Thursday Sunshine

Today was beautiful…sunny with a little breeze…

My morning starter…

Work has been great. I just try to keep up with the changes. We were going to stop requiring appointments on Saturday (5/1), but now that’s been pushed back for 2 weeks.

My shifting project keeps making me happy…I’m already done with Grisham…so it’s on to the “H” section.

Felt pretty cute today…

Went grocery shopping after work and wandered around for an hour, hungry, but I didn’t buy too much crap to eat, so I call it good.

I originally went because I needed creamer for my coffee.

I have to be at work an hour earlier on Fridays and Saturdays, so I need to go to bed…

All Staff meeting in the morning, so I CANNOT be late. This will likely be my last chance to hear from our Library Director, as she is retiring in a few weeks.

(More Changes a’Coming)

Goodnight, y’all.

Junk Journals from old books.

So, I got hooked up with Junk Journal Junkies on Facebook, so my feed is full of gorgeous books that folks have made or received.
Also…So. Much. Lace.

Anyway, as I’m so situated as to have access to books (heh), I picked up a few likely victims…

I’m definitely thinking “themes,” so in order L to R, Love, Coffee, Travel, practice, and Politics.

I think that last book will need to be swapped for a thicker book.

The practice book is a badly decayed Mother Goose. I thought to make it the Coffee book, because I love the cover:

But I’m not certain that the old cover will make it…

It’s all fits and starts when it comes to all this. I’m full of ideas, but lack motivation. I know what to do, but lack the energy.

I am bereft without the LOML* and my heart is wounded by loneliness.

…but make art while the laundry runs…

*LOML = Love Of My Life

The new book everyone is talking about.

world of artist

I pre-orderd this book because I don’t always want to see how artists make their journal pages…I just want to see their pages sometimes. It’s like I can peer between the covers of THEIR journals and get inspired by the fact that there seem to be infinite possibilities for pages to make.

Even if I can’t draw.

I have no ambition to get any of my pages into a book someday. I just play. And playing makes me happy.

That is SO enough for me – but this is a very good book.

1000 pages

I have the first one too. Love them both…
