For many of us, our normal days have been temporarily halted.
It would be so interesting, for the sake of history, if we kept journals of what life is like now and what we learn through these unprecedented times. Each of our individual perspectives are important when recording our experiences.
Keeping a journal is also a wonderful way to clear your mind or help you to destress. Writing each day can also be a great tool for self-improvement or just a way to keep track of important events. Even though we can’t travel right now, you could make one to document your future travel adventures.
To source the suede for this project, I used an unwanted suede jacket that had been hanging around the thrift store for awhile.
(I got some comments on Facebook about destroying a perfectly good jacket for this but let me assure you, I only buy the unwanted, on-sale items. We all know what happens to the unsold thrift store clothing… on to the landfill they go. Plus, I have another project for you that uses the rest of this jacket.)
