My church is beginning a new series called "Route 66". Over the next 66 weeks we will be going through every book of the Bible (one each Sunday) and to say the least, I'm very excited! I always take notes during church services and Sunday schools, so I wanted to have a notebook that was used JUST for this series. How cool will it be when I finish this 66 weeks and have a summary of every book of the Bible in one notebook?
I've always been a huge fan of Moleskins. If you've never tried out this notebook, you should. They are a tad bit expensive, but to me, they are worth the money! One of the big bonuses to having a Moleskin is that they are very easy to customize. Here's how I made mine note taking ready:
M A T E R I A L S
- Moleskin Cahier Journal; I get the Kraft colored notebooks.
- Embroidered Thread
- Embroidery Needles

There are really no structured steps to take. If you don't know how to embroider, check out my embroidery tutorial on the straight stitch and the lazy daisy and you can make this flower design in no time! If you are an avid embroiderer, I would check out Etsy or Pinterest (I found a lot of ideas when I searched "embroidered notebooks" on both sites) for embroidery designs to use on your notebook!
I used the lazy daisy to create the petals of the flowers and I used the straight stitch to make the stems, leaves and yellow circle in the middle of the petals. Use your imagination for this!
While you are embroidering these, remember to be as gentle as possible with the cover of the notebook. It's pretty sturdy, but if your needle has a thicker eye, it will take more effort to pull it through the cover so don't pull too hard or you will rip it!
Here are some other ideas:
-Guitar (if you write music) or other instrument
-A Bible verse or inspirational quote
-Your initial or monogram
-Your newly married name (ex. Mrs. Smith, in cursive)
-The word "think"
-The word "recipes"
It can be or say anything, and these also make great gifts!
