My Crafty (and Amazing ) Cousin Nicole.

I have this amazing cousin, Nicole, who married this equally amazing guy, Murry, and together they are adopting a child (or children) from Kazakhstan. They are nearing the end of the process, and are now only waiting for a phone call from some “adoption officials” to tell them when they will be expected to fly to Kazakhstan. Once they arrive, they will need to spend a month there in order to complete the adoption. That is not only quite a sacrifice (we know this first hand) but it is also quite costly.

So, my Cousin … who is always so inventive and motivated … has come up with a gorgeous, useful and sweet craft product to sell in order to raise some funds for their trip. She has made these wonderful journals from vintage Little Golden Books …

These sweet journals come both lined and unlined. They come filled with quality recycled paper and all of them include the original story at the back of the book. How sweet is that??? And only $15 each plus shipping!!! These would make wonderful gifts for any holiday. And I am so excited to have placed my order for the Poky Little Puppy shown above 🙂

If you are interested in her work, please visit her website and click on the FOR SALE link at the top of the page. They are selling fast, but Nicole plans to add more great journals as soon as possible. You can also place orders for certain books or styles. What a treat.

Enjoy her site.
