Last present done! woo-hoo. Baking and cleaning tomorrow and airport run the next day! I decided to make my son a sort of "memory book" for his Christmas present. I bought a nice leather binder and made these dividers. I've been writing things down - family lore, memories, etc. and will print it up, put in the binder, and give to him for Christmas. I think it's a special present that he will love. The best part is I can keep adding to it as time goes on.
I kept the divider pages fairly simple and masculine, with the exception of this one, of course.  I decided that on this divider (since I'm talking about dishes, etc.) that I would add a little bit of "mom" to it.  Thus, the coffee cup colored with my copics.  Nothing spells "mom" more than my stamps and copics!
