this is the third year i'm making a personalised diary for a friend of mine. we all love carrying around our diaries. i like actually writing down my appointments and i also use it for extensive to do lists. i used to make the diaries from scratch, but for the last 2 years i bought a stylish calendar (i.e. the moleskine works perfect for this project), decorated the cover, made a sleeve and added embellishments, stickers and hand stamping to the inside pages. this year i also made a sheet of stickers to use to mark special days of the year. here is a peek on how it turned out. if you know someone uses a diary, i think this makes a great personal gift!!
