Journals are all the go these days and I have one with me all the time, as well as my camera. I'm more likely to leave my phone at home rather than my camera or journal.
I made these with Christmas gifts in mind. They can also be rolled up if it was decided that a hard backed journal was not appropriate.
Fits perfectly into a pocket.
So from this plain old journal
I came up with this. This journal cover will not only keep an illustrator happy, but it will hold any sort of crafty tool.
This one has a zipper pocket - just a little bit fancy. May be this would be a great cover for a special book that you wanted to take out but protect as well. I really think this little dude has lots of applications.
