Nautical Journal Theme – July 2022

June was a fairly busy month! Lots of work, which hasn’t been great for content, but there’s a little there. And at the end of the month a fun family visit! July is not quite as hectic.

Pretty Handmade Fabric Storage Box

I am a big fan of storage, but sometimes you just can’t find something that is the right size, or looks right… In the end I decided to create my own, which is super simple! Using only two fat quarters of fabric, and an old cardboard box; to make a pretty handmade storage box for my planner and supplies, so they are tidy and to hand.

On the desk...

This is quite an easy project, and can be done in a few different ways, depending on the time you have of the skills and equipment you have available.
