Do you love to travel? I know I do, and I like to keep a journal so I can remember all the great things I saw and did along the way. So, if you're anything like me, having a place to write other essential information is handy too. This journal has everything you need to stay organized and creative. It was entirely written and handcrafted by me (Christine Marie Ford) with you in mind. Here's some key features of this new product...

- Genuine oil tanned leather (cowskin) in rich black bound with red Irish linen thread. Note-this leather scuffs easily for a distressed look over time.
- A beautiful OOAK fiber art piece with swarovski crystal is stitched into the cover making it truly special and unique. The collage technique is the same I use in my major fine art pieces!
- 200 pages (both sides) 24 lb natural parchment paper
- pages are approx. 7.5" high x 5.5" wide (overall book size 8" x 6")
- the first 20 pages contain the following contents to help keep you organized:
* Personal Information
* Important Contacts
* Pre-trip Check-list
* Packing Checklist
* Travel Itineraries, Accommodations & Other Info
* Autographs (for travel buddies, new friends and others you meet along the way
* Daily Journal (120 lined pages)
* 40 blank pages to sketch, paste pictures, theatre tickets or anything you like! This is your place to be creative!
* leather placeholder with a special decorative ladaki bead

*** Deluxe features
