Folder for a Friend

I made this folder for a creative friend that has the same problem that I have... That is difficulty in drawing in a book, or painting on a large piece of paper - the fear of "wrecking it" makes it difficult or even impossible to be free to create and enjoy.

And so I created this folder (decorated with stitching!) for her...

Inside is small pieces of different weights of paper - to be drawn on or painted on whenever she wishes. And if she doesn't like what she has done, it can be thrown away, or kept in this folder -only sharing it if she wants. There is no fear of "wrecking" something, and drawings or paintings can be kept in the folder, or even glued into a book if wanted. It makes creating more safe - no worries - keep it or not, share it or not it is her choice.

Here is my folder with a few pen drawn images that have stayed in my folder.


  1. Brilliant and beautiful! your friend will be thrilled, I'm sure.

  2. Great idea! Did you do all of the stitching? Really beautiful yet simple and clean.

  3. Oh, that is sweet, Kim
