Books, Cats, and Journal Pages....

There are several people who comment here and mention they would like to begin an art journal. Sometimes we need a little nudge to get going or we need some direction before we start down the path. With that in mind I mention to you a great review of a book about journaling. You can read the review here at iHanna's blog. This is the book she reviews:



Take a look....it might just be the gentle push that gets you started. Or maybe you aren't ready yet but either way you might enjoy the review and the book.

This has been quite a weekend for us. Our LuLu has been sick.



We took her to the vet last week and she got three medications....which were almost impossible to get down her! They started making her sick so we called the vet and they changed one of the meds but she's still getting sick every time she eats. So we have stopped giving her the meds because the original problem seems to be better....now if we can just get her over this tummy upset stuff we'll be back to normal. She's such a sweetie. I feel so bad for her....just like a mommie!

I've been keeping up with my pages. Here are the latest ones:

This one was a quickie. I wanted to use that big pink rose for quite sometime and that was the day. I like the background and was sorry that I covered up so much of it. I used some of my packing tape along the side, top and bottom.

This page looks so much better in person. I LOVE the background on this page!! And it sort of makes me think of Mardi Gras.

So that's what's been happening in my world. I hope you've been doing something more fun than I have.

PS - I have been getting some amazing postcards and I'll be sharing them with you in a couple of days. I'm waiting for the last one to arrive so I can get some photos.
