Created ByHand Challenge - Ribbon or Trim, Arty Girlz - Fabric


As you know, home has been very much on my mind lately as I prepare to move into my very first one at the end of November. I offered a blog giveaway last week and asked people to comment on what "home" meant to them. The responses were very moving and often lyrical. You can read them here. These two house-themed fabric round robin journals are my entries for this week's Created Byhand Challenge and the Arty Girlz challenge as well.
