I was asked to make some notepads for a women's retreat a couple of months ago. The original order was for 75 and then changed to 80 the night before they were supposed to be ready. I couldn't say no if it meant that someone would go without while others around them walked away with a notebook. My sister-in-law, Jean, was a great help with this project! The central color for the weekend was purple and daisies so we made the notebooks to match. Also, the Bible Verse for the weekend was referred to on the front of each notebook.
The purses were given to the women who helped plan the retreat as a thank you gift from the coordinator. I got the idea for the purses from a CTMH consultant, Jan Moxie, a while back and have used the purses many times since then. You can check her blog out at http//:scrapandstampforever.blogspot.com
