I needed a passport cover because, well, why not? I was intrigued by the Design Sponge tutorial for a hand-sewn leather passport cover but after visiting a national leather work shop, I was told that there are very few places to actually buy small amounts of leather. So I rather uncharacteristically gave up on the dream of slightly beat up brown leather cover with turquoise -- no -- hot pink stitching. Normally, I would forge ahead despite the cost or inconvenience. Right now, I just don't have that kind of energy. Live simply (and realistically). So I turned to ticking stripes.
The other thing I managed was to actually take a picture of the paper wreath I made and finally hung. Yep, I made this in March and hung it in August. Lame. The Living with Lindsay Tutorial is still up, and it's a good one.
