Herbal Ally Challenge #1 – Complete… for now!

The first challenge Kristine suggested in our Herbal Ally Challenge, was to create a journal cover. I decided to make mine with materials on hand and with a fresh twig of white pine.

Who is that, you ask? Why that is Earl of Seven! I actually named him Earl after the comedy series, My Name is Earl :) It’s all about the karma, baby;-)

I really like being able to just lift the upper edge of the insert section, and get a nice whiff of pine.

I have got a few research type pages written in my journal, but a truly inspirational writing doesn’t come from me, but from the host of our Herbal Ally Challenge, Kristine Brown.

I might order prints I take with my camera, about my journey with Miss Pinus strobus, this year, and include them in the journal design at some point, but for now, this is where the journal is at:)

Hugs to all who visit Comfrey Cottages xx

I love that you put Kristine's herbal roots in your binder. I was thinking of doing that with this months burdock issue. Now I will just be your copycat.

Lovely cover, tell Earl he is a very clever cat. No wonder he looks so proud! :)
