My friend Nan and I were talking about dreams the other day. She said she had a wonderful dream about her mother and would have to write it down, but she never got around to it. I keep a dream journal and pen right next to my bed, so that I can write dreams down as soon as I wake up. It's so fascinating to read them later. Nan is really into creating homemade books, so I thought that I would make a dream journal for her. I was quite thrilled with the idea I came up with for adding a pen. The pen holds the journal closed with two loops of ribbon. Pretty cool, eh?I love how making gifts for someone encourages us to try out new and inventive ideas like this!
