Making and Creating, Day 1

One of my goals this year is to make or create something outside of my regular work each day.  Now, I am three days behind schedule because I didn’t want to take time away from our Christmas celebration with my daughter, Leslie and her partner, Greg.  So, earlier today I stashed most of the holiday hoopla, did a small bit of cleaning and then got to work on the Diagonal Pocket Folder designed by Hedi Kyle.

I used a lovely paper by Shizen Design, Brushed Gold.  It has a really luscious cloth-like feel and folds beautifully.
