Puffinpocalypse!

Oh look, I made a travelers notebook with puffins for my mom, in the midst of writing for NaNoWriMo! I didn’t include all the extra goodies I normally would, since my mom’s not a planner gal. It has the cover with elastics, a folder, a booklet, and a calendar. Since it’s all removable, I wouldn’t be surprised if she just takes out the calendar and throws it in her purse.

Can you believe I discovered when I went to paint the cover, I had no good pink paint??? It was dried up dregs. So I’m slowly replacing my old paints as I find out what’s dead. I’ve had some of them like… 20 yrs. It’s not really a surprise. They only had bright fuscia-ish pink, so I had to mix it, and naturally spilled it down my pants and all over some forms on my desk. Go me!

The puffin’s wing wraps around to the interior, because I’ve never had a decent sense of scale. Ugh. But I think it’s cute that way.

The puffins are all watercolour and pasted on.

As you can see, it includes a pink BIC pen, because why not?

The booklet has matching papers for accents. I didn’t think to take a picture of the folder. It has a tropical island, because why not?

Nov 10th is day 59 of Shenanigans!
