‘Dear Dahlia’ Journal ~ A nod to Wednesday Addams!

Oh I’ve had so much fun creating this journal. Along with echoes (from 13 years ago) of dum de dumming the old Addams Family tune while bobbing a little ‘un in my arms to get those gorgeous baby smiles and chuckles!

Anyway, I digressed a little there! Back to this journal.

It is a nod to the character Wednesday Addams but I wanted to pull out a few elements which fascinated me. The typewriter, the black dahlias, the absolutely gorgeous black cello and of course the Raven dress.

Of course, the colour theme had to be black, hence the black ruffle frame and signature edges. There is a hint of a dark burgundy, faded, but it is there.

This called for my new toy…a swivel stapler!!! Oh my , it’s brilliant but a normal stapler will do (I’m just fascinated by the thing!)

You see, I don’t do well when it comes to sewing. A button, name tag and the odd rogue seam is my limit. I wanted a ‘stitched ‘ look along the ruffles, so I turned my trusty stapler upside down and stapled along the centre. Perfect. The cute gold tone staple pins really set it off.

When you don’t sew… staple it!

There are 3 signatures .The binding is with a black satin ribbon to compliment the organza ribbon found through out the journal.

The inside of the front and back cover, each have a concertina/ file fold. Closed with the organza ribbon. They contain extra journalling cards which could also be used as photo mats .

Throughout there are tags and hidden paperclips decorated with lace and torn doilies.

The writing pages are a mixture of plain and some with the imprint of a half doily on the edges.

Here’s the flip through.

Where to find it.
