to sir with love ...

when my fren asked me to custom make a journal for his fren, the only 2 pieces of information he could give me was, his fren is a guy and he is a teacher. err... ok ... i said.

first of all, do you guys have trouble making stuff for guys? i constantly do ... not just making stuff, but buying stuff for guys as well ... i'm quite rubbish at that, so i always end up buying them food :p ... how uncreative!

but this time i can't make a journal out of food now can i? so after many days of pondering over the only 2 pieces of info he gave me ... i hope i have done "masculinity" justice ... UGH!

i was so lucky to have chanced upon a piece of craft paper with ornate fountain pens on it! i had to make it the focal piece on the cover.

and i couldn't resist printing out this piece from an old dictionary :) like the teacher needed another reminder ... *giggle*

and of course, i was so enthusiastic that i actually wanted to purchase an old manual typewriter from a second hand shop just to get the fonts right ... that was before my sweetie told me that i could actually download old type fonts from the net for free ... *turning into a beetroot* ... but i'm glad i did cos now i have four different old type fonts and in any size i want!

well, i sure hope my fren likes it! :)

happy pimping!
