Finally, I got up at about 5 am and started actually making one. Since I am by no stretch a morning person, 5 am is still the middle of the night for me. So I figured, obviously since it's not yet tomorrow morning, it's still yesterday, and I'm still on schedule!
Oh well... works for me.
So here is the actual book I actually made, out of real stuff instead of dreams. The cover is cut from a cookie package for "Marias" cookies, filled with "cajeta," an absolutely delumptious caramel type spread made with goats' milk and caramelized sugar and one which I love entirely too much. Yummo! The package is a sort of cello-like plastic, but thicker, and partly transparent. The book block is made of the kind of grid paper that kid's here in Mexico use a lot in school. It is wrapped with pink bond paper to show through the cover.
A Japanese stab binding stitched with brown waxed linen thread ties it all up. I left some excess at the top edge then knotted it to form a bookmark. The journal is very soft and can be rolled up to fit into a backpack (sort of like a packet of cookies).
