As I shared with you on my Monday post, which was really Tuesday because I was a day late, I just got back from attending the National Convention for the direct sales company I am a part of it.
I like to take gifts for members of my first line team who are attending. If possible, I like to make it something homemade. Mainly because I enjoy the creative process – connecting head, heart and hands.
I found a darling idea for some personalized moleskin notebooks on a blog I visit – House on Hill Road. Erin had created these darling notebooks using some fabric and her sewing machine. She was so helpful when I emailed her with a few questions as I tried to figure out the best foot to use on the machine, etc . Thank you Erin!
I copied the idea and just changed the word to “Achieve” which was the theme for our convention and used orange and pink fabric which also went along with our theme. After a little practice of “writing” with my sewing machine, I think they turned out great.
Each one had its own unique personality as my “machine writing” varied!
I made each of my first line a flower pen in pink or orange and then tied it all together with some pink and orange ribbon.
I hope my team members enjoy them!
I purchased the moleskin notebooks at Barnes & Noble – they come in a 3 pack. I also found that an open toed foot (so I could see where I was going) worked best on the sewing machine. I did draw on the lettering first very lightly and then just erased it after I was done.
