More Journal Pages & a Reminder about the Mixed Emotions Workshop!

Here are a few more completed pages from my Remains of the Day Journal. This journal is seriously fun to work in...

I've started a ritual where I take a few minutes in the morning to do some extra decorating on the page, and then write on the page in the evening. For example this page went from this...


to this when it was complete...

I added a journaling card into the envelope...

P.S. I totally loved the movie Inception (hence the photo on this page). Have you seen it? I'm totally fascinated by dreams anyway, and this is a real mind-bender!

I'm deep into preparing for the upcoming "Mixed Emotions" workshop that I'm teaching with Marit Barentsen and having a blast with it! I really hope you consider joining us - it is going to be TONS of fun!!! Click here for more information and/or to register!

I will leave you with today's photo of Johnny enjoying my latest bag of journaling scraps. Can you see his little eyes peeking out? This is why I have to lock any open bags of stuff in the bathroom at night. LOL...


Thanks so much for visiting and have a wonderful, creative day my friends!
