Sunday evening musings…

Filed under: Chameleon — jackie @ 8:14 pm

Salutations readers.

It’s been a busy week for me here in the burbs. I did get to spend some time with my friend Holly on Friday. We went to lunch and to the Chrysler Museum of Art to see the high school student art show. There has been alot of controversy surrounding this show because of some pieces that were selected as winners that have artistic nude content. The show is sponsored by our local paper The Virginian-Pilot. If you’re interested you can read more about it here and here.

I finished up two custom Chameleons this morning. One for Judy, the winner of the anniversary drawing.

 Judy's Chameleon

And one for my friend Holly.

Holly's Chameleon

Holly’s is a custom painted leather cover and has Goccoed a fox (to match the ones I printed on her refill covers…see a couple of posts back) in black and added a bit of color. I have added a pen loop to both of these and left off the cord lock which I thought might be a nice feature but it is way too bulky and not needed. A knot in the elastic card works just fine and allows the notebook to lay flat for writing and drawing. I am also now including calendar refills with the Chameleons. Each one is setup for a month with 5 weekly calendars, a month calendar centerfold and notes pages.

I’m off to finish my homework for class tommorrow.

  1. OHHH! It looks lovely. Can hardly wait to get my hands on it. I bet it feels delightful too. I have a feeling it’s going to be my constant companion from now on.

    I think the pen loop is a great idea.

    Thanks again so much Jackie.

  2. These are lovely. Such a pretty fox. Lucky Judy and Holly. :) I like the pen loop. I might try to make one on my own chameleon. I bring it everywhere with me these days and I recommend it to all. ^_^

  3. Ellen,

    I’d love to see any customizations that you do to your Chameleon.
