Restaurant Review Journal

Panic is beginning to set in over at Renegade Homestead.  Just about two weeks until Christmas and I still have a dozen gifts to make.  But it wouldn't be the holidays if I didn't break into a cold sweat a few times.

The latest present to join the others under my tree is a restaurant review journal for my sister-in-law who is a true foodie.  She mentioned during her swanky birthday dinner that she wanted to start recording her culinary adventures so that later on, the meals wouldn't blend together in her memory.  At the time, I may have looked distracted by my lobster bisque but really, I was listening.

Though I attempted to create my own version of book binding a few months ago, I finally came to my senses and realized I was trying to reinvent the wheel.  There are oodles of tutorials already on the web and this one from Instructables is especially helpful.  

If you'd like to take a closer look at the journal page that I made (or print off any of your own), click here to download the PDF from Google Docs.  Now, back to my sweat shop craft room...
