Left-overs are great, aren't they? Especially when you've got plans to make some art. Who has time to cook when you've got a project in the making?! I decided to create a page featuring my love of left-overs. Do you get that when you see this pic?
I'm trying to work on a new attitude of worry and stress less. I've got to be a calmer me in 2010. Wait. Is that a resolution cause I'm not a resolutionist type of woman! Am I stressing about this? Shut up. LOL!
Do you make New Year's resolutions? I used to but I failed terribly over and over again so I decided to abandon the idea. I did an interview with myself about this. LOL! YES, I interviewed myself. You should try it sometime to see how honest you can be with yourself. Click on this journal page to get a better look.
I received a lovely little box in the mail on Dec. 31st from my good blog buddy, Jolene from www.HippyHippyHooray.blogspot.com. I love the wrapping that she covered my little journal in. Mija, is a splanglish word. And because I'm from north of the border, I won't even go into the correct spelling of the word. It's a loving name bestowed on daughters but good friends and relatives use it too when addressing a loved one. I guess that makes me "loved." LOL!!
Here's the cover of the journal my daughter purchased for my birthday through Jolene. I love the crazy/cool collage details!
Signatures in this journal are all nestled in double sided paper. Jolene gives a lot of attention to details.
I love the exposed spine that reveals the famous (and extremely difficult for me to master) Coptic stitch. The various shades of waxed linen she uses compliment each other. You can view some of her other journals and some other awesome art at her daughter Jill's etsy shop. Go to www.Bellakarma.etsy.com to get an eyeful.
