Yeah baby, guess what I spent today doing? Packing up this....
which is approximately 375 swap items to be sorted by color group for the Hippity Hop Easter Swap. The good news is that the pile above now looks like this thanks to a couple hours of work and the help of my trusty assistant Shosh without whom I probably would have a large bald spot on either side of my head.
I just need to add the last minute arrivals and haul them to the post office and they will be off to lots of happy little swappers throughout the country and Canada. These are some sweet girls AND I can say that this swap just blew me away because out of 56 swappers NOT ONE PERSON flaked, dropped or disappeared! This is nearly unheard of and I while I am not sure if it is because they are all so reliable and responsible (what I want to believe) or if I just scared everyone up front so they behaved. LOL regardless, this was a doozy of a swap to manage and I appreciate everyone's cooperation so much!!
On to journal pages. I am on day 10 of the 21 Day Challenge. I think we hit the "challenge" part over the weekend. I know I did. I got behind by tying myself up with the notion that I had to actually JOURNAL aka write every day. Then I realized, "well that's dumb, this is MY journal and I can do whatever I want." So I have now been allowing myself to write as little or as much as I want to each day. Day 6 over there has lots of journaling but today's entry has just a bit of stamping but lots of fun fabric.
I have posted all of my pages in a flickr album in case you are following along. If you are interested in working on your own art journal or starting one and need some prompts and support, let me know here. A couple of friends and I are thinking of starting a regular journal group to support each other and help push us out of our safe zones.
