Picking blueberries, is my favorite summertime activity. I am blessed to own 8 mature blueberry bushes and TODAY will be the first picking! This is my journal book to record this year's yield. My best was 130 pounds. We did a massive pruning 2 years ago and I actually had to buy a bag of blueberries, and may this commemorate the last bag of frozen I ever have to purchase. I cut the pretty graphics down to size, added the #'s from my behemoth vintage Pullman changeable #'s stamp and popped up my tiny watercolor. Mounted it on a double stick craft foam product called Phoomph. Layered it on a window blind sample to mimic the berry basket. I scored the cover so that it's easy to fold back. Added cut to size pages inside, punched 2 holes, added eyelets and twine. Fast way to make a little book. Update: Today's yield 1 lb 13 oz.

Ooh, those blueberries look delicious. I used to have an uncle that made the best blueberry pies. And, what a great journal you made to list your yield. One hundred thirty pounds ....wow! I love that window blind sample. I know you are going to have fun today picking those blueberries.

How clever to use a mini blind sample for your book cover. This is just over the top creative. Blueberries sure do mean summer is here. How blessed you are to be abled to grow your own...they must taste fabulous.

Wow Lori (auto correct spell checker insists on calling you Loti, my apologise in advance if I fail to pick that error up in future), I digress, this is such a fun and clever way to record you Blueberry pickin'. I converted it to kilo's.....wow a whopping 59kg, that's a lot of berries. I sure hope you get some relaxing time and create more beautiful cards and journals.
