Handmade Fall Daybook

Wow! What a relaxing and quiet weekend! Hubby had to work and the kids kept themselves busy AND quiet! Woohoo! This allowed me to enjoy some much needed mommy crafty time! :)
I have been wanting to try making a daybook for some time now. I belong to group over at Facebook called Daybook Delights ( ), the group was inspired by the very cute Amy Tangerine Daybooks. The members of this group are very talented and inspired me to try and make my own daybook.
Fall is my FAV time of year so I knew my first book would need to be Fall inspired!
This post if picture heavy! Thank you in advance if you make it all the way through the post! LOL
I just didnt want to leave any pages out!
I started with a 6x6 paper pad by My Minds Eye (Darling Dear). The overall dimension ended up being 6 1/4 X 4 1/2. The binding is hand sewn with a cotton crochet thread. I used several different elements to embellish my book so I won't list them all since this is already a long post. If there is anything you want to know please feel free to ask and I will get back to you with the details. If you are interested in making your own daybook I would highly recommend heading over to Daybook Delights, there are several great tutorials and some great inspiration by the fab members!
