Journal for Kimberly's Birthday
It was my daughter's birthday February 13th. I won't tell you how old she is that is up to her. I recently got a piece of tooled leather from my Mom. When I was a kid my Dad and I would sit for hours and make amazing designs on leather. He was so great! When Kim saw the piece my Dad did, before it was a journal, that is, she got so excited and wanted to learn how to tool leather. SO, when it was her birthday I made this journal for her to keep all of her creative ideas in. The front piece on the journal is one that my father tooled back in the late 60's.I glued it on an old leather book cover and then created this jouranl for her. She now has a set of tools and other things to start her process in learning. She is now on her way to buy a desk to set up as a space to make her leather goods on. She is talking about making dog collars and leashes and such. Kim has a bulldog puppy, Monty,and he will be her inspiration I am sure.
