399 WOYWW.....

Today is Tuesday and i thought I would set up to look in on everyone tomorrow.  My right hand is painful as the old carpal tunnel surgical site are was stretched on Sunday when I cut out all kinds of bits and piece and made a thank you car.  My friend Deanie gave me a wonderful Cookbook by Jacques Pepin my favorite chef.  No photos of that but here is my desk.


Saturday worked on Wanderlust 2017 with guest artist Wilna Furstenberg.  She used acrylic ink, something I did not have.  My first attempt was in a large 9x12 journal and then  in my tiny hand made journal.  (see below)  Not quite what I expected though the style holds possibilities and the ink has great properties.  It will be a great medium for journaling and Wilna's style will have many uses.  ( Oh yes, a medical visit today in San Antonio meant I could visit Michaels and the 40% coupon on mobile lept into my hands when i saw the inkset). So next month my daily journal will feature inks.......hopefully not a blotches and drops result.

Here is a little from my last daily art journaling,  have some catching up to do.

yes i am falling behind.

reading all your posts has effected me as now back to drinking tea most afternoons.  MY HEB, grocery store, sells PG Tips!

Yesterday my hand hurt so much that I took a nap under the vigilant eyes of Xochitl(the upside down one) and Ms Kitty.  I crawled out and took this photo.  

Today it was bight sunny and 82F  what a crazy winter so far.

That 's it from me see, you all around the workspace.

OHHHHHHH 3 hours messing with Google.  My primary account is now my secondary account is at last found.

Happy art crafty 2017, good health to you in the coming year.

So how is everyone.  Since my last post my life has be out of control, visitors, parties, shopping, gathering and so on.  So here i am Jan 2 and about to reorganize my studio and make it paper friendly.  As a short person I have to use ladder for upper shelves so have to rethink everything in terms of use frequency.  There is no Documented life this year but a group was formed for all of us who want to continue, Life Documented 2017.  It is a lot less organized and I shall just play along for now as there are so many talented people in the group and I am so inspired by them.  On Friday i start Wanderlust2017.

This is my workspace after making the monthly divider for my Life Document 2017 new art journal.  Not had time to make covers and introduction page as most of it is in the "maybe" idead stage.  The binders are the same as used form 2017 DLP

This is the divider for january and maybe I will keep this way of doing it for each month.

The reverse oside of the divider showing the 2 tags in a pocket.

The two tags, one is for tod do lists and other notes on the month.  This is an attempt to put all my lists and notes in one place rather than scattered in notebooks, backs of envelopes,  slips of paper and hence lost.

When i was checking out ideas I Googled Planners and was amazed by the detail young women go into to run a family.  They keep planners for every part of their life.  Cross reference everything add in n words and a lot of "cute". No wonder they are always tired and "busy".

So on this note i will end this and make an effort to put stuff away, figure out which leftover needs to be eaten first  and where I put the sausage rolls and mince pies.
