Ready To Go!

Yahoo! My Remains of the Day journal is ready to go on vacation. Of course, I'm not ready yet. We still have a few more weeks until our family hits the Oregon Coast, but I can't wait to travel with my spiffy travel journal. Is it too much to stop the next town over from my house to pick up a postcard? I just can't wait to start filling this thing up.
I used up an amazing amount of paper treasure that I have had stashed away for just such a project.
Here's one of my favorite treasures in my book. It is a receipt from 1964 from my grandpa's service station. It is written in my dad's handwriting. He worked for my grandpa in high school. I especially love that 18.8 gallons of Dino Supreme gasoline came to the total of $7.30! How cool is that? I posted some other pages HERE. Thank you Mary Ann Moss. I loved it so much, I think I'll go make another for my daughter to take too.


  1. Very cool! I am sure your trip will be a blast!

  2. SO cool! Can I be your daughter? ;-) And is it too late to make one for our trip to Oregon? Since it was only 2 years ago now. ;-) LOVE the journal, it completely rocks.

  3. This is sooooooo gorgeous! I can't believe you made this! What a great keepsake for you to treasure always once it is all filled up! Thanks for sharing and inspiring!
    Hugs and blessings

  4. What a cool looking travel journal! You are so inspiring! Have fun on your vacation. :)
