DIY Craft Journals

Hi I’m Gwendolyn and I have been a stay at home mom since 2009. I have been with my husband, James, for 10 years and we are proud parents of Jayme (8) and Nicholas (13). We are also parents to 3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 hamsters, and a snake. My father-in-law lives with us so it is always non-stop at our house. I had the honor of becoming a step-parent when I got married and have a great relationship with my step-son. I always used coupons and shopped for bargains but was forced to step up my game when my husband was disabled in 2005. I get an incredible rush from saving money and finding great deals. My life is a constant journey and I look forward to sharing it with you all.

Buying fancy journals can get expensive and my sister had made these a few years ago for my dad because he writes a lot. I started doing them as a way for my daughter to have cute journals without paying a fortune at the store. She is always doodling and could go thru one in a month. They are simple to make and not very costly.
