Here’s what I’ve been doing:
Packing up my classroom for the summer, sheparding flocks of errant sheep back & forth across the school yard, eating peaches, sticking my nose deep into my blooming stargazer lilies and getting orange pollen all over my nose, going to the store WITH the pollen on my nose, snuggling with my cat Buck who smells like a skunk, taking 2 hour naps, watching So You Think You Can Dance and cheering like I’m at a concert. WHILE. I’m conducting all of that business. My FULL TILT BOOGIERS have been stitching up some pretty awesome journals.
Sara made the one above. I love the way she used baker’s twine to sew her book together!
Gina made the one below. It’s big. It’s bright. It’s beautiful. It’s wow. I’m going to get some blue waxed linen STAT!
If you want to be constantly filled with ideas, teach an online class. The people who sign up for your class will amaze and delight you with their sheer creative SPUNK. It’s a buzzing bee hive of a class full of funny nice people.
Susan Elliot made this handsome journal. Doesn’t it look like some gunslinging outlaw woman might’ve carried it in her saddlebags and wrote on it at night around a campfire under the stars?
Michelle made this from an old record album while her cat Johnny nodded his approval.
Briana made this warm stunning journal. The old leather albums have such charm!
There are more… Which, I’ll be adding to a photo album on the sidebar.
But for right now, I’m headed back outside to get some more orange pollen on my nose.
