Medical Notes Journal. Crafting For Real Life

Crafting is good for so many things… including stress relief. The Mumster ( aka my mom) was admitted to the hospital and we’re in the process of figuring out what’s going on.

We live in different states and I couldn’t get a flight out the same day, so while I was waiting I had to burn off some energy. I figured I could make something practical, like a journal to take notes in when I do meet w/ her doctors.
Medical Record Journal (2)

Took a 9.5 x 6 spiral notebook that I had on hand and matched some scrapbook paper to the cover since I couldn’t cover over the spiral binding.

Notebook Makeover

Used a piece of paper from DCWV’s “Tradewinds” stack:

DCWV Tradewinds

and glued it to the cover with Ranger Glue N Seal. Added a piece of Core’dinations Whitewash cardstock and cut a semi circle from the remaining Tradewinds piece. Added some Colobok metallic rub-ons.

Found a decorative chipboard piece in my stash and used a scrap of the Tradewinds paper to fill the center of it. Embellished w/ pre-shaped decorative rhinestone swirly thingies and computer generated the caduceus ( medical thingy) and text.


I crumpled the paper w/ the text up and brished over it with Ranger Distress Antique Linen. Glued that down w/ the Glue N Seal.

Maybe I won’t be quite so stressed if I’m taking notes in this? Hopefully!

One of the Mumster’s favorite sayings is: “Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans”. Yup.
