Cork Dog Journals

This past week, I made these cork covered journals with dog silhouettes. The covers are made from a thin layer of cork with a fabric backing. The dogs are made of dark brown cork. Each dog is cut by hand, which my sore left hand can attest to!

Cork is very eco-friendly because cork trees can be re-harvested every 8-10 years. No trees are cut down in the process.

I had fun deciding which breeds to make, but some of the fluffier breeds don't translate well as silhouettes.

I had to stand on a bench to get a good shot of my journals. During my photo shoot, Cabana came over to supervise. Ha ha, my striped socks are showing.

If you want to purchase a journal, I have them posted in my Etsy store. Blog readers can get free shipping by entering this code: oursforayear.

WE "fluffy" dogs cause a lot of problems - grins.

Beautiful!!

I've been having fun with silhouettes this week too, trying to find labs for the quilt I'm working on. It's hard to pick just the right one that looks good, but is still simple enough for an amateur quilter like myself. :)
