The Chameleon…

Filed under: Announcements — jackie @ 6:19 pm

As promised, here are photos of the Chameleon refillable notebook (my version of the Traveler’s Notebook) that I made for Patrick Ng. I’ll be sending it along to Hong Kong in the morning.

The Chameleon

Patrick’s cover is made from a nice dark cowhide that has that “well worn” look. He choose a flap pocket for the back but it is also available with a large slash pocket similar to the one on the inside front of the cover. It’s got a leather bookmark with decorative beads that can be replaced with whatever you like. The cover comes with 6 refills. Three of plain paper and three of grid paper. It also comes with a cloth bag for protection and an set of extra elastic bands.

I am in the process of making these to put in my shop. In the mean time, if you are interested in getting your own Chameleon, shoot me an email and I’ll let you know the colors of leather that I have available as well as the price, etc.

The Chameleons are available for order now. Please check out the Chameleon page for more information.

I will also be creating instructions for making your own refills. I will post them on the site when they are done.

Thurday musings and Patrick’s Chameleon…

Filed under: Morning Musings — jackie @ 8:49 am

Salutations dear readers!

A reminder to readers in the local area, I’ll be demoing at Jerry’s this coming Saturday from 1-4pm. Jerry’s is also having a “Meet the artists night” on Friday March 28 from 6-9pm. There will be wine and snacks as well as giveaways. It’s a great time to come out and meet the artists who teach the classes and see a bit of their work.

Also, I’m teaching a class at Jerry’s on Sunday April 13th from 1-4pm. I’ll be teaching a simple wraparound leather journal. The classes are usually small and you leave with a finished journal and instructions for making more at home.

I’ve finished Patrick Ng’s Chameleon (the name for my version of the Midori Traveler’s Notebook). I’ll be posting photos here on the blog when I get back from class later today and I’ll also be posting info on how you can get your own Chameleon. Stay tuned.

Of note…

The Rag and Bone blog has a short list posted of classes and workshops that can be found at various places around the country.

I hope everyone has a great day!
