idea for 
my dream books was born. These journals are all hand made, using 100 pages of acid free paper. The covers
are first cut out of chipboard and then covered with handmade papers. The most fun part is decorating the 
covers using a calligraphed quote about dreams and adding various embellishments.
