This truly is a "sister" notebook, not only in the sentiment, but also in the flower as well! My 2 sisters are fabulous at crocheting and I asked my twin sis to make up a few flowers for me. She happily obliged and I have several different sizes to play with! I'm not sure what type of thread/yarn she used, but I love the nice sheen it has...really shines! The middle brad is a vintage type from Memory Makers I believe, but I've had it so long I can't "promise" I have the correct vendor. They are heavy duty though and hold well! What else do you need in life besides sister's and chocolate?!! I used the same DCWV Berry Market paper here as I used a few post down. Lots of fun patterns to choose from in this pack...I can't wait to conjure up some more fun items. In response to an email I received about custom orders thru Etsy...I will NOT be reserving spots on Etsy for custom orders. I'm new to Etsy and I'm happy with how it's set up right now. I will continue to do custom orders, but thru email only. This makes it easier on both myself and the customer. I have uploaded a few items into my store front that I have not posted on, so feel free to browse the new items...new Christmas tags, notebooks, and gc holders are posted.
