Showing posts from June, 2014


In an effort to catch-up on all my journals, absolute insanity has ensued. The desk proves the point! First of all it was Draw Your Awesome Year and getting the June background finished and on to filling in the days based on travel notes. Next was Journal 52. This became more complicated as the grand ideas for each weekly prompt just never worked and lots of angst and rethinking followed. Looking at Chelle's samples, I felt this was meant to be simple and nothing more than a background for journaling. One prompt was "Making a mandala". Since I have absolutely no interest in this topic and a complete inability to make repeated patterns of symmetrical shapes this was a tough one. Then i found a sample of Washi tapes, dye cut a circle from it and had fun with something completely crazy. Progress was extremely slow on completing all 6 prompts and one prompt remains to be made as using my Tombows and the blending pen to create a scene did not work. A re think, well…

Now what week is this. WOYWW

Here I am after four weeks of travel. We spent a week traveling to Florida to mee our daughter and fmilyat Disney world. Total visual overload. Wild an crazy! Tried to keep up journals, well sort of. Too much happening, made brief notes and now catching up. ( i should say I had gel nails put on before I left and they ar now so long I cannot type.)
Here is desk everything dumped. Journal pages completed today for Draw Your Awesome Year. Rest is vacation stuff, Waiting for a  home.

 I managed a visit to Urgent Care on day 3 in Orlando only to find I had acute bronchitis. (Second time this happened on a visit to Florida) Add to that dehydration. It was 92 degrees for first two days and on day 2 we spent day in the Magic Kingdom.  Very hot sweaty and miles of walking.  Lesson learnt. After that I was big consumer of water. It was really Fabulous.  I am a total Mouse fan. Disney world is quite incredible  It was hard to get our family to see you have to plan what you want to do.  D…
