I'm making dd#1 a moon journal as part of her xmas pressie. I ended up buying a big drawing book with 100 sheets in. I've made the cover out of patchwork & card & am handwriting all the pages & putting all the moon phases & solar ingresses, wiccan festivals & so on. Plus the astrological predictions for each star sign in. I'd love to be able to make my own paper. I found this tutorial on the net http://hometown.aol.com/Ppreble2/paper.html
which looks very good. I'd also like to know about how you bind the journals.
co-incidentally, I'm about to embark on a mission of making a bracelet out of a coat hanger covered in paper mache & then gold leaf. I've got a picture of one in a book of mine & it looks really awesome.
