  4. Love the idea of covering a journal with felt. How cozy to reach for! Great idea to try and emboss it. I wonder what would happen if you got it wet and then did it? Probably a wet mess, but it seems like it should work for some silly reason!

    Thanks for commenting on my blog post. Yes, I am still in Seattle. It's definitely home, and I couldn't imagine living anywhere else. We are spoiled here in the Pacific Northwest! Snohomish is a lovely place. I worked up in the Everett area for three years, and visited Snohomish often.
