A few weeks ago, I showed you how to create your own Bullet Journal.  It is a great way to keep yourself organized and be creative at the same time.  This week, I want to show you how to make your own cover for your journal.

This unique cover made with polymer clay is not only fun and easy to make, but it will make your journal all the more unique to you!  Polymer clay is an easy to use oven baked clay that is incredibly versatile.  It can be used to create not only book covers, but ornaments, jewelry, art and much more.  It is limited only by your imagination!

My journal not only includes daily tasks, but doodles and craft ideas for future posts.  Since creativity is throughout the journal, it seemed right to continue onto the front cover.  So with that in mind, I created a fun peacock cover using polymer clay.

And I am including a free pattern for you!

Well, apparently college football season is upon us.  I’m what you would call a “football widow”.  The hubby and his friends watch football all day every weekend and I hole myself up in the coach, turn up the stereo and craft.  But not before I put out a nice spread.  I love an excuse to grill out and this week, I prepared for Tailgreatness with a yummy Spice Meatball and Sausage Kebabs recipe!

Between you and me, the sound of football puts me to sleep.  Something about the drone of fans and the repetitive slow motion plays.

Ask me who I’m rooting for in any given game and I will point out the team wearing my favorite colors.  Oh, and do a bit of oggling.  Because who can help it when you are looking at a whole mess of guys in the equivalent of spandex tights.

But, I’m always up for a challenge and if the yard is full of football fanatics, then I plan on putting my spin on it.  Here is my recipe this week.  It is a spicy version of Kebabs that is certain to put a bit of spark in any tailgating party.
