I've noticed that my mom LOVES to write in her journal, she does it everyday. She had her pencils and Gel pens in a plain wooden box she had gotten from Hobby Lobby. I was looking at it when she suddenly handed it to me and said "Here decorate this for me." And this is what I came up with. The only thing I had to purchase was the patterned paper. which came out to $1.50 due to %50 off at Hobby Lobby(at the time).
