How about Smash Life?
Take that journal down from the shelf…
Let the friend and creator of the journal know how much I love it. More than just a pretty sitting on a shelf. It is time to fill this journal.
My first attempt is a photo from 1999. January 2013 is when this picture became more than just something shoved away in a box. Club Scrap stamp on green card stock, heat embossed with white embossing powder. Spirals and wheels made me think of the windmills in California. A song from about 1968 had sort of moved itself up from the dungeon of my brain. “Windmills of Your Mind” is the song and I wrote a bit of the lyrics on this page.
Papers are from the stash of stuff Jann Gray gave me along with the journal. October Afternoon and 7 Gypsies are among the papers from 2010.
Pictures of my travels in our work are taken mostly daily. Just need to be a little more creative in how to use them. Select a representative amount for a trip/load and have them printed on 4″ x 6″ photo paper collage style. Walgreens is printing my photos.
Cut out the photos……cut out the printed map of the load/trip….paste and glue to a page in the journal and I have a start to my “Smash Life”
I am over the flu – finally! Now I’m in the throes of trying to conquer a 40 year pack a day smoking habit which is proving to be a bit of a challenge. My doctor told me I needed to quit before I get myself locked into full blown COPD. Cold Turkey is more like “Lukewarm” Turkey. At least I’ve cut the pack a day down to ONE cigarette a day. Maybe that is progress. Poor Joe. I’m not sure if he can say that he has been carried home on his shield after the days battle. I hope he can survive this. I’m not sure I can but I’m going to work one day at a time at it.
