Welcome to rachelsays... The blog of Rachel Lewis, containing my thoughts and musings on illustration, design, fashion, music, cakey-bakey goodness, culture and things that I generally find cool. There's also a good chance my own illustration work will pop up on here.

All work on this blog is copyright to me unless I state that it isn't. Obviously. Don't do stealing, kids.

Vegetable Book!

I made this book as a birthday present for my dad.

He (and mum) have a veggie patch where they like to grow (and sometimes fail to grow) all kinds of nice things. Home grown potatoes are soooo nice and mange tout is so crispy and sweet and just immense. Beats supermarket anyday.

So he wanted a notebook/journal thing to keep track of what he's growing and when he needs to planet more stuff and dig things out etc. I was going to buy him something but I can't resist making books!
All the pages inside are either reused or recycled paper, so there's lots of random stuff in there...
bit of graph paper and all sorts :)

There's also pockets and things at the back to keep seed packets and whatever else in there.

And little veggies:
Heehee ^.^
