Mini Cooper S 2007

Here is my all black Mini Cooper S 2007. Thanks for the great photo, Stephanie. I tried to locate a used one when I was shopping for it, but had a difficult time finding exactly what I wanted. I went ahead and special ordered it from Charleston, SC on my husband's insistence. I bought her exactly a year ago this month.

I recently attended my first Mini Cooper meeting this past weekend. We met at Sonic on Montgomery Crossroads, but the location will be changed to Starbucks on Victory Drive next month. If you happen to read this and you are a Mini Cooper owner, join us there every first Sunday of the month at 10 am.

There were only five members there, but it was really cool to see all the Minis lined up at the front of the parking lot. Christian drove his Lotus Elise and Heather recognized it right away. She's driven a Lotus before and we are hoping to ask her for some pointers since she is a race car driver. Maybe the the group will "adopt" Christian's car since it is a British car, but not quite a Mini. ;-)

Record Notebooks

I've always loved records. I still have a small collection of my own. I've seen a few record covers turned into journals and have wanted to give it a try.
I also love to thrift shop and go to garage sales. On a recent visit to a thrift store, I found an interesting cover to an Anne Murray record. I thought it would make a great recycled journal. Anyway, here is what I made. Tell me what you guys think. Any constructive criticism would also be appreciated.
