Over at the Cottage, I am involved in a couple of circle journals and this month I simply got desperately behind on them. If you have never done a circle journal before, it is simply a group of artists that gets together to form a circle. Each individual artist creates a journal and everyone has their own theme for their journal. The journals then go in a circle around the group and each artist makes an entry into the journal. It is a fun and fantastic way to create a keepsake/inspirational piece made up of other artist's/friend's work.
This is my entry in Cami's book. Her theme is The Ways you relax/de-stress... so my entry is all about escaping into a good book. The journaling says: "When it comes time for me to de-stress from my life, I like to escape within a good book. Modern chick-lit is my fave. I like novels that are happy and have a great sense of humor. It allows me to escape for a few hours and escape into someone else's life. Just that quick little escape usually gives me enough perspective on whatever is stressing me out in my life so that everything doesn't seem so bad when I come out of my book. Funnily enough, this is something that I have done my entire life. When I was a pre-teen/teenager, my favorite escape was into the pages of Pollyanna. Her "glad game" kept it all in perspective when teenage troubles got me down."
I think that the papers are foofala, but I am not sure... click on the image to get a better view of it.
I have a new circle journal starting and I almost have my book completed so I will be sharing it soon...
In other news, DH accidentally spilled his coffee on my camera on Saturday so I am shopping for a new camera. I think that I have decided on a Kodak Easyshare Z612...I know shocker, I NEVER thought that I would consider a Kodak, but everything I read about it, seems to make it the best option in my price range. Does anyone have any feedback or better ideas???
