WOYWW #339 - Mostly the Rest of the Book.

Hello Friends and Desk Hoppers,

I have not seen you in awhile. Life is crazy and every time I think about writing a blog post it is never Wednesday! I was planning on writing this one yesterday, but instead I made cookies and then packed a great big sweets and cocoa filled care package for my kid who is living away. Don't worry..I sent a gift card for a grocery store too so he won't live on cookies alone :) So This morning I am hurrying to get this post written and up for WOYWW! I want to run around and visit desks I have not seen in awhile :) (If you are confused...WOYWW is a blog hop linky party hosted by the fabulous Julia Dunnit over at Stamping Ground..check it out).

So, you ask, what is happening on my desk. Well today I do plan to start working on a big project. It is a 2 foot by 2 foot canvas so it will not fit on my desk at all! I will have to do it on my cutting table in another room and stand up through the whole process. It is a Christmas gift and I can't show you yet because the recipient reads my blog! So I will show you the rest of my book instead. Throughout the month of November I became a real lift Youtube channel content maker..LOL. I made 20 videos in 21 days all filled with my art journal pages. You see this blogger named Dawn Sokol declared November to be National Nonstop Journaling Month and challenged the known universe to art journal everyday! I accepted the challenge and then one upped it by challenging a few of my friends to make a video about it everyday as well. You can tell by the number 20 in 21..I missed a day...but that is pretty good. I did write a blog post the other day showing photos of all the pages I had done to that point...you can see that HERE. And now I will show you the rest of the book :) OK, well there is 9 1/2 pages left in the book I have not journaled yet...but I will..I promise!
Here we go with the photos....










If you wanted to watch me make any of these pages...they are all right here at my 

And on December 1st I rested...ok..I made cookies and went to the post office and the grocery store and did laundry and made spaghetti and and and...but I DID NOT art journal :)

I hope you enjoy my pages and my silliness...leave me a comment if you did.

    1. Thank you Sandy :) I laugh at the tea saying but really..if you can't sit down and resolve it over a cup of nice tea then it is a serious problem :)

  9. What a whirl of activity, Shel, and what simply gorgeous journal pages. I love all the colours. Beautiful! Thank you for such a lovely comment - I am so glad your hubby is doing so well post-cancer - it's always encouraging to hear such things. It's going to take time, but I know I'll get there in the end.

    Happy WOYWW,

    1. Thank you so much +JackieP Neal! I just felt with my Mom senses that the kid needed some home made love :) Believe me I don't do it all..my house is a MESS lol. I need art to make me sane and to give me a medium in which to reach out to others who are similar to me. Like you my friend <3
