My First Moleskin Journal

I have heard about moleskin journals a lot but never have picked one up.   While visiting Rice's blog,  Notes from the Voodoo Cafe, I noticed she had a giveaway so I entered it and to my surprise won one of the moleskin journals.   I received it today in the mail and just love it.   Can't wait to actually work in it.   The pages are quite heavy so I will be able to put a lot of ink and/or paint to it and lots of other things too.     Thanks a lot Rice.   I just love it.

Take a look at the linen piece I photographed this on.   I folded it in the center so you could see the beautiful tatted edges done by my friend's grandmother.   This was one of the many linen items I got at her recent estate sale.   Isn't it just gorgeous. 


  1. That journal will be AWESOME to work in! Congrats to you! And, I just LOVE the tatting on the linen.

  2. Looks great on one of your pieces of linen.

    Hoping to one day day to see what Moleskin really looks like.

    I know you will enjoy working in your New Journal

  3. Moleskines are such wonderful journals .. and to win one, from Rice? Extra cool!
    Love the tatting ... wish I could do it, but I just can't get it that fine. Guess that's why I so enjoy what others have created.

  4. I was the other winner in that giveaway! I just got mine the other day and I love, love, love it. If I'm passing by it in the craft room I'll open it up and run my hand over the pages. Heaven!


Thanks a lot for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. That means a lot to me.
