My grandson came over the other day and told me he lost his journals in a flood! We combined our ideas and made him the coolest journal ever! He knew how to sew the binding, so we used a spool of antique variegated fishing line for the thread, and I was saving that cigar box lid for a special project. Grandpa even helped by drilling the holes for us. What a fun project. I tried to talk him out of it when we were done.
