(closing the door)

After nearly ten years of blogging,
I have decided to close 4:53 am.
It's just time.

Grace and peace to you, my blog friends.

(journal page, etc...)

Another combination page.
 The Documented Life Journal prompt: acrylic paint
 Documented Faith prompt: Hebrews 10:24
The side tip out has a list underneath of ways to encourage others.
A good reminder! 

More of the glitter center flowers.
I have enjoyed making these while listening to Pandora Radio.
Happy mail bits.

This one is a trial and error (mostly error) attempt at roses stamped with the end of a celery stalk.
Not exactly thrilled with the end product, but I will cut the papers smaller and use them in happy mail  as well.
It's one of those "process" things.


The weather is actually springlike today!
70 degrees and sunny!
Love that.

Have a good week.

(new matryoshka)

We went on our annual visit to the Broadway Market in Buffalo on Saturday.
I am always looking for nesting dolls to add to my collection.
This one called my name. 
You know... red with white polka dots. 
There are five dolls to this one.
Had to bring it home, along with a couple more painted eggs.


Working on another journal page today.
What are you up to this day?
Do tell.

(recent video)

I recently completed a small Journaling by 5s project.
Here is a peek at that little book.

(journal page for this week)

 The prompt for this week in the Documented Life Project Journal:
marks and doodles with focal point
The Documented Faith prompt:
I Peter 2:17
As usual, I am combining the two prompts.

This page began with a gelli print that I wondered about even using, because of so much black.
It was one of the first gelli printing attempts. 
Glad to use it here.
Hate to waste.

Have an excellent week!

(page for this week)

This page is also a combination of the two groups I participate in.
For Documented Life Project, the prompt was borders and the scripture verse is the prompt for Documented Faith. 
Purple is not a color I would normally use, so this is a stretch for me.
The background is a gelli print and the hearts are cut from gelli prints as well. The book text (scalloped edge) was sent to me in some happy mail. It is in another language and was older paper. It did not take the color so well, but I am okay with that. The rest of the page was just doodling.

Can't believe it is Wednesday!
Only a few more days until spring begins.
Love that.

(latest journal page)

This page is a combination of two prompts from two journal groups.
From the Documented Life Project Journal group: marks and doodles
From the Documented Faith group: Romans 8:38-39

This page will be added to my 2015 journal, blogged about on January 1st.

(cabinet card journal)

This is a random journal, made from leftover papers and a vintage cab card.
I decided on two rings to put this simple journal together.
Easier to do and easy to take apart for work on the pages.
 Ivory seam binding ribbons are tied to one of the rings.
I was gifted an entire roll of that binding from Dawn at The Feathered Nest in a recent give away.
Love it!

(bundle journal)

two of the nine pockets inside

This bundle journal was made from some recycled jeans and lots of fabric scraps.
It measures  5 feet long by 7 inches tall. It folds up to measure 7 inches by 8 inches. 
There are nine pockets, each with 5 or 6 gelli print papers to be used for journaling or photos or art work.
The back of the bundle is all strips of fabric and the inside with the pockets is just more scraps sewn onto different fabrics.
Lots of fun.

(this week's journal page)

...for the Documented Life Project 
Documented Faith.
The DLP prompt is--> layers.  
There are many layers on this page. 
The DF prompt is--> Matthew 21:22
The circles were cut from a gelli print piece that I received in some happy mail from SusanG. 
The tag on the right was painted last year, inspired by Leike of the DLP 2014 group. 
I typed the verse on a vintage typewriter and glued it down last.
I almost hated to layer this page.
The background was one of my first gelli prints. 
It is a bit lost now.

I love the process of creating these pages. 
Thanks for stopping by.

(two more)

Guess I let some time escape. 

Here are a couple more passages in my Journaling Bible.
Love this project!!!

(cheerful note)

What a sweet surprise I found in my post box today!
My blogging friend, Shanda, sent me the card and a delicate string of hearts.
It warmed my heart.
Thank you, dear.

(more added passages)

This one is more wrinkly because there is another glued to the back. 

This was a redo. I originally had taped a shipping tag to the edge. It was too heavy and would catch when opening and closing the bible. So....I carefully cut it off and added more washi tape and the words with Versamark.


I am battling a cold.
Guess it was my turn.

Laying low and keeping warm,
