I'm still reading the same books this week so I didn't want to post about them....what's the sense but I have moved onto the 2nd chapter in the NLT Bible....Exodus. Also, I watched both movies that Connie from the Far Side of Fifty recommended (she's on my side bar)......The Great Alone and Harry and Snowman. I loved both of them as one is about the Iditarod dog sled race and I love dogs and the other movie is about a man and his horse and I love horses! True documentary style movies that I love. I always think real people are so much more interesting than made up ones. Everyone has a story and is interesting to me whether they think so or not. Thank you, Connie, I really enjoyed them both.
I finally got going with my bullet journal after looking on Pinterest and watching videos on You Tube about them.........here's what I have so far and it is so much fun too! It combines my love of planning and list making with my love of colors and coloring...I really am going back to my childhood!
This is what it looks like after I glued some pictures and quotes on the cover of my pink composition book.....
I tried to 'gussy' it up but failed miserably but I will get better with practice I hope..........
I used some colored pencils I got for Christmas (Crayola Twistables....no sharpening involved!) and my Prisma color pens which I love but I need more colors. I also want to get some Tombrow (sp?) brush markers.....the You Tube videos give you a list of the supplies they use.....it will take time to build up but did I tell you how much I love art and office supplies too? Bullet Journaling and I are a match made in heaven especially since it is 'homemade' too.
As for my day so far......I've cleaned up the house, washed, hung, picked and folded 2 loads of laundry, went to the store for some ground beef and chips for Sloppy Joes tonight, worked a few rows on my shawl, read some blogs and ran the Spotbot in about 3 places.....Annie had some 'hacking' accidents after her surgery. I think it was the tube they put down their throat for anesthesia but she's fine now. I also looked for a homemade recipe for Spotbot detergent and I found one, where else?, Pinterest! I need to make that, iron my fabric to the interfacing for my project bag, make supper and if I have any energy left I would like to work on my front closet....remember when I started painting it many moons ago? Yep, another WIP! I hope you are having a great Monday!
