Don't Be Shy

Hello everyone!

I've got an opening page to an art journal I'm (slowwwwwwly) working on. It's actually a cheap souvenir album I got on a beach trip years ago. lol But the pages are this really thick pulp paper stuff so I knew it would be perfect for holding lots of paints and glues.

The funny thing is: whether it's a new notebook, journal, blank book, artsy book, whatever, I always leave the first page undone. I've been automatically doing that for years and I'm not sure why. lol I think it's because I thought that I couldn't do the "title" page till the rest of the book was finished because how would I know what the title should be? And somehow that habit made its way to notepads and list pads as well. lol

Anyhoo, I took a chance this time and went ahead and played on the title page:


I left some blank space on the left hand side to maybe write in something later. So it's still sort of undone, right? lol

Let the Birthday Hooking...BEGIN!

Hi everyone!

I actually got some crocheting stuff done that does not involve dolls in any way! lol Once October rolls around, it's like Birthday/Holiday Central Station around here so I've got to get started on gifts! I got this shawl finished over the weekend:


I used a pattern from the September/October 2013 issue of Crochet Today. So many patterns...so little time!
