My Journal

Since we are alone now, I wanted to share something I've been "working" on now for 6 years.
(Rach O this will look a lot like "vision boarding" only it's NOT a vision...)
It is a journal I started. Cutting bits of magazines out to "tell" my entry. Why has it taken 6 years...you'll see. It takes time collecting, piecing together, a page that SAYS something.
At first the pages were just "fit together" words making to entry...later on as I collect more and more, the pages become color coordinated. (Yes, I know I'm type A. Keep in mind it's been 6 years and counting !)
Front inside cover:



I'm skipping through now, I want to give you a feel for how the journal reads. Then I'll show you some of my favorite pages.

Page 26:

Page 30 and 31:I chose to share these pages because they are resonating with me these days. I look through my journal once a week. I work on it very very rarely. I want the pages to SING to me, not be hodge-podged together by my obsession to finish...so the last time I "wrote" was last summer, when I needed to purge magazines! I even threw some out in December without going through them! GASP!

Now you are all allowed to tell me how genius I am. ;)

So do you want to see more, or am I boring you to tears?
